The alkalinity levels recorded during the experiment ranged from 80.1-112.34 mg/L CaCO3. An increase in pH can occur in water with low alkalinity (20 to 50 mg L-1 CaCO3) in water with moderate to high alkalinity (75 to 200 mg L-1 CaCO3), or in water with alkalinity less than 25 mg L-1 (Boyd, 1979).
The recorded total hardness values ranged from 74.33 to 407.5 mg/L CaCO3 with the lowest value for the Laguindingan sample and highest for Libertad.
