Total Alkalinity Balancers

Maintaining the Total Alkalinity within the correct range is the key to water balancing. If the TA is within an acceptable range the pH will be easy to balance and your sanitiser will work well.

Always balance the Total Alkalinity before the pH

Symptoms of High TA

  • pH adjustment will be extremely hard
  • Scale will form
  • Water may be cloudy
  • Skin and eye irritation may occur
  • Poor sanitizer function

Symptoms of Low TA

  • pH values will fluctuate widely
  • Water may be discoloured
  • Corrosion of your equipment may occur
  • Skin and eye irritation may occur
  • Poor sanitizer function

When raising or lowering the Total Alkalinity the pH of the water will also be affected so be sure to check the pH 24 hours after any alkalinity treatment.

NB TO REDUCE THE TA YOU USE A PH REDUCER
