Using muriatic acid in swimming pools

I have a question. Does anybody know of a safer chemical to use in swimming pools? Right now, the one I use for therapy uses chlorine and muriatic acid, which is the same as hydrochloric acid. I’ve spent an hour online to see how dangerous this chemical is, and it’s not good. This has to be a safer alternative. What do you use in your swimming pool? Please leave a comment if you can help me with this problem. I would like to know which chemicals you use in your pool to keep it clean. Thanks!

    Thank you sending this to me. I am glad that nobody was hurt. I wrote this post because a friend of mine is a physical therapist for handicapped children. She is in the pool 5 days a week, 8 hours a day. She was concerned about her exposure to muriatic acid. I will forward this to her!
