Lower Alkalinity AND Raise PH?
« on: May 19, 2019, 05:50:21 pm »
Anyone know how to accomplish this easily? My test strips are showing my Alkalinity is too high while also showing my PH is too low. If I use PH Up my Alkalinity will go even further. If I use PH down to drop the Alkalinity then my PH will drop even further. Wish there was a Alka Down product.

Typically they each pull on each other, so if your PH is low and ALK is high, over time they will pull each other and it should balance out one way or another.

Throw some lemon juice in and wait. Don't panic if your numbers aren't correct. Use the tub, pour in a cup of lemon juice and see what happens.
