I am trying to clear my algae problem but from the instructions here at TFP I have to get my pH in range (7.2-7.6) I am currently at least at 8.2
I get 8.2+ from the Taylor Kit and 8.4+ from strips
However using Sodium Bisulfate doesn't seem to be doing the trick. One of the problems being I can only run my filter about 5 minutes before I need to regenerate. I've backflushed and cleaned, but then I only see a slight improvement (9 minutes) for a free cycles.
What I am I doing wrong here?
My hardness is 100
