Can anyone give me some insight into why the solution in my ez clone starts turning acidic after two days? Thanks for any help.

I have an EZ-Clone also and my pH actually tends to drift the other way. I have to add about 1 ml of pH down per gallon of water. I imagine the local water is what makes our situations different. I use tap water that has sat out for 24 hours and then I adjust the pH down from about 7.5 to 6.
I have notice that temperature fluctuations can cause inaccurate pH readings so it may also change the solution.
Are your temperatures staying stable or do they rise as the pH lowers?
I only use a generic cloning gel and pH down, nothing else and get good results as long as everything has been sterilized.
In the end you may just have to adjust your pH every couple days.
Good luck.
