The acid capacity – also referred to as KS4.3, alkalinity-M, total alkalinity or hydrogen carbonate acid – describes the concentration of hydrogen carbonate ions (HCO3 –) dissolved in water. It influences the pH value and thus also the effectiveness of disinfectants or water care products. However, the acid capacity can also lead to material damage such as corrosion.
