Alkalinity Low and pH High a never ending story?

Postby fets » Sun 26 Jun, 2011 01:51

Hello,
i'm trying to rise the alkalinity (today reading Low) in my pool with Sodium Bicarbonate 100%.
when i do so, my pH go's up to, to 7.64, then i add Pool Acid and the pH go's down.
But my Alkalinity to.
it's like a game, I'm not able to rise the Alkalinity as Pool Acid remove the Alkalinity.

any idea, how i could rise my Alkalinity?
best regards
fets

Remember when balancing your pool always alkalinity first, ph second and cl2 last.....At first glance your ph at 7.64 is almost perfect already........
