You need to be more specific about your problem.  You did not provide enough information for anyone to be able to help you.

Your ph is moving from what to what? 

You are using what food /additives? 

Are you using dwc or rdwc??  top feed?

do you have a water pump and air pump?

Do you have city water or well water? 
Whats the ph of the water you use? 

How old are your plants? 

what size are your plants?

How often do you check your ph?

how much are your plants drinking? 

How big is your rez? 

How often do you change the water and food?

Just transfered clones into soil.

This is just water. The pH of my tap water has been changing alot lately.
It can be anywhere from 7 to 10.

Need to keep it at 6 to 6.5.

After I ajust it starts going back up after 12 or so hours later.



Seemed like a straight forward question to me.

Well most people are asking in reference to hydro situations.


So are you letting it sit out to let the chlorine evaporate or something?  If so you should let it sit out, THEN adjust the pH before you water/feed.

Also temperature can affect what the pH is going to be.  If your water is coming out at 45 degrees and then raising up to room temp that can effect the pH reading as well.

Thanks Hawk.
Just thought pH, of water only, would stay ajusted longer.
Always ck pH before using water.

Well if you have temperature changes and chlorine evaporating from the water, it wouldn't surprise me to see it fluctuate.
