      Asking your dealer what there ph is

      I've often asked my dealer what there ph level is at. I've been pretty close so havent worried about it. Makes me wonder though say your dealer has a lower ph then your then how will it react. Maybe baking soda can be added in anticipation of the new koi. Seems koi are sensitive to ph change

      After traveling in a bag at a minimum of 1 1/2 hours (my closest dealer) and more often a 2-6 hour
      plane trip, the pH is usually around 6 or less... so I've never noticed my new ones having any reaction
      to my pH being different. Seems kind of hard to avoid.

      Float the bag to adjust the temperatures.

      Repeat, I cup out! 1 cup in over the temperature adjusting time taken.

      The 1 cup out goes onto the grass.
