Everywhere is written that the most important thing is to balance the water and said the alkalinity should be between 80-120 ppm.
All the tester i saw measure the chlorine ( from 0.5 - 3.00 )the ideal is the 1.00 and the ph ( from 6.8 - 8.2 )the ideal is between 7.2 - 7.6 . If is less than 7.2 we ad soda and if is less more than 7.6 we add acid. Correct ???????
It is possible to measure the alkalinity with this tester or there is an other tester for alkalinity ?

Yeah you can measure the pool's alkalinity using the pool volume calculator. You can search this in the net. Good luck...
