The alkalinity of a body of water indicates its susceptibility to changes in pH. When a strong acid or base is introduced to the system, a body with a low alkalinity will see its pH change dramatically, while a high alkalinity bodyâ€™s pH will change very little. This kit has been designed to allow the analyst to perform a very simple titration to determine the alkalinity of their fresh water sample. This kit allows the analyst to determine both the phenolphthalein as well as the total alkalinity. The titration uses an easily identifiable color transition to indicate the end of the analysis. The kit contains everything an analyst would need to perform a water analysis either in the laboratory setting or out in the field. Kit contains enough materials to perform 40 tests.
