|Total Alkalinity Increaser|
Pool Solutions Total Alkalinity Plus raises the total alkalinity level in your pool to balance pH. Balances pool water to help prevent eye irritation, equipment corrosion, and plaster etching.
|Amount of Sodium Bicarbonate needed to increase Alkalinity|
|Desired Increase||Pool volume in gallons|
|10 ppm||.14 lbs.||.7 lbs.||1.4 lbs.||2.8 lbs.||7 lbs.||14 lbs.|
|20 ppm||.28 lbs.||1.4 lbs.||2.8 lbs.||5.6 lbs.||14 lbs.||28 lbs.|
|30 ppm||.42 lbs.||2.1 lbs.||4.2 lbs.||8.4 lbs.||21 lbs.||42 lbs.|
|40 ppm||.56 lbs.||2.8 lbs.||5.6 lbs.||11.2 lbs.||28 lbs.||56 lbs.|
|50 ppm||.70 lbs.||3.5 lbs.||7 lbs.||14.0 lbs.||35 lbs.||70 lbs.|
|*Caution: Do not add more than 10 lbs. per 10,000 gallons of water at one time. If the pool needs more than this, add the 10 lbs./10,000 gallons amount then retest 12 hours later. After testing, you can make the necessary adjustments. If the alkalinity is 50 ppm or lower, test for the presence of metals in the water before adjusting the alkalinity.|
For More Pool Chemicals
My test kit only check for chlorine and pH. What does the alkalinity do?
Total Alkalinity is a measure of the "buffering capacity" of water, or its ability to resist a change in pH. Low Total Alkalinity can cause: etching of pool plaster, corrosion of metal parts, staining of the pool surfaces, etc. High Total Alkalinity can cause cloudy water, burning of eyes, chlorine being ineffective, etc.
What can we use in our salt water pool to lower the alkalinity?
To decrease the alkalinity level in you pool, you can use dry acid, muriatic acid or simply partially drain and refill the pool. Just use caution as the acid will bring down the pH as well.
(5 out of 5 stars) Great Alkalinity

Pros: long-effective and most inexpensive
Cons: handling charge
This is a greatest Alkalinity I've ever found. I just closed my pool and did the water test. One bottle of Alkalinity in the spring time lasted to the end of the season. Great!!
