Parent Category: Baking
Baking soda (or sodium bicarbonate, or sodium hydrogen carbonate) is a chemical compound, its formula is NaHCO3. It is a white crystalline that appears to look like a fine powder. In baking, baking soda reacts with acids such as buttermilk or yogurt to produce carbon dioxide, forcing dough to rise. Other uses for baking soda include teeth whitening, body exfoliants, treating insect bites and cleaning tough stains. It is also used in some fire extinguishers as the carbon dioxide given off helps to suffocate fires.
You can (soda ash is used to adjust PH) but your pool supply store may have a cheaper alternative. I used "Alkalinity Increaser" for a year or two until I noticed that the sole ingredient is baking soda. I have heard since that the only difference is that the kind you buy in the grocery store i…

First of all be very careful. Baking soda is quite safe as long as you don't breathe it in. (No powder is good for your lungs). If it is soda ash, that's much more alkaline and should be handled with rubber qloves and kept away from your eyes. Baking soda can be used to increase your Total Alkalinit…

Baking soda actually raises the total alkalinity of your pool. This does also increase your pH, but should only be used if your test kit shows low alkalinity. Otherwise you'll raise both pH and alkalinity and then have to use alkalinity down. Borax will raise PH and not alkalinity, but it raises it…
