HOW TO ADD: Add soda ash to a large amount of water and pour slowly around the pool. Retest after one hour.

WARNING: Always add chemical to water. Never add water to chemical. Do not mix with any other chemicals. Do not add more than one pound per 10,000 gallons at a time because soda ash is very concentrated and can cloud the pool water. All additions of chemicals are approximate and depend on local conditions.
