How often do you add UC Roots and how much do you add?
I have an ORP meter and have tracked UC Roots over several grows. I have found that adding 3 ml per gallon on system changes, then an additional 3 ml per gallon every 7 days keeps the ORP in the desired range. I've been doing this over my last 5-6 grows and have had no root issues. Upon harvest the roots are nice and white and very healthy.

@RoeBuck What is the ORP level you are keeping it?
And which nutrient line are you using?
Everyone tells how successful and great their grow is but never reveals the exact details. What is your desired orp range and what orp meter do you use?
To be honest, I tried with a Marine ORP meter, I'm not even sure it was really accurate, I throw it in the garbage. I do my own hypochlorous acid and it never went that great. adding 5ml/gal on flush and adding the same amount on 4th days (1 week flush)... My roots are perfect.I know this thread is a year old but i've been trying to find the answer to this as well and believe i came across the answer on a hydroponics site. It states if you want to run a sterile hydroponic environment you’ll want to keep the ORP of your solution probably in the 300-500mV range, large enough to prevent any micro-organisms from growing but low enough to prevent any damage from happening to your roots.
What about using Chloine test strips to test the remaining UC Roots activity inbetween and during Top Ups?I have an ORP meter and have tracked UC Roots over several grows.
