If you lower the KH by dilluting with RO, the pH will come down. Take a sample and test it out to get the proper ratio of current tank to RO, and ultimately tap to RO for change water. Cheapest and easiest way, I think.

I use discus buffer, works great.. My water out of the tap is 8.2 and it takes it down to about 6.5 for my RAMS.
