The Lowering KH via Lime & Muriatic Acid
is itself an answer to something in other threads as well as privately submitted questions.
I seem to offend Gurus, I do not mean to, but I do. I intend
to offend the “cut-‘n-paste-experts
” along with those that cite research they have not read; they are a blight.
As part of my policy not to argue with the anointed or offend any religious sensibilities I will simply state that I have been informed that CO2 reduces KH. I am not picking a fight, proxy or otherwise.
In several of the discussions about KH, there have been questions and
answers that suggested carbonic acid reduces KH.
I did not care to deviate from the discussion, I decided it better to make specific points of fact in separate threads so as not to side track another discussion.
I have a series of these, some requested, some folks have been asking me over the last couple of years, some based on what I have seen here and in other forums.
The main thing; it is kind of fun
to take on issues that some seem to take as a matter of opinion.
Most of what I say is easily verifiable fact and/or can easily be observed.
- The CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, The Merck Veterinary Manual, Tom Barr’s pre-June 2009 missives and a number of textbooks from classes taken over the last few years are my primary resources, though when citing something I try internet links.
So what I say is not meant to be a revelation, an opportunity to lay it out and if there are questions, perhaps we
can explain or figure it out together.
None of what I say is original, I am not particularly bright. I am persistent and inquisitive, and always wanting to learn. I try not to plagiarize anybody, but sometimes in running off the cuff stuff, well…
I think one of the most interesting answers I receive (and yes I have received it here) is “just Google it and see all of the posts…” or “that’s what everyone says…”
Hopefully it is a friendly mocking of the “experts.”
I am old enough to know how many things I was taught and thought were true that we now laugh about…
