Went to the swimming pool store and also they indicated i essential to add 9lbs of baking soda. I was told the 1 lb is same to 2 cups, for this reason i started by adding 6 cups which have to be 3 lbs (per more instruction to break into 3 incremental doses). Ns am now thinking that the cup felt pretty heavy and am wondering if 2 cups is certainly 1 lb? i am fearful that I offered too much and also will overshoot which i am currently reading would be an issue. TIA!

Re: load of baking soda


I"ve never measured it by the cup, but being familiar with the size of the 1lb boxes the I usage for my swimming pool I"d to speak 1 cup is = 1lb. Don"t worry about overshooing unless you acquire a reading above 200ppm.

The thickness of powdered baking soda (tapped in the cup) is around 1.2 g/ml (solid sodium bicarbonate is 2.2 g/ml). This means that 1 cup is 10 ounces and 1 lb is 1.6 cups. So girlfriend are appropriate that the felt heavier 보다 they indicated.
