What should the alkalinity level be in a swimming pool?

A  Answered on 12/19/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Megan C.

The alkalinity ideal levels will vary between 80-120ppm please see; Total Alkalinity For Your Swimming Pool http://www.inyopools.com/pool-101-total-alkalinity.aspx 80-100 is most preferred, however, it is best to consult with the builder of the pool to request the specific chemistry ranges for your surface type.
