I have been using Pro Buffer dKH for months. When I first stared using this product I would add it to the aquarium as directed on the bottle. I then got in the habit of adding it to my water change water only. I do weekly water changes with Instant Ocean Reef Crystals and I use RO/DI water. Before I started using this product my Alk was consistently low (around 7). When I started using Pro Buffer dKH in my water change water my Alk would stay around 8 to 9.
The claim that this product maintains Ph at 8.3 is a little weird to me because the Ph in a reef tank naturally fluctuates with the time of day. Other than this, the claims this product makes are accurate and I am happy with it. I have a variety of corals in my tank and they are all flourishing, this product is the only additive I use in my water.

Pretty good Buffer
Just make sure if your PH drops to test for Alkalinity first. If this is low the dkh will bring the PH up to the appropriate level!
If Alkalinity is good-Then test for Magnesium/if this is low your calcium will be low also!
""This dkh will not bring your ph up if you are low on Magnesium it will just keep raising your Alkalinity-so be careful on this!""
If you are low on Magnesium you will need to add a magnesium supplement as instructions tell you until you get appropriate magnesium level-when you do your calcium might need to be supplemented as well to get correct level!
Now your PH should be pretty good!!

I have three heavily stocked and long standing reef tanks that can have a large drop in carbonate levels over a few days. Daily use of this product keeps the dKH between 9and 11. It works well in its intended role, just seems a bit expensive for some sodium carbonate and bicarbonate.
