Default pH is too high

With the recent rains, almost 4 inches, my ponds pH has gone up. I would
like to use a natural product to do this than a chemical acid. I was
thinking of using a woman's knee-hi hose packed with peat moss, tied off at
the top and placed into the top of the bio-falls. Any comments or other
suggestions? I understand that it will make the water tea colored but I can
live with that as I hope to use it for a week or so and then remove it after
getting the pH down to acceptable levels again. I plan on put several water
hyacinths in the top of the bio-falls next month. Its currently at 9.0 pH
and usually around 7.8 - 8.0 pH without having to do much about adjusting
anything since its fully cycled and has become stable. The pond is 600
gallons with a large Pondsweep Bio-falls and Skimmer to create a large
waterfalls through a veggie-bog filter in the top area to the lower pond.

9.0 is not anything like an emergency....I would do some water changes. Unless
there is amonia in the pond bringing it down gradually is the best. Jerri
