Alkalinity Increaser raises the total alkalinity in swimming pools. Maintaining alkalinity levels is a critical component in keeping your water balanced. Lower levels cause pH levels to fluctuate. High levels can cause pH levels to oppose adjustment. Ideal alkalinity levels stay between 80 to 150 ppm.

PROTECTS pH LEVEL IN POOL

Balanced alkalinity levels help keep the pH level. An unlevel pH can cause the water to become too "hungry" and cause erosion of pool equipment, surface, etc. 

Add 1.5lbs to raise total alkalinity level 10ppm per 10,000 gallons of water.

Recommended level is between

80-120ppm.
