Total Alkalinity raises the total alkalinity in swimming pool water. This product boosts the effectiveness of your pool water disinfectant, such as pool chlorine, as well as aids in the prevention of pool scale formation, metal corrosion, and etching of pool surfaces.
Total Alkalinity Increaser helps maintain pool pH level and eliminates pH “bounce.”
Test for total alkalinity with a reliable pool test kit. The desired range for total alkalinity is as follows:
- Fiberglass pools: 70-100 ppm (parts per million)
- Marcite, painted, tile, or exposed aggregate pools: 80-120 ppm
- Vinyl pools: 120-140 ppm
If the total alkalinity is less than the desired range, add Total Alkalinity Increaser directly to the pool water, while the pool pump is in operation, in accordance with the table below.
