If your pH or Total Alkalinity levels are off in your pool’s water chemistry, our Soda Ash is a quick, safe, and effective way to correct both. Made of 100% sodium carbonate, this is the easiest way to balance your chemicals and make your pool a safer, cleaner environment. This powerful formula is the most concentrated pH and Total Alkalinity increaser you can find. It dissolves quickly in it’s granular form and goes to work immediately. Correcting these chemical levels will help you avoid corrosion, stains, and irritation to swimmers.
The ideal ranges for any swimming pool should be between 7.4 and 7.6 for pH, and between 80 and 140 ppm for Total Alkalinity. When pH levels are too low, this means the water has become overly acidic. Too much acid can cause things like corrosion of pipes and pool fixtures, plaster stains or etching, and eye, nose, and skin irritation for swimmers. Total Alkalinity is necessary to keep your pH levels balanced, and low Total Alkalinity can also cause damage to pools and irritation for swimmers. Our Soda Ash quickly raises both pH and Total Alkalinity levels to more acceptable ranges with ease. Just add 1lb of Soda Ash for every 10,000 gallons in your swimming pool.
