Hydrochloric Acid is used widely in water treatment as an effective neutralization agent for alkaline (high pH) effluent. It is also regarded as a very suitable alternative to Sulphuric Acid in this application as a result of the inorganic by-products that are generated in this process. It is also used in some swimming pool purification systems.
Hydrochloric Acid is primarily used when waste liquid may go to inland water systems or onto land for irrigation.
