Total Alkalinity (TA) is a measure of water’s resistance to changes in pH levels. A pool’s TA indicates the amount of alkali (not to be confused with alkaline) in the form of bicarbonates, carbonates, and hydroxides present in the pool water. A proper TA level helps to control pH bounce, staining of surfaces, and corrosion of pool equipment.

Automation takes the work out of pool and spa ownership by automating all work-intensive functions, such as sanitisation, balancing of pH, cleaning, and filtration. There are many systems available, some of which you can control from your phone.
