So do you think I should ease up on the nutes if it’s toxic I will have to won’t i talk to me aqua man i trust you dude by the way I meant to ask you where you from brother
Central Canada bro. Depending on stage, source water and ratios you shouldn't need more than about 600ppm when the plants are late veg on.

Thank you for the feedback kuzz you are the man i use an ec meter and a ph meter i do my ec first then my ph the ec always rises after using the ph down whatever the nutes im using so i have to balance that one but i also have a blue lab truncheon and the reading im getting from my ec meter say is 2.3 the truncheon will be reading 0.8/1.0 that can’t be right i think the ec meter is the one to follow I’ve had the truncheon for years and never really used it but it is meant to be the best thing u can use i will have to get some of that calibration stuff i have seen it on line ppm is measured in two different ways on the truncheon one is TDS is ec not a good enough check then again I apologise for all the questions bruv peace ✌

Ok so EC is the best to use as ppm has 3 different scales depending which meter ya have 500 scale is the most common...

Anyhow EC of 1.2 should be all that's needed max.

You have a gram scale?

If you do take DISTILLED water and put 1 gram of TABLE salt in it... mix well and test... 500 scale ppm meter should read 1000ppm EC should read 2.0

No I use tap and my ec is 2.7/ sometimes it will get as much as 3.4 but grotek says the level should be at 2.9 just before the end of the veg period then it ranges from 2.5/2.6 then on week 7 if it is a 8 week finisher 1.3 that’s impossible to achieve using the grotek a&b without the other supplements im doing about 2.5 same as i was the last 3 weeks which was according to the grotek chart they seem to be sound but i have been told that sometimes it will still be bad for them but it will not seem to be at first my ec meter is okay i think it is reading about right using the dp using the right measurement of mls per litre so I am a bit fucked up on this one anyway im probably pushing the nutes but the plants are loving it and they look great 👍 quick one for you brother when you ec your water 💦 i use tap and it reads 0.7 do i have to subtract that from the end reading eg if I had a reading of 2.7 it would be 2.0..?

Ouch that's to high ppm on the source water... you have a water softener?
