      Very slow dissolve
      Have never used this product and didn't read all of the reviews. Don't know if the product dissolves faster in warmer water (late season), but it lay in the pool for several days before dispersing. Next year, may dissolve in a large bucket and then add to the pool.

      Great Product
      Using Chemicals from "In the Swim" has made the maintainence on our 30 foot pool so easy that 15 min a day is all thats required to keep it clean and test the water balance. It has stayed stable all season with less cost than ever before. I'm very happy with their specials and the savings on S & H and utilize those to buy volume enough for us every time I can. Big savings overall. Keep up the great work !!!!

      Works great
      I bought this product a month ago because we where having problems getting the chemicals balanced which was causing our water to have a green tint. We applied a cap full in our pool in the evening and in the morning the pool was clear and the chemicals balanced. I would recommend this product to anyone.

      Correct chemical balance
      When opening the pool this spring I had low alkalinity. Used this product to bring the pool water back into balance. Worked as advertised.

      works great
      I used this product to lower my PH level that has been very high and the product worked great. By the next day, after circulating the water overnight by leaving my pump on, I was able to see great results. The pool is back in balance and the water looks clear and clean once again. This product solved my problem great. Use as directed!

      Better than Muriatic
      A little pricier method of reducing ph than muriatic acid, but much better odor (almost none), and a better symbiotic chemistry for salt water pools. Water so clear it looks like liquid air. If you don't like the smell of liquid acids, you will love this method.

      Great Price
      At just shy of 100 grand this muriatic acid did the job!

      How much does it contain?
      Since buying this product my hair and muscles have grown significantly. I am not sure what purity of weapons grade plutonium is in this product, but it definately cleaned up my pool, my neighbors pool, and the surrounding lakes are now all algae free for 50 miles!

      Worked Great!
      Here in Memphis, TN we have naturally very soft water (20ppm) out of the tap. I was noticing the mortar from the stone copping in the bottom of the pool. I used the product in my endless pool to bring it up to 200ppm. The mortar has stopped eroding away. I will continue to use this as needed.

      Spectacular Chemicals
      I have been purchasing nearly all of my chemicals from In The Swim for about the past twelve swimming season. All of their chemicals arrive quickly, and all of them work well at a much lower price than the local pool stores.I have owned a pool for more than thirty years and wish I would have discovered In The Swim then. The everyday prices are phenomenal and when they have a special the deals are only better. From pool balancing to chlorine tablets, they keep me "In The Swim" all season. Now if ... read more they could only keep it sunny for my weekend parties, we would be all set !!!

      Stuff works, just be ready for a cloudy pool!
      While the price is great and it was shipped super fast, the product needs some clarification if you're using it. Number 1, be extremely careful not to use more than necessary: Number 2, be ready for a cloudy pool for at least 2 days; Number 3, be ready to vacuum the bottom of your pool after the 2-3 day wait so you can see the bottom of the pool again. All that said, the product did seem to increase the PH somewhat. Just be careful.....

      First I do not have a pool. In 2013 I started making my own detergent. The recipe calls for washing soda, which I learned is soda ash. My first bucket kept my house in detergent for the past 4 years. Not to mention periodic batches to family. Making my own detergent has saved us so much money. I doubt I will ever buy detergent again.

      incresed the PH
      I tried everything to increase my pH this year and nothing would touch it until I bought this pH increaser. It is 100% soda ash. It took a few days and 20# but water is a perfect 7.5. It's just soda ash but if your water too acidic that is what you need. The container also has a helpful calculation formula on the bucket to figure gallons of water in pool

      Love it!
      I just ordered another 4 bottles of this powdered acid. I was skeptical when I ordered it for the first time and was very surprised at how well it worked. It's so much easier to use then the liquid and no harsh acid smell! It's even seems to work a little better than the liquid but that might be because you don't have to use as much. I am hooked and will be using this from now on. With my salt pool I am always fighting high PH & alkalinity and this seems to help keep it in control.

      Awesome
      Worked like a dream no splashing like with liquid no mess

      Love this stuff, works like a charm :). It's so nice to not have to handle the liquid acid, especially when you are as clumsy as I am!

      Worked as advertised
      We recently had our pool re-plastered and filled. It's going to be a salt system so we did not install a chlorinator to be able to use tabs with stabilizer. In the first 30 days we are using liquid chlorine (bleach) and needed the CA for stabilization. Four bottles set the level perfectly.

      Wow- what an improvement
      Our well water is incredibly hard (more than 2000 ppm TDS). I tried several things and finally decided the failure to get a good readings was because the water was simply not absorbing the chemicals. I was a bit anxious but added the 2 gallons of stabilizer/conditioner and the pool has been sparkling ever since.

      No sludge here!
      I just tried this product for the first time. I had read a few other comments saying the product was difficult to pour and left sludge in the containter. Those comments almost kept me from buying this product since convenience was the main point of buying the liquid stabilizer. I used one gallon this morning and it poured easily (about the consistency of a latex house paint). I added some pool water to the empty bottle and the bottle rinsed clean easily. No problems at all with dispensing. I'll ... read more retest the water this evening after circulating for the day to see if I need to add more.

    In The Swim Knowledge Pool: Water Balancers

    In The Swim's Dr. Pool

    Why Pool Water Balancers are Important

    Pool water balancers help you manage water quality and avoid pool staining from improper water chemistry. In addition, pool chlorine levels are regulated by pool water balance levels, and incorrect ranges cause skin and eye irritation, and destroys chlorine's ability to kill bacteria and other harmful contaminants.


    •    - High pH and alkalinity levels also makes chlorine very sluggish and at a pH of 8.0 over 50% of your chlorine is wasted.
    •    - Low pH is also a problem, and at a pH of 7.0, chlorine is overly active and depletes more rapidly.
    •    - High pH and alkalinity levels can cause unsightly scale deposits, cloudy water and eye irritation.
    •    - Low pH and alkalinity levels can cause etching and corrosion to pool equipment, covers and pool surfaces. 
    •    - Low alkalinity levels makes your pH level erratic and unstable, even after adjustment.
    •    - High alkalinity levels makes your pH level overly stable and difficult to adjust pH up or down.
    •    - Low calcium hardness creates aggressive water that seeks to satisfy a demand for hardness, in troublesome ways. 
    •    - Low stabilizer levels allows the sun to burn-off chlorine as fast as you can add it, resulting in unsanitary pool water.

    In order to maintain swimmer comfort and health and to protect the condition of pool surfaces and equipment, it is important to keep both pool ph chemicals on-hand. Other water balance levels are slower to change, but be sure to test and adjust alkalinity, hardness and stabilizer levels every spring, and each month during the season. With regular pool water testing, it's easy for any pool owner to make chemical adjustments and maintain balanced pool water. 

    •    - pH Increaser is a base used to raise low pH levels when 7.2 or lower
    •    - pH Reducer is an acid used to lower pH levels when 7.8 or higher (also lowers Total Alkalinity)
    •    - Alkalinity Increaser is used to raise low alkalinity levels when below 80 ppm
    •    - Calcium Hardness Increaser is used to raise low hardness levels when below 200 ppm
    •    - Stabilizer or Conditioner (Cyanuric Acid) is used to protect chlorine from the sun, best in range of 20-50 ppm

    As with all of our products at In The Swim, our water balance chemicals are of first-class quality and are available at economical, affordable prices. With the help of a good test kit and quality pool balancers, pool owners can easily maintain high water quality to protect their pool surfaces, reduce chlorine expense, and protect the health of swimmers. Water is balanced when pH, alkalinity, calcium hardness, chlorine and stabilizer levels are all within their recommended ranges: 

    •    - pH: 7.2 to 7.8
    •    - Total Alkalinity: 80 ppm to 120 ppm
    •    - Calcium Hardness: 200 ppm to 400 ppm
    •    - Stabilizer (Cyanuric Acid): 20-50 ppm
    •    - Free Chlorine: 1.0-2.0 ppm
