The best KH is what the tap water has. That makes keeping it relatively constant easy. If the KH is above 1 it is enough to buffer the pH from CO2 induced changes - the pH still changes with the amount of CO2 in the water, but it does so in a stable manner. If the KH is too low the pH can vary widely even with the CO2 concentration remaining the same.
