Alkalinity Increaser

Total alkalinity is closely associated with pH but rather than a measure of hydrogen ion concentration it is a measure of the ability of a solution to neutralize hydrogen ions. Total alkalinity is a measure of water's resistance to change in pH.

Alkalinity Increaser is used to control the Total Alkalinity in your pool. If the Total Alkalinity in your pool is in the correct range, pH control is easier. We recommend that you adjust the Total Alkalinity before adjusting the pH, for the simple reason if Total Alkalinity is too low pH will not stay in the correct range and if too high pH can become fixed and can lead to scaling.
