OK I've got the specs on my (Cleveland, OH) water, but can't figure out which # to plug into the HCO3 slot:
Not sure what you mean by "plug into the HCO3 slot" but the relationship between alkalinity and bicarbonate ion concentration for pH < 8.3 is
[HCO3-] = 61*alkalinity/50
where [HCO3-] is the concentration of bicarbonate in mg/L (ppm) and alkalinity is the alkalinity expressed in ppm as CaCO3.
"plug into the HCO3 slot"
for example using this calculator:
According to your formula (since my pH is 7.4)
Yes. And you'll notice that if you put 95.16 into the HCO3- window the alkalinity window changes to 78.
Thanks for your help:mug:
Just found this thread randomly, and am curious what answer you were able to find. I live in South Euclid and am trying to build a water profile in Beer Smith. The figures that I found (from a book) are:
Not sure what to do about alkalinity and hardness and can't find anything on HCO3. Any ideas?
