Directions for lowering Total Alkalinity and pH

Pool water should be tested for its total alkalinity and pH using a kit. The ideal range for total alkalinity is based on the type of sanitizer used, such as those containing sodium hypochlorite, lithium hypochlorite (80-100 ppm), dichlor, trichlor and bromine tablets (100-120 ppm).

The ideal pH range for swimming water is between 7.4 and 7.6. Maintaining these ranges will help improve the performance of various types of disinfectants.

Always adjust the Total Alkalinity first

If the total Alkalinity of the water is over 140 ppm, it should be lowered. Using 2 pounds of Leslie's Dry Acid can help decrease it by about 10 ppm.
