Re: conductivity= water quality explained

low buffering capacity (i.e. KH) doesn't necessarily give low pH. you still have to add acid. Buffering capacity just tells you how resistant your system is to fluctuations. low KH means highly sensitive to fluctuations or bounce unless you have some other buffering component in the water. If you run straight RO water, your water has no buffering capacity and is therefore very sensitive to pH fluctuations.
