If your water is really hard, the driftwood may not work either. My water did some weird
things a while ago, and the pH rose to 7.6 after coming out of the tap at 6.4. Not nearly as high as yours, but I still wanted to lower it for my betta. I put some driftwood in with no result, and tried the chemicals as well. I was just about to just spend the money on a cheap RO unit when it just stopped rising
. Maybe you could mix some RO water with your tap water to bring it down to reasonable levels. Other than that I really don't know what to tell you. Generally, it is much easier to raise pH than to lower it :( . Good luck.
