Nathan,

There are several different units of measuring alkalinity. Some test kits give only one unit and some show them all. There are tables,Google 'alkalinity' and you can cross reference fron one unit of measurement to another.

The two common units of measurement of Alkalinity are:
dKH=Degree (Karbonate) Carbonic Hardness (German)
meq/L= milliequivalents per liter

Kh is not really a form of measurement. It simply means Carbonic Hardness but does not indicate which unit of measurement is being used.

This.^^^ kH is a basically another name for alkalinity and dkH is the unit that you measure it in.

The analogy would be kH is to temperature as dkH is to degrees farenheit.
