Response to At this point, I would recommend partially draining the pool and refilling with fresh water. The amount of acid you will need to add (depending on pool size) will bottom out the pH making the water very acidic. Partially draining and refilling will probably be a little quicker considering the fact that tap water is usually pH neutral.
