Water GH/PH/KH

My GH is better in my tap water then in my tank. I do weekly water change but it doesn't help! Every time i test my water my PH is low and my GH is hard...Im not interested on using chemicals unless i really have to... Its a planted tank and also have invertebrates... Any advice ? Or any idea on what could be causing it?


Thank you so much

GH is going up because of evaporation.
Kh could be getting converted by co2? (Taa daa, that's the pH problem too)

But, just a guess!

Like short circuit said, need more input Stephanie!
