I question your eductation because you seem to be the opposite of a chemist.
so far every problem faced, instead of thinking like a chemist and wanting to work with the raw materials, you turn immediately to a hydroponic prebottled product.
When all we need is Cl and h2o you turn to 3 pre bottled solutions geared marijuana cultivation , as these items are not found at Walmart or lowes home garden section.
When we need an acid, you turn to prebottled hydropnic ph down instead of the simple hcl element. Then when questioned about your choice, you go to concrete cleaner from lowes. I quickly searched for it on lowes website and only got back quickrete concrete cleaner with no label to tell me what it's made of and phosphoric acid cleaner which is made up of H3O4P.
Also, as a chemist, you keep describing "adding granular powder into water" as this super complex process comparable to jumping thru a burning onion ring at 150 mph.
A real chemist FIRST makes a hypothesis, THEN tests this hypothesis. You made a guess, didn't test it, then stick by your guess like its law.
Here's what a real chemist does. You asked how to make hypchlorous acid. Here's how a chemist does it. (And no it's not buying a bottle from your grow shop)
"In this article, we describe a method for the preparation and stabilization of a pure form of HOCl for potential use as a pharmaceutical agent."
"Hypochlorous acid was prepared in 154 mM NaCl by acidifying reagent-grade NaOCl to the pH range of 3.5 to 4.0 with dilute HCl."
This translates to:
hypochlorous acid was prepared in 154 millimoles (aka .154 moles ) of NaCl (sodium chloride aka table salt)
by acidifying reagent-grade NaOCl (By Ph downing sodium chloride "the thing permaclone says to stay away from yet here are scientists using it in a laboratory to create the best stable version of hydroclorous acid" to the pH range of 3.5 to 4.0 with dilute HCl. (Ph to 3.5-4.0 Using hydrocloric acid)
All this scientist did was ph water down with acid and then added sodium chloride.
also from the article "Stabilized HOCL is a low-concentration, acidified, unbuffered solution of HOCl in saline."
Yet our permaclone chemist keeps asking "YES BUT HOW WILL YOU BUFFER PH".
Also, he recommends uc roots which is .028 hypchlorus acid. Claims don't make your own because you can't ph. Even if you don't ph and add pool shock into water that creates a high ph of 8.5 and only make 9% HOCl like HTH says, YOU'LL still make over 300% more HOCl than uc roots
So please, tell us where you got your education so we may reach out to your old professor so he can look over your statements.
I can tell you I'm no chemist yet I've dropped more information, more facts, and sites more sources of information from gov websites, chemical companies, Wordpress, and even a little pathetic wiki yet you haven't given a single source to back your own statements up.
HTH went on the record to saying simply adding pool shock to water (nothing else. No magic. No ph buffer. No religious sacrifice of a goat) creates anywhere from 9%-95% hypchlorous acid depending on ph. This is a chemical company that's been around since 1928 and sole scientific focus is on chlorine.
You claim they are wrong and you won't disclose sources. You won't disclose education. You aren't a chemical company. You don't even deal in the Chlorine business. You sell cloning collars.
So if I want scientific facts on silk, do I go and ask someone who sells iron?
