Why To Not Test Alkalinity In A Pool

Why to not test alkalinity in a pool:

ECOsmarte converts the alkalinity to bicarbonate which will trick the test kit, therefore, alkalinity can’t be measured accurately.

The only 4 things that need to be tested in an ECOsmarte pool are: 

  • pH    6.6 - 7.0 
  • Copper  .4 ppm - .7 ppm
  • Calcium  400+ ppm 300 ppm minimum)
  • Phosphates.0 ppm (under 100 ppm)
