on the part about your pH always being low, what kind of lights do you have in your house? I was having issues reading my test for the 3 between 7.8 & 8.3,as the colors are kinda the same, then I remembered that my energy saving lights put off a yellow cast so I went to the laundry room where I have a regular bulb & waaala I was stressing over nothing couldn't see the color right under the other lights.
