How to raise KH level only

I do a water change every week 25%. The GH - KG - & GH level are usually OK. For the last 2 weeks the PH level is 7.5 good the GH level is 100 OK the KH level was 70 last week so I added ľ tsp acid and ľ tsp alkaline buffer, the KH level dropped to 60.How do I raise the KH without raising the PH.
I have guppies and neon tetra's.

Honestly I wouldnít worry too much for either of those. Itís pretty hard to raise kh only - looking back on notes.

Hmmm, potassium carbonate maybe but never tried it / not sure on chemistry.
