Pool Alkalinity can slowly reduce over time. Keep your pool water balanced by using alkalinity increaser, aka alkalinity up. Carbonate blend raises alkalinity with less effect on pool pH. Alkalinity Plus products have the unfortunate effect of also raising pH somewhat, while trying to increase alkalinity. Add pool alkalinity chemicals slowly into the deep end; 1.5lbs of our Alkalinity Increaser will raise pool alkalinity by 10 ppm, for every 10000 gallons of pool water.

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.

    Makes your pH and chlorine levels easier to control!

    The pH of your pool is an important measure as it determines the alkalinity or acidity of your pool. Striking the proper pH balance in your pool water is critical for safe and enjoyable swimming which is why many pool owners may find the need to use an alkalinity increaser from time to time. Generally speaking, you’ll need to increase pool alkalinity whenever the pH drops below 7.4 or when alkalinity levels drop below 80ppm. Ideally, you’ll always want alkalinity to range between 80 and 120 ppm and should you dip below this you’ll need to use a pool alkalinity increaser.

    • Use when total alkalinity drops below 80 ppm.
    • Makes your pH and chlorine levels easier to control.
    • Granular Sodium Bicarbonate.
    • Dosage: 1½pounds per 10,000 gallons will raise the alkalinity level approximately 10 ppm.
    • Spa Dosage:1-2 oz. per 500 gallons.
