I had to add a CO2 scrubber to my system due to so much build up in the house with my wife and kids. Since this whole QT thing has started, I have had to swap out my media every two weeks. A scrubber is a good way to help that issue if you do not want to use KALK. My PH was not as low as yours though.

One thing that helped me was to run the calcium reactor effluent into a capped 2" PVC pipe with small holes drilled in the cap. The pipe is submerged in the tank or sump with the cap at the bottom. I put an airstone in the pipe and adjusted the airflow until the PH inside the pipe rose to 7.6.
 

The worst paradigm to hit the hobby is getting your nutrient levels as low as possible?
