Are you using town water?


I findit really hard to push down the PH of townwater, starting around 8ph out of the tap


Using rainwater the starting ph is around 7 and just a few drops of ph down will drop it to 6


I need like triple the ph down on townwater


the ec of townwater is like 10 times that of rain water (in my hood)

My mains is very high pH and it takes a bit to bring it down.

I used vinegar once but my girl didn't like it at all.

My nute manufacturer also makes pH tester, pH up and down. All hydro specific, made for hydro. :thumbsup:

My nutes have a pH nuetraliser. Which works well for a fresh nute mix, but the next day I need to bring it back down again with the pH down.

hay it sounds like you need to calibrate your PH tester OR buy a test kit from general hydroponics Im running Super Natural in my hydro system and my girls are really liking for veg 700-800 ppm and 6.5 to 7.0 ph but remember when your in hydro you should check your ppm and Ph at least once a week because the water is constatantly evaporating which causes concentrations of your reservior i hope this helps :bangin:
