This balancer increases the alkalinity of pool water to prevent the pH level from fluctuating.
Aids in preventing pH level from changing
Easily maintain the proper alkalinity level of 80-120 ppm
To Increase Total Alkalinity:
1. Determine the total alkalinity level.
2. If the value is below 75 ppm, add a sufficient amount of Alkalinity Up - by pouring it directly into the pool - to increase the total alkalinity to at least 75 ppm.
Alkalinity Up will provide approximately 10 ppm increase in total alkalinity for each 10,000 gallons of water. Wait at least 8 hours for the material to distribute uniformly before rechecking the alkalinity level.
Tips: When the pH value of the pool water fluctuates from low to high and back again in a short time, it is usually the result of a low total alkalinity condition of the pool water. Use GLB™ Test Strips to test pH and alkalinity.
Compatible With: Chlorine, bromine, ozone, salt water pools, and biguanide sanitizers.
