Thread: Hight TA and low ph

    Hight TA and low ph

    Kinda confused on the best way to raise my ph without raising my TA. I believe you suggested to use borax instead of baking soda as it has a lesser affect on the TA. Am I on the right track. Thanks.

    Lastest test is: ph:6.8 and TA:140

    The best way is to aerate the water. Aim your returns at the surface, have a bunch of kids over. Anything to churn the surface of the water.

    That will also raise the ph?

    Aeration raises the pH without affecting your TA.
