If I add a ph reducer will it also lower my alkalinity levels? My Ph level is off the chart and the alkalinity levels are bang on.

No the ph reducer only goes after the ph not the alkalinity. I would only do a cap full at a time. A little goes a long ways.

I hope this helps you.

Good luck and please rate

Tip

Using a pH meter to care for your fish


pH values are the acidity of a body of water. Neutral water has a value of 7.0 meaning that it has equal amounts of hydrogen ions and hydroxide ions. When more hydrogen ions are added the water then the number goes down and the water becomes more acidic, or if the amount of hydroxide ions goes up then the water becomes more alkaline.

pH levels in your fish tank can prove to be fatal if they aren't monitored properly. While there is no secret formula for the perfect pH level for all fish it is best to keep all the fish from the same bodies of water together. Salt water fish shouldn't be put in a tank with freshwater fish because they need different pH levels.

Throughout the day the pH level of your fish tank will change although these slight changes shouldn't be too harmful on your fish sudden changes will prove to be fatal. When you are moving fish from one tank to another you want to make sure that the two waters have the same pH levels. When you want to buy a new fish check the pH level of your fish tank and then the pH level of the water at the pet shop to make sure that the levels are not too different.

You should be checking the pH levels of your fish tank at least once a month, but more often is always better. When you take the pH level you should write it down in a log book. You should try to take the pH level at the same time every time you take a reading because at different times of the day the levels would be different. Try to keep yourself from going crazy, if the pH level is a few decimals off of perfect your fish will be okay. If the level is fairly regular you shouldn't have to do anything unless your fish show signs of distress.

What pH levels are good for you?


The way that pH levels work is that a low number is bad, equal to 7 is neutral and more than 7 is good.

Help brown pool water, high iron content in well


your alkalinity is way too high. It shouldn't be above 7.8... 7.4 - 7.6 is ideal. I use muriatic acid to lower my ph. Also, your alkalinity is too high. should be between 80 and 120.
There is a sequestering agent you can use to try and drop the metals out of the water, if any are present. You stated you had high iron.
However, before tackling the iron, you need to get your ph under control. Chances are if you get your ph and alkalinity in line, your water will look a whole lot better.
If it is still cloudy, I would use a floc product.

Check the Ph levels - if it is way above 7 then it is too alkaline and it promotes algae growth. Add acid to bring the Ph level down to 7. Also after adjusting the Ph level then add anti-algae solution.
You can also add shock chlorine powder to the water to speed up the process.

Ger your calcium at 300 PPM even if you have a plastic pool. Then get the Alkalinity under control. You say it is off the chart ... but you Don't say if it is high off the chart of low off the chart. You will never get your pH proper until you get the alkalinity right. Sodium BiCarb to raise, muratic acid to lower. Goal is 100. When you get this number correct, you can adjust the pH. Don't try to correct this in a few hours ... go slow. Once the Alkalinity and pH is correct, introduce some dry chlorine ... shock the pool to about 20 ppm.

Is your salt around 3200 PPM? That is the goal for salt.

I hope this helps you with your pool.

How to fix ph and hardness in my above pool


Best Answer - Chosen by Asker First of all, I would NOT recommend you use muriatic acid as some people mention, unless your pH or alkalinity are extremely high. This is highly dangerous acid, and if you put in too much, then good luck getting your pH back up again.

You need to test your water with test strips, a droplet test, or bring it into your local pool store and they can test it for you. They should tell you at least your alkalinity, pH, and chlorine levels.

You want to make sure your alkalinity is balanced BEFORE you balance your pH. Alkalinity and pH are related - if your alkalinity is not stable (stable generally means it's between 80 and 120 parts per million or ppm), then your pH will be jumping up and down.

Once your alkalinity is between 80 and 120 ppm, then work on balancing your pH. As long as your pH is between 7.2 and 7.8, it is within a good range. If your pH is 7.8 or higher, you can buy pH decreaser or pH minus at the pool store. On the back of the container, it will tell you how many grams to put in, according to how many litres in your pool. If your pH is extremely high, like at least 8.5-9, then you could consider putting in muriatic acid.

If your pH is too low, you can buy pH increaser or pH plus and put that in your pool. Again, the container will have helpful instructions on the back of it. pH increaser is basically sodium bicarbonate (aka baking soda) so if you're hard up for cash, I've heard of some people just dumping baking soda in their pool. However, pH increaser is definitely better quality so I would recommend that first.

It's really that simple. If pH is above 7.8, dump in some pH decreaser. If it's below 7.2, dump in some pH increaser. You can buy them for under 10 bucks each at many pool stores.
