Muriatic acid isn't really all that bad for a lake in small quantities - same as stomach acid, for the most part. Oxalic acid is also found in plants, and is no biggie in small quantities. Still, I wouldn't go splashing gallons of it in nature, or you're bound to burn some spots.

All the bio kleen products are bio degradable. I'm not a chemist by any means. You could call then the owner answers the phone and he is the chemist great company. So far very happy with all there products. I used start brite hull cleaner before great stuff too. I wouldn't put it in that water but again I don't knew the end effects of it. John has a way better handle on it than myself. I've used Lysol toilet bowl cleaner on my red crownline and worked the best I that boat nothing else cleaned it very well. I would think it's safe for water as it goes down our drain! Right?

Ha! Correct!

Somehow I feel differently about what i put down the toilet then I do about my pristine lakefront but you're not wrong!

Cue the environmentalists.
