Total alkalinity is a measure of the total alkaline substances found in the pool water. For swimming pool purposes we usually determine the carbonate content of the water by measuring the level of calcium carbonate. Total Alkalinity, or TA, should usually be kept at 80 - 120 ppm, though in high alkalinity waters this is often hard to achieve without resulting in an abnormally low pH. High Total Alkalinity The results of high TA may be one or more of the following: pH keeps going up despite regular addition of pH Minus, cloudy water, burning eyes and itchy skin or reduced chlorine efficiency resulting in algae growth.
