What is pH of source water?
I would suspect a low kH with your source water.
Lately every 5 days or so
pH is 6 for tap water
Water where I'm from is very soft.
I added a smidge of baking soda last night, and it took the pH immediately to 7. Checked it this morning, it's still at 7.
Could the low pH be related to the slight ammonia readings I've been getting lately, as I read a low (acidic) pH kills off your BB? :(
