the packaging on this says add a bag (1kg) and retest after 24 hours
i reckon i need about 3 bags to get my alkalinity right. can i just go ahead and dump 3 bags in in one go?
what could go wrong?
Baking soda isn't really that much cheaper? Also Alkalinity up won't affect the PH that much even 3 bags. To up PH you need soda ashNot 3KG in one go, it will destroy the PH.
Our pool is crystal clear at the moment, we use HTH Clear 4 weeks, some HTH chlorine maybe 3 cups over a week, HTH floater and to really make it clear 1 bottle of HTH Duo Ultra clear.
We bought a 5KG bucket of baking soda which is HTH Alkalinity up but far cheaper.
Nope it will only increase the TA of the pool, not really the pH that much. Sodium Bicarb acts differently to Sodium Carbonate. That's why you have different products, to get the pH to go up you'll have to use a ton of Alkalinity up.Alkalinity up will increase the pH to the correct levels.
