    Alkalinity Conversion Chart

    Last weekend I did some water testing and had to break out the calculator for meq/l to dKH Alkalinity conversion. To do this we multiply the meq/l reading by 2.8 to convert to dKH (multiply by 50 to convert meq/l to ppm CaCo3). Usually I cheat and just round up to the 3 for simple […]

    Last weekend I did some water testing and had to break out the calculator for meq/l to dKH Alkalinity conversion. To do this we multiply the meq/l reading by 2.8 to convert to dKH (multiply by 50 to convert meq/l to ppm CaCo3). Usually I cheat and just round up to the 3 for simple mental math, but this time I wanted a bit more accuracy.

    Rather then doing that again I threw together this simple conversion chart showing equivalent dKH, meq/l and ppm CaCO3 measurements. Enjoy.

I currently have a Red Sea alkalinity test kit and it gives its results in milliequivalent per liter and not ppm which seems to be more common. Alkalinity Conversion Chart […]
