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.

    Is that level the same for fiberglass pools?

I just purchased a house with a pool. I tested the pool water and according to the chart, I need to adjust the pH, alkalinity, chlorine and calcium hardness levels. How much of each do I need to add to my pool?

A  Answered on 10/18/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The amounts of each chemical you will need to add will depend on the volume of the swimming pool (gallons) and the actual chemical levels. You can use our How To Guide for reference.
