|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.|

What can we use in our salt water pool to lower the alkalinity?
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.

I was advised to increase a pool alkalinity and based on the water test it was required to add 10lb of Alkalinity Increaser. Bought this product online at INYOPOOLS. Add the product to the pool following instructions on the bag.
Works fine. Happy with results
(5 out of 5 stars) This product has balanced my water almost to perfection
