The ability or capacity of the water to resist change in pH; also known as the buffering capacity of the water. The sum of the bicarbonates, carbonates and hydroxides in the water expressed as ppm of calcium carbonate.
The alkalinity of a water a determined by titration with standard acid solution to the methyl orange endpoint (pH approximately 4.5); sometimes abbreviated as "M alkalinity". Total alkalinity includes many alkalinity components, such as hydroxides, carbonates, and bicarbonates.
The ability or capacity of water to resist change in pH; also known as the buffering capacity of water. Measured with a test kit and expressed as ppm.
The ability or capacity of water to resist change in pH. A quantitative measurement of the amount of alkaline in water. Measured with a test kit and expressed as ppm.
A measure of the titratable bases, primarily carbonate, bicarbonate, and hydroxide.
a measurement of the ability of the water to resist changes in pH. Water with a TA of 80-120 PPM is sufficiently buffered, so as to resist rapid changes in pH. This makes pH management easier. Additions of sodium bicarbonate are used to raise the total alkalinity: 1.5 pounds will raise the TA, of 10,000 gallons, by approximately 10 PPM. High TA can be lowered by the addition of muriatic acid or dry acid (sodium bisulfate).
The number of carbonates, bicarbonates, and hydroxides, measures in ppm that are present in pool water.
This helps the water resist changes in pH.
The amount of bicarbonates, carbonates and hydroxides in the swimming pool water. TA effects and controls the pH. If the TA is too high, the pH is difficult to adjust with possible cloudy water and scale formation. If the TA is too low, the pH will be unstable and difficult to maintain with the desired range: corrosion can also result.
The number of carbonates, bicarbonates, and hydroxides, measured on p.p.m., that are present in pool water.
A measure of certain alkaline minerals. Aids in preventing fluctuations in pH.
Alkalinity is a measure of the water's buffering capacity or ability to resist changes in pH. The proper alkalinity range for spa water is 125-150 parts per million (ppm).
The measure of the actual amount of alkali in a given volume of water.
The amount of alkaline chemicals in water determines its resistance to change in pH. High total alkalinity causes scale, poor chlorine performance and irritated eyes. Low total alkalinity causes metal corrosion, plaster etching and irritated eyes.
Is a measure of the ph-buffering capacity of water. It tells us the water's resistance to change of ph. This is one of the basic water tests necessary to determine if the water is in balance.
The amount of certain alkaline minerals in the water. Buffers to prevent pH fluctuations in pool or spa water. Ideal range for PristineBlue® (30 to 90 ppm)
The total amount of alkaline materials present in the water. Also called the buffering capacity of the water. It is the water's resistance to change in pH. Low total alkalinity causes metal corrosion, plaster etching and eye irritation. High total alkalinity causes scale formation, poor chlorine efficiency and eye irritation. The test measures for hydroxides, carbonates and bicarbonates.
A measurement of carbonates in water, which stabilize pH against rapid change. TA readings should be kept 80-120 ppm.
The ability of the pool water to resist changes in pH. The "buffering" capacity of the water. Additions of Sodium Bicarbonate will increase the levels, expressed in ppm.
(TA) - a measure of the pool water's ability to prevent pH "bounce" or fluctuation. TA measures the amount of carbonates, bicarbonates, hydroxides, and borates in the water.
Works in a buffering capacity, protecting the water from dramatic pH changes. The ideal range is from 80 to 140 ppm in pools and 80 to 120 ppm in spas.
The total amount of alkaline materials present in the water, usually measured as carbonate alkalinity. It indicates the water's resistance to change in pH. Low total alkalinity causes pH bounce. High total alkalinity causes the pH to constantly rise.
A measure of alkaline minerals in the pool water. The correct level prevents pH fluctuations.
Acts as a buffer to pre-vent changes in pH.
A measure of the total alkaline substances dissolved in the water. If it is too high, pH resists adjustment; too low, pH tends to bounce (very erratically).
