Default Low PH problem...What should I do???

Hi...I have just tested with a meter my soil in my tomato "drums" which are inside my house this soil has been low ( 4.5 to 5.5 ) for some time and I have tried all sorts of things like changing the soil round the roots best I can with a higher PH soil and within a couple of weeks I am back down to round 5......
I have put Dolomite Lime on and mixed with the soil but I have read that there can be problems later doing this Plus my gardening centre tells me it takes 12 months to break down so I want an alternative...

I now read Baking soda and water will raise the PH...

Has anybody got any ideas for me......Rest assured I will be taking a lot more care with my soil mix for my next lot of plants...

Thanks Ron
