Managing Total Alkalinity
The vast majority of alkalinity increasers are made from sodium bicarbonate which is a safe substance to store and use. Depending on the size of your pool you will need to carefully measure your alkalinity increaser in order to accurately and effectively increase pool alkalinity. Total Alkalinity measures all the hydroxides, carbonates and alkaline that is in your pool's water. Your Total Alkalinity or (TA) levels should be 80-120 ppm. Total Alkalinity strongly influences your pH level, so if your pH is off, be sure to check the alkalinity. Total Alkalinity strongly influences your pH levels, so if you notice the pH is off, be sure to check the alkalinity. When your alkalinity level drops below 80ppm, pH will begin to fluctuate dangerously causing water to become acidic and corrosive.

To prevent low pH problems from occurring, keep an eye on the pH level of your pool and, whenever it drops below 7.2, simply add a pH increaser to raise the pH level into the 7.4-7.6 range. In that case try In The Swim pH Increaser which will raise both your pH and Total Alkalinity.
