Chad Posted August 26, 2021 Share Posted August 26, 2021 I'm scratching my head trying to understand how ph works. I've attached a pic of what I'm seeing in my water testing. Number 1 is a ph test straight from my tap. It's high, looks like 8.4. My 2nd and 3rd test are from my aquarium. The high ph test seems off the charts low, while the regular ph test seems off the charts high. What does this mean exactly? I figured the tests showed that my ph in the tank is somewhere between 7.4 and 7.6. But since they're at both ends of their respective testing spectrum I'm unsure. I also tested water that's been sitting for 24 hours and got the exact same readings as #'s 2 and 3. I've tested gh (8-10 degrees) and kh (5-6 degrees) in the past and they always show hard, but not crazy hard, water. Any insights you might have are greatly appreciated. It's been like this for some time, finally got around to fully testing my AQ and sitting water at the same time. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
