Why does ph change after some hours when you use pH up or down?

Should. It be re-corrected again? I just prepare 20l of water with fertiliser and correct pH. Should I fix the pH everytime? Why does. It change?

the surface of the water picks up and reacts to the co2 in the air. Keep it sealed and the pH will stay more stable. If you are dealing with non filtered water, the acids used to correct the pH continue to react against some of the solids in the water, changing the pH as the amount of acid goes down and some of the particulates get broken down too.
