hth® alkalinity up pods, 1.82kg

  • Keeps pH levels in range
  • Compatible with salt water pools

Balancing your pool water is even easier with the NEW! hth® Pre-measured Water Soluble Pods.  These easy-to-use pods make dosing simple and quick.    To keep your pool water comfortable for bathers and to protect pool surfaces and equipment from damage, the pH of pool water should be maintained between 7.2 and 7.8.  Help reduce pH drift and erratic changes when adjusting the pH by testing the total alkalinity each week and maintaining it between 60 and 120ppm.

For Best Results: Keep the total alkalinity at 60-120 parts per million (ppm).
1. Use a reliable test kit to measure the total alkalinity concentration of your pool water.
2. Be sure that the skimmer is empty and does not contain any chemical residue or debris.
3. If the alkalinity is below 60 parts per million (ppm), add the amount of product as directed on the chart below.

Skimmer Application – Add 1 pod directly into the pool skimmer while the pump is running. Allow the pod to dissolve before adding additional pods or other pool products. Only add 1 pod at a time.

Pool Application – Add appropriate number of pods to the deep end of the pool with the circulation system on. Disperse any undissolved chemical from the bottom of the pool with a pool brush until the chemical is completely dissolved. If multiple pods are added at one time, they should be distributed around the deep end and should not be concentrated in one place. Use the chart to determine the correct amount of this product to use.


Testing and Balancing

Test Your Water

How often you should test and balance your pool water can vary based on how often you use it and a number of other variables; but it’s important to remember that for chlorine and pH, you should usually test your pool two to three times a week. That may sound like a lot, but water balance is vital for your pool’s health and the health of the people who swim in it. When your pool water is out of balance, your sanitizers can be less effective, the water can cause irritation to the skin and eyes, and if the water gets imbalanced enough, it can even damage the pool’s surfaces, structure, or equipment.

Shock Weekly

In ideal circumstances, shock treating your pool just once a week will keep it looking clean and clear; but any heavy rainfall, signs of algae, use by lots of swimmers, or periods of very sunny weather can deplete free chlorine levels, which means an extra dose of hth® Shock is needed. Sundown is the optimum time to shock your pool because the chlorine can work without fighting the sun's ultraviolet rays and has more time to restore water clarity.
