Neither. Baking soda raises the Total Alkalinity. Soda ash raises the pH.
Baking soda raises the ph in a pool.
Besides baking, it is a great way to raise the Ph in your swimming pool.
raising the pH level of the swimming poolThe recommended pH-range for a swimming pool is between 7.2 and 7.8. To raise or lower pH, alkali such as sodium carbonate (soda ash) or sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) will added to the water. thanks hope it helps you heaps!!
Baking soda will almost certainly raise the pH level in a pool.
No it will raise the pH level. You would use it if your pool was too acidic.
Yes, I have done so without problems.
The only way to lower your cya level in your swimming pool is to partially drain your pool and fill with fresh water that will lower it or if you want to lower it to almost nothing completely drain your pool and start over but keep in mind chlorine tablets will raise your CYA level More information in the related link below.
Bicarbonate will RAISE the pH and total alkalinity.
not alot and I don't even know how much because someone else does it for me
The best way to raise the pH in a swimming pool is by adding a base to it. Chlorine is an excellent choice.
Acid lowers the PH number. You want the pH to be between 7.0 and 7.4. To raise the ph you can use baking soda.
The recommended pH for pools is 7.2 - 7.8. Sodium bicarbonate or soda ash will raise the pH. Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) will raise the Total Alkalinity. Soda ash (sodium carbonate) will raise the pH. They are not interchangeable.
Here are a few suggestions out of the many possible answers to this question. Raise the air temperature in the room Raise the humidity in the air in the room Lower the water temperature in the pool Cover the pool
To raise 6.8ppm in a 10,000 gallon pool, you would need to add approximately .84 pounds of baking soda.

Hummm, just how do you "raise" a pool by going from 8' to 5' ???
Baking powder is used to raise the alkalinity of the pool. The amount to used depends on how acid the pH of the pool is before you start.
Baking soda will not soften (remove calcium hardness) from pool water. It will raise total alkalinity.
Rain if it is acidic can lower the pH of a swimming pool.
NO. You want sodium bicarbonate (baking SODA)
take out the phosphates!
By adding muriatic acid
You use muriatic acid.
Soda ash or borax or whatever chemical your local pool store sells
100,000 gallon swimming pool requires 50 pounds of baking soda to maintain ph. what will be the initial molarity of baking soda in the pool water?
Can't beat baking soda!
