I’ve been using concentrated hydrochloric to reduce the alkalinity in our above ground swimming pool. It seems to take a huge amount to bring it down to “ok” range of around 100ppm.
Any issues using appropriately diluted HCl to reduce the pH for a few heavy waterings? I suspect there is a lot of carbonate trapped in the soil from previous waterings, for any excess acid to react with

It takes a year or so because it's causing the microbiota to do the work rather than just causing a chemical reaction, like adding acid. I don't know enough to recommend it, but it might be worth some research.
