  • How to use Buffers?

    Hi,

    My tap water have PH 7+ an KH 2. I buyed acid buffer and alkaline buffer, by instructions, my KH target was 6.

    After use both buffers in 53 liters of water, my KH only is 3.

    Why? I used about 8.3gr of alkaline and 4.1gr of acid buffer.

    From what I understand, you don't need the acid buffer of you're increasing your KH, but let's wait for the experts to explain it further.

      Hello Duz1nho,

      Acid Buffer is used together with Alkaline Buffer to create a known and calibrated KH via Acid Buffer breaking down some of the carbonates in solution. If you're wanting to increase KH specifically, I'd recommend using Alkaline Buffer by itself.

      Kind regards,
      PE
