Maintaining conditioned water.

Hi, How much sodium bicarbonate are you using? We have a conductivity of
530  uS and a pH of 7.5, using house distilled water, Instant Ocean
(144mg/L),  Sodium bicarbonate (75 mg/L) and Calcium chloride (40 mg/L)
final  concentration. You probably need to add more sodium bicarbonate to
bring up  the pH. Hope this helps. Cheers, Jane Cox, St. Louis University

> Hello everyone. I'm having trouble maintaining the pH and conductivity
of our system water. We are trying to achieve a pH of 6.8-7.5 as well as
a conductivity of 200 - 400 uS. However, the pH is approaching below 6.6
and whenever we add Neutral Regulator by Seachem to correct the pH the
conductivity goes up, and it is now at 900uS. Would anyone have any
suggestions on how to correct this problem.
