Each Discounter’s Pool & Spa Warehouse location offers free in-store water analysis. All you need to do is bring in sample of pool water. A trained Discounter’s Pool & Spa Warehouse expert will test the water and provide recommendations to balance your chemical levels.
11. Adjust The Total Alkalinity
|If pH reading is||7.2-7.6||7.7-8.0||8.1-8.4||Above 8.4|
|Add pH Decrease for each 10,000L||Acceptable Range||75 g||125 g||150 g|
If the Total Alkalinity of your pool is too low, it will increase by using Omni Alkalinity Increaser.
|Total Alkalinity||Dosage Per 10,000 L|
|0-20 ppm||1.8 kg|
|20-40 ppm||1.5 kg|
|40-60 ppm||1.1 kg|
|60-80 ppm||0.7 kg|
|80-99 ppm||0.4 kg|
12. Now, It's Time To Adjust The pH Balance
If your pH level is above 7.6, you can add Omni pH Decreaser. Wait 2 hours with the circulation system running and retest before adding more acid.
If your pH level is below 7.4, use Omni pH Increaser. To raise pH, add 100 g of Omni pH Increaser per 10,000 L of pool water. Wait 4 hours with the circulation system running and retest the water.
