Can use epsom salt/tap for mg and calciumI’m filtering becaus I have neighbors and even though I don’t think they care I’d rather not let any odors sneak out, I need to pick up some cal-mag I just saw it at my local garden center the other day (also fox farms brand) I did also pick up a dual stone pond airstone, tested my tap water and it has 115PPM. So I’ll run 2x 5 gallon buckets at a time (gunna also use it in the humidifiers I go through about a gallon in each one per day on low to stay around 56-65% RH also picked up a a pre-filter to add to remove chlorine and chloramine (not sure which my town uses) so just to be safe I’ll use both lol
I am worried that the increased airflow will drop my RH like a stone so we’ll see I can maintain the 50% on average but I’m running around 79-81f on average so I’m close in the VPD chart but a little low in RH for my temp, nowhere near danger but not ideal for veg it seems
If I get a year out of the filters I’d be happy, to replace the 4” and the 6” at the same time would be about $100 so I’m not overly worried about it as long as there’s no detectable odor at all
Yeah I figured I’d check it before I switched to the filtered / arrayed tap. When I saw it was that low with 7.0PH that’s awesome, after adding neuts it dropped to 6.1PH added 8 drops of PH up per gallon and ended up near 6.4PH and in the pot it went haha. I barely water to runoff basically I water each pot with the gallon all together, wait 10-15 minutes then do another gallon across all 5 and then do it one more time normally I end up with mabye 1/2 cup coming out of the bottom of the fabric pots when I water with plain water I soak them down good maybe 3-4 cups of runoff per pot118 PPM is awesome straight tap water bro. Mines like 350 IDK I never check it....its not something I concern myself with.
Ive watered to runoff 1 time in 8 weeks. Also something Im not concerned with.
Youre waters fine dont sweat the small stuff.
I need an orange bucket set up like you got
Just a 5gal bucket and some air stones/ and a water pump?
Most areas publish a water analysis every year. Google the name of your town/city + "water report" and you should find it easily.You’d think I know what they use for bacteria control but I don’t I just moved to this town about 6 months ago, but the town water tower is right across the street from me haha… yeah my water pressure is pretty good rofl
