What is Alkalinity?

This is the sum of all alkaline chemicals in the water.  A measurement of all carbonates, bicarbonates, hydroxides and other alkaline substances.  It is closely related to pH and known as the buffering capacity of the water. A low alkalinity can cause the pH of the water to fluctuate widely and rapidly with small additions of acid or alkaline chemicals.
