Yes you can. It would be cheaper to go to the pool store and get sodium bicarb (same

thing)

Sodium bicarb. works great.

Having a properly balanced pool is not difficult, but it does take work.

I'm the pool operator at our local YMCA and keeping an 80,000 gallon pool balanced is pretty easy, once you all the elements in place

and know what you're doing.

Chlorine 3.5-4.5, alkalinity 80-100, pH 7.6-7.8, not 7.2, hardness 150-250, not up to 400.

You have to stay on top of it because the chlorine can go down in a matter of hours if no one properly checks it.

Just be sure your getting the right info. The index most pool operators use comes from public water systems, not from pools.

Also, be sure the public pool you attend follows the proper procedures for pool closures and decontamination.

I know of a few that just scoop out what they can, check the chlorine, and call it good.

Can you substitute baking soda for pot ash in a swimming pool?

Baking Soda (sodium bicarbonate) is used to slightly raise pH but more often to raise alkalinity. Ideal range is between 80-120. Baking soda will only raise the pH so much. Dense soda ash raises pH only and is more "powerful" and is used to raise pH when alkalinity is at a correct level. In otherwords. Balance alkalinity first then if pH is still low raise it with Soda Ash.
