Thanks for the info. I am working with 1000 gal so my quanities are alot higher. My PH is around 7.4 right now. I just like the concept of all natural control. I am going to try the Peat for the remainder of the drop to 7.0

Hello folks. Nice start. Like you I am starting my cycle. My ph is also high at 8.2 I have been lowering it with muratic acid. How much peat did you use for your system if I can ask. Thank you Dave.
