In an effort to bring down my TA, I lowered pH and then ran my spillover.
I believe that I ran the spillover for far too long, and drove my pH way up.
I am using the standard color block test (it's the only pH test I have or know about) and the color I get doesn't match anything.
It is coming out as a burnt orange/borderline reddish color.
Like I said, I'm fairly certain that my pH is too high, but I have added a good bit of acid and haven't seen much of a change. Not knowing what my pH is
has me groping in the dark somewhat.
Any suggestions on how long to let the water flow/mix after putting in acid before I test?
