Alkalinity Plus or Sodium Bicarbonate for Spa and Pool
We understand the importance of the pH levels being just right in your hot tub. Therefore, you will find several different water balancing and pH level related products. The one that is available on this page though is Total Alkalinity Increaser.
This functions as a buffer for the water's pH levels and enables you to control the levels better. Therefore, you should always give attention to the spa alkalinity before you start looking at the pH balancer levels.
Ideally, your hot tub should have an alkalinity value of around 80 to 120 parts per million ppm.
Using a standard 3in1 or 6in1 test strips will help you to understand your current water levels.
Anything that is a high alkalinity or low alkalinity value will mean that it will be harder to get the pH levels right.
As the total alkalinity of the hot tub water can change as you try to adjust your pH levels,
Therefore it is best to check the total alkalinity first and use a TA Raiser when needed
At SpaChem ™ we have an excellent Total Alkalinity enhancer known as Spa Total Alkalinity Plus or sodium bicarbonate which will increase the total TA in your spa or swimming pool water. Our product is high grade and is very easy to use and extremely effective in bringing TA levels in your pool or spa to the correct range.
It's also worth noting when adjusting your alkaline levels this can lead to slightly elevated pH scale, so bare this in mind when you go to see if you need a pH increaser.
