Jadenlea Posted November 21, 2015 Report Share Posted November 21, 2015 So for those who have been following my controsoil water having a PH of 7+ .... To catch you up... we thought perhaps it was the baking soda that I cycled with. (even though I feel I did not use to much) For the past few weeks Ive been trying to doctor the tank. Ive taken apart the canister filter twice and washed all the media in RO water. I even changed some media wondering if it could be the eheim media. Ive done several water changes. I have also added 2 large bags of Peat to the canister filter. Each time I did any kind of maintenance the PH went higher instead of lower topping out at 7.2. I had bought 2 bags of the controsoil so today I decided I was just going to start over. Went.. bought a new tank. Added the controsoil and RO water. Filter is NOT hooked up yet .. All that is in the tank now is Controsoil and Remin RO water and some plants that I washed in RO water. The tank is half full.... I thought to myself... Hmmmm let me test PH before I keep filling. RO water tests 5.8. (its been sitting a while) Water in tank. PH 7!!!!!!!!! I walked out in disgust and came to post this. I did not oxygenate the water first... I am hoping it has to do with that... but Im not very optomistic. Still no response to my emails from the company btw. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
