Raising or lowering the alkalinity of a pool should always encompass small incremental steps rather than one large adjustment. The amount of alkalinity needed to maintain a pool depends on the pool’s capacity. It could range from two or three pounds in smaller pools, to sixty or seventy pounds in larger pools.

Over the course of the season Bromine use can also reduce the alkalinity level of the pool.
