Seachem Alkaline Buffer - Raises pH
- Adjusts pH to 7.2—8.5
- Designed for use in planted aquariums
- Increases alkalinity
- Contains no phosphate
To increase pH, use 1 teaspoon (6 g) for every 80 L (20 US gallons) daily until desired pH is reached (this dose raises alkalinity by about 1 meq/L (2.8 dKH)).
In order to adjust pH gradually, use Alkaline Buffer™ with Acid Buffer™. When using Alkaline Buffer™ & Acid Buffer™ together to target a specific pH, utilize the suggested ratio chart.
HINT: First determine the amount of Alkaline Buffer™ needed for the volume of water. This should be determined based upon your desired alkalinity (KH). Then, divide by the number in the middle column to obtain the correct amount of Acid Buffer™ required.
This chart is based on use in RO or RO/DI water and ratios may need to be adjusted for use in tap water.
