I know you're doing a tremendous amount of work..scanning evrthing, etc. .what I really meant by yelling out to you, was just to let you know there was a request for FAQ information. This is one of the areas every person new to this forum ( and ph balancing!) really needs to fully apreciate. So often we think the ph is good when it's not, and even vice versa owing to not seeing how a minute change is really a BIG change. I was just trying to save myself the work of posting also to your thread asking for ideas is all.
