10 Gallon Scape

The relationship between pH and CO2 content is logarithmic not direct. One iteration of the calculation from which the CO2 tables are derived is CO2(in ppm)= 3*dkH*10^(7-pH). ...

As someone's already pointed out, it's not going to work as a preservative unless it incorporates some level of toxicity. All about dosage.
