    Default Alkalinity test...

    My Lamotte Alkalinity test kit measures in ppm. My current reading is about 150 ppm. Is there a way to convert this to dkh? At 150 ppm I have nothing to compare this to.

    To convert to meq/L you can multiply by .02,I'm not exactly sure how acurate the conversion is,thats just what i came up with.That would put you at 3meq/L which is around 8dKh i think.Here's the link to a calc that should help you.

    Looks like something else to find the exact formula for and add to my list of mathmatical calculations to be added.
    Every electronic device is manufactured with smoke stored deep inside... only a true genius can find a way to set it free.
