We believe balancing should be as easy and direct as possible – including lowering your alkalinity. Easy Acid™ has the same strength and better alkalinity control than a gallon of muriatic acid. 2 1/3 lbs. of Easy Acid™ equals 1 gallon of muriatic acid for alkalinity control. Easy Acid™ is safe to use, takes up less storage and fumes are virtually eliminated. Easy, direct and safe.
