Just for clarity, alkalinity measured in meq/l when multiplied by 50 gives alkalinity in mg/l as CaCO3.
As said, you then decide how much alkalinity you will retain to calculate the amount you wish to neutralise.
1 ml of CRS will neutralise 183mg of calcium carbonate, therefore multiplying the volume to be treated by the amount of alkalinity to eliminate divided by 183 estimates the amount in ml of CRS required.
