I tested the water the other day, Chlorine was good but it says to add soda ash, this is the first time it ever said to do this. What is Soda Ash? Or can I add PH to clear that up?


Soda ash is the active ingredient in most pH increaser chemicals. Soda ash is another name for sodium carbonate, likely to be the name listed on the chemical packaging. Either way, it is the most effective way to raise your ph when it is low.
