Has anyone every used Kent's marine calcium supplement for snails?

I have a mystery snail in my 10 gal guppy tank and was thinking of using the liquid calcium supplement for his shell because it's looking kind of ragged. I adopted the two guppies and the snail a few weeks ago and the snail had a ragged looking shell already so I kind of wanted to give him a supplement, but will this also raise the KH and PH of the tank? And if so is it by a lot? The PH is pretty stable at 7.4 already but I do have a very low KH anyway. I just didn't want to send the guppies into a PH shock. Thanks :)

Thanks... Yes both my GH and KH are low. GH is 1 or 2 for tap and KH is like 2 also for tap water. But I'm keeping the PH pretty stable for the guppies right now with baking soda. Currently it's at 7.4 and has been stable. Even when I add the BS GH/KH don't change much. I'm gonna go for it but will keep a close eye on any drastic changes.
