Acid is acid but if you're looking at the reviews, chances are you're like me and are wondering how strong it really is. Nowhere on the label of this product does it list the percentage of acid, which is odd. I did some digging around and found an old label of the same product that had the information.. and judging by how much it took to lower the Ph in the pool.. it's accurate. This product is 20% hydrochloric acid, which is 13 degrees baume. Standard muriatic acid for about the same price is 31.45% and 20 degrees baume. So it comes down to preference in strength. It's lighter concentration for those like me who get a bit freaked out working with strong acid near the pool.. especially if you've ever been hit with the fumes of regular acid.
When I picked this up at the store, I assumed this was 30% muriatic acid. It is not. This would be fine if you are diluting it, but I had previously used some 20% acid and found it too weak to do what I needed it to do (pool cleaning prior to paint). Nowhere on the container does it list the concentration. I had to come here to find out after I noticed it was not doing the job I expected. This is great if it will work for you because the fumes of standard muriatic acid require a respirator designed for acid. You probably still need one for this stuff but it doesn't generate fumes nearly as much.
We like to pick this stuff up for our pool when we're low and delivery will take too long from the pool supplier. It's pretty good quality for the price and gets the job done. Not as strong as the muriatic acid we get from the pool supplier thhough.
I have a 1999 Miata and I hadn't been able to clean the stock alloy rims with a variety of cleaners and methods. I diluted the muriatic acid with water and (with rubber gloves and eye protection and outdoors) just wiped it on repeatedly and it started taking off the discoloration almost immediately. The picture shows a cleaned section at the bottom. This was after they had been cleaned with soap and water. I used baking soda in water to neutralize the acid and rinsed thoroughly with water.
The countertop was great ,but installation leaves a lot to be desired, they damaged our cabinet and instalantio should have been a lot better, attitude of installer leaved alt to be desired.i heard they have since switched installers
This is my first review on Home Depot web site because I cannot agree with other reviewer's rating. As a home owner, I have done DIY projects such as building retaining wall and using 6x8x16 concrete block to build stairs. I have found that after these DIY constructions, my patio is left with grey mortar/cement stains. The bricks become grey. Regular cleaners cannot clean it. Last night, I tried this safer acid, Followed the dilution instruction, sprayed the diluted over the bricks. Waited few minutes and light brushed and rinsed off. After the surface is dry, the grey is gone and the original brick color is back!!!
Needed to clean a locker room floor that was a concrete pad in the locker room and tile in the bathroom area. We had a professional come and clean it with a machine and it still looked bad. This professional told us that it will never get cleaner! I got the muriatic acid and scrubbed the tile floors and tile walls. It was spotless and shiny after I scrub it down with the product. Be careful as it is very toxic and corrosive! After cleaning, I put a gloss coat on the tile floor. That Professional was amazed!
It doesn't say anywhere on the container what the actual acid content % is. Which would be helpful. if you just looking for a concrete cleaner. This would probably work. But for PCB etching... It to weak. The Other Blue Competitor, carries the high concentration Muriatic acid that works much better. Just frustrated it didn't list the concentration % on the bottle.
I'm a weekend warrior at best, when it comes to projects around the home, I recently constructed a flower bed wall with brick and mortar. I realize how important it is to be careful when using mortar to clean up as your going along, mortar by nature leaves a residue(film) that is difficult to get off. I had tried different products with little results, I tried the Green Safer Muriatic Acid, the product gave me "the knock down punch" needed to clean it up.
I buy hydrochloric acid (AKA "muriatic acid") to etch copper from printed circuit boards. I had hoped that this product would be the usual 10M (~31%) concentration of HCl, but it is very dilute. The MSDS quotes a concentration of "<25%." This puts the concentration at somewhere around 7.5M. While it does work, it is much slower than if it were of a proper concentration. I wish companies would stop trying to sell us "safer" products that do not work as well.
This product is more expensive than traditional muriatic acid and it is weaker than the muriatic acid sold by leading pool supply houses, Gallon to Gallon comparison makes other standard full-strength muriatic acid about 1/3 less in price. Given the additional dilution (less than 25% per MSDS) for this "Greener"...ahem...weaker version it would cost me about double to use this product over the long-time standard typical (31.45% HCL) Muriatic acid.
Home Depot Buyers: Please do a better job.
Cons: does not list concentration of hcl, weaker and more expensive than traditional acid.
I was recommended to use muriatic acid to clean off 40 years of soot and dirt from stonework in my house (around the fireplace). I was VERY worried about the idea of using acid, both in terms of hurting myself and damaging the house. I bought this because it looked reasonably safe. I took regular precautions (wore regular rubber gloves) and probably ended up dripping some on myself because a lot of the time I was working with my arms extended above me, so it ran down. The result was I didn't get hurt, and it did clean the stone up nicely. Not sure how much of that was the scrubbing action and how much was the acid (ie how clean would it have been if I'd just used water), but I felt like I was only going to do this job once, so may as well buy and use the proper stuff.
I bought this to use in my pool to lower the ph - I thought I was buying the usual strength muriatic acid I have always used...This is NOT it. It is "green" and "safer" as a result be prepared to just buy more. I went to the other national chain store that starts with a "L" and got the normal strength I have bought in the past. This stuff is useless....
Old disgusting toilet showed no sign of being able to be cleaned. A little of this plus some elbow grease did the trick. Its diluted enough that you don't feel like you are going to burn the skin off your hand if you accidentally touch it, but strong enough to do the job. Highly recommend it for porcelain (just be careful it doesn't eat away too much of your toilet's wax seal!)
