We just got a 10' x 30" above ground easy set pool. We added chlorine and sodium bicarbonate then tested the water with the 2 in 1 test kit (The one with the red drops) the results were CL 1.5, BR 3.4, pH 6.8.

How much more sodium bicarbonate do I need to add to increase the pH from 6.8 to 7.6. The pool is 3853L (1018 Gallons)

Welcome to the forum!

Splash around in the water a bit. That will raise your pH. Baking soda raises TA. you cannot test that with your kit.

Go to Pool School and read up on Temporary/Seasonal pools.
