Total alkalinity is similar and correlated to cyanuric acid. It’s not as volatile as free chlorine or pH and doesn’t require frequent testing.
Swimming Pool alkalinity (often called total alkalinity) is a measurement of the concentration of alkaline materials in your pool. Alkaline materials stabilize pH but buffer chlorine sanitation.
Maintaining both pH and total alkalinity in your swimming pool is important for keeping your pool properly sanitized and non-corrosive. Total alkalinity is to pH what cyanuric acid is to free chlorine. Total alkalinity stabilizes pH levels. The ideal pool pH level is 7.4 to 7.6. The ideal total alkalinity level is 80 to 120 ppm.
