Litmus paper will verify if you neutralise it. Acid may not make a
difference in looks, before you experiment you should test a section.
There are many other totaly safe ways to clean anything. As I said my
neighbor had to fill in with dirt his $100,000 pool from acid ruining
the main drain. How about your pump and boiler, etc., acid eats metal.
Get a garden sprayer to apply whatever you use and do a test, and
remember the Fumes will stay in the pool with you, even with a wind.
You are messing with nasty stuff that has burnt my lungs and ruined
the galvanised coating off of conduit that rusted a week later, but
was ok for 30 years. Dont kid around with acid, it bites back hard.



Once your skin or eyes are burned, it's too late. Whenever I use a
strong acid I work under a vented hood and use as small amounts as
possible. I see a danger with using acid to clean a large pool.
There are much safer chemicals to use.

Doesn't muriatic give off hydrogen gas when it reacts with lime?
Chlorine gas?
