    Hi guys.

    Need some advice here please.

    Been checking my parameters and have noticed something with my PH.
    I have been using RO that I purchase to do top ups and water changes and have noticed now that my PH is stable but not at 8.3 or so. It is constant at 7.9 for over a month now. It worries me.

    Why is this?

    How can I safely increase it to get it to 8.2/8.3 region?

    I have changed test kits and used a digital PH meter and get the exact same reading of 7.9 continuasly

    Thanks
