T.A Reducer- To Reduce total Alkalinity of Pool Water.

Dose Rate:

5 litres of Bartletts TA Reducer will reduce the Total Alkalinity of 10,000 gallons of pool water by approx. 30ppm. 


Switch off the circulating pump, calculate the quantity of Bartletts TA Reducer required. Deposit this quantity into one place, preferably at the deep end taking care not to spray or splash the solution over the pool surround. After one hour switch on circulation pump and allow pool water to mix thoroughly. Test pH and adjust to range 7.2-7.8. Re-test for Total Alkalinity and redose with Bartletts TA Reducer if required. Reccomended Total Alkalinity level 80-120ppm. If more than one dose is required always place in a different area of the pool. Always away from ladders, steps, lights and equiptment. 


If more than 4 x 5 litres of Bartletts TA Reducer per 10,000 gallons is required, then dose in stages.
