Chemical Tip from The Pool Man, Your Houston and Tomball Pool Builder

What is Total Alkalinity (TA)? It’s the amount of alkaline components in the water. TA acts as a buffer against rapid PH fluctuation. PH can be affected by environmental factors such as acid rain, pollution, run-off from the surrounding land and fertilizers – just to name a few. Keeping the TA at the proper range will help prevent PH bounce if it is too low and help prevent scale from forming if it is too high.  The ideal range is 80 – 120 parts per million.  Contact our Service Department if you are having problems. Remember – Keep It Simple!
