When I tested my water with a calibrated ph meter it came out as 7.2–7.4 depending on if it’s sat. 

I had previously tested it & it was 6.5 however looking back the pen might not have been calibrated right.

I’ve 3/4 of ph down left & clumsy shaky hands I was thinking Dolomite lime anything I should know about Dolomite lime before I go buy it or am I better with ph down & a ph of 6.5 in soil than the neutral 7.0 Dolomite lime would give in soil.

Take it not to overuse it.

lernt to ask after my de experience.

Hey mate, dolomite lime is better used as a soil amendment to adjust the PH. Most PH down if not all is a citric acid based thing so a drop of lemon juice will do the trick if you run out of the store bought stuff, Dolomite lime will do the opposite and neutralize acidity.

I didn’t fully understand Dolomite lime hence worth asking.

I had a load of citric acid from my distillery days I just threw away as it’s out of date.

cheers bud it’s not that hard just a pita 😆
