Tendency for the alkalinity to be too low

  • The local feed water is low in bicarbonates so that whenever the pool is topped up from the mains, it dilutes the bicarbonates in the pool. This is a particular problem in soft water areas.
  • Add sodium bicarbonate to raise the total alkalinity to around 100ppm.
