Total Alkalinity in Pool

Pool Alkalinity is one of the numerous factors that impact the quality of the swimming pool water. Total alkalinity is nearly associated with pH. It is to measure the pool water's capability to neutralize acids. Total alkalinity controls the pH level stable within the correct bracket level from 80 ppm to 150 ppm. 

During the summer season, it is recommended to test the swimming pool water at least twice every week. Test kits are designed to provide an accurate reading of the swimming pool water. The recommended level of total alkalinity for most swimming pools is between 80 to 120 parts-per-million.

Very low total alkalinity may result in uncontrollable changes in pH level even at the smallest process of the conjoining of an acid or base. Take note that if the pH is frequently dropping, inconstantly! This may result in broken metal equipment and accessories, engraving holes and discolorization of the swimming pool walls. It may also be harmful to swimmers as it may cause eyes and skin irritation.

If the Total alkalinity is very high, it would be intensely challenging to maintain the pH level. In this case, the pH is usually very high, and it makes the pool water cloudy. Scale build up on the walls of the pool will also be evident and the chlorine will become useless and will no longer sanitizing.
