This is overkill, but you may try:

James F. Pankow: Aquatic Chemistry Concepts. Lewis Publishers, 
Chelsea, Michigan, 1991.

This is not at all a quick and easy reference, the information you seek 
can be dug out mainly from chapters 5 and 9. Note that KH doesn't 
exist in "real" chemistry, but it is the same thing as alkalinity, which 
does exist.
Why don't you talk with the local chemistry department at your
