    aa metal and ph

    the AA treatment says to keep the ph at 7.2 for about 2 weeks
    but using the proteam metal magic says to start with your ph at 7.5

    Lower PH levels, around 7.0 to 7.2 are safer, in the sense that stains are more likely to lift off and less likely to reappear. Higher PH levels, i.e. around 7.5, increase the odds that the metals plus sequestrant will clump up and be filtered out.
