    Alkalinity and pH

    I have a reading of:
    PH- 7.5
    Chlorine- 2
    Alkalinity- 40
    Calcium- 200

    I would like to raise my alkalinity to 100 but I don't want my ph to raise also...
    If I put in 3 lbs of bi- carbonate then my ph will be out of range.
    1500 gallons.
    Pentair brominator feeder using bromine.
    Calcium chloride.

    Raise TA to 60 with baking soda. 100 is too high.
