Hi, I'm using the WATEQ database in PHREEQC and alkalinity is one of the parameters I wish to enter to perform a speciation calculation. I have measured alkalinity in my water as mg/L CaCO3. Do I just enter this number in the alkalinity space, or do I have to somehow specify alkalinity as mg/L CaCO3 somewhere in the program? Thanks Vicky Peacey
