No worries dude what level is your ph, a good water change will help if its way to high but let us know the number.

In the 9's somewhere.......HELP...........I'm sure this is causing the white spot amoung other things.
Is there nothing I can add to the tank in the form of chemicals that will lower this and prevent it in the future.

As per Mekaeel above. Plus, what is your alkalinity currently? And what brand are your test kits?

But most definately do a biggish water change. What salt are you using or are you using NSW?

Sounds like a faulty test kit to me. Take a sample of your water to your LFS to check before taking any drastic measures (although there is nothing wrong with doing a water change).

Is it a fish only setup or a reef that you have?

IF you REALLY have to bring you pH down, Dalton. You can always try adding very small amounts of white vinegar at a time (vinegar = (form of) acetic acid).... That is if your water changes is not assisting in your relieving problem....
