Thread: Alkalinity test question.

    Alkalinity test question.

    Hello,
    I've been wondering if on the alkalinity test where it says add the titrant until it turns from green to red, if that means until its like a bright red or when it just doesn't look like green anymore.

    Thanks for many help, Whitehat

    You add drops until it stops changing colors. Then deduct one.

    For instance, say your TA is 100. At 8 drops it starts to turn grey. At 9, a tinge of pink, at 10 it's barbie pink. At 11, it's still barbie pink. The last drop did nothing, so 10 drops. TA= 100.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
