I don't believe it has a filter. It's in the same roomWord. You do you brother. I was just throwing out what I would do. I've really fucked up some RDWC plants in every way possible. Where is the air pump that's feeding the air stones located? Does it have a filter?
My plants turned around as soon as I got the airstones out of the plant buckets. Warm unfiltered stale air being blasted into the roots isn't good in my mind. Again, you gotta do you. I shouldn't even be giving advice probably. But I had same issue and removing airstones from plant buckets helped. If foodoo chimes in (i tagged him so I bet eventually he'll turn up) he can give you much more thorough and detailed info.I don't believe it has a filter. It's in the same room
I get the stale air part . This is the pump.My plants turned around as soon as I got the airstones out of the plant buckets.

So you guys are having better success completely dumping air stones and air pumps and just utilizing the recirculating pumps return water fall? Appreciate the experience you all are sharingIt likely has 4x the amount of dissolved oxygen needed for a shark to survive. Plenty for plants
So the 900gph magma pump splashing into the Rez is enough for the 50 gallons of water in the 8 site rdwc ? Just turn off the air pump and I'm good? Should I increase the ppms since the d.o is going to be reduced? Currently at 100ppm for rooted 5 inches clones
Dam. would be nice if current culture realized this before selling the product as such So I'll try keeping my water level two inches above the net pot entire run and dump the stones ! Thank you againalso, with watering from the top, foliar feeding right away and continuing thru veg and first 2 weeks of flower completely gets rid of the ez cloner -> dwc transplant stall out everyone including myself experiences.
I wrote most of this once before. You need a carbon filter on or around that pump and don't run it all the time put on timer. If your house has good a/c filters you will see less of an effect. If you don't put a filter it will raise your PH.
In my case before I stopped the air stone. It would raise the Ph .1 to .2 a day. You plants look hungry. In the times before money was no longer important I made my own carbon filters now I buy them.
I use a real high tech filter get a box bigger than your pump and build a filter form a good Hepa filter and you will be good for 6 months. If the space guys on the way to the moon can use it so can you called duck tape.
If you want a cheep water filter for all the wonderful shit the city puts in to help shorten your life.
Get bag of cheep charcoal bricketts and a ball bat. Pound bag to granulate some, get the best part of crushed charcoal stick in panty hose, don't take the finest dust. Now get new clean plastic garbage bag and put panty hose in the bag and use rubber bands to make it more manageable . Hang it up so you can add water from the top of the panty hose. Cut small hole at one end or lowest corner of garbage bag and run your water thru that. Is good for about 40 to 50 gals. Ph and ppm before and after. When I make beer every drop of the water goes thru that kinda filter and is disposable and after dry can cook BBQ with. It makes the beer not have any green taste. After 3 doesn't matter but I can taste it.
One thing everything changes the PH if you use bounce fabric softener in a dryer with in a basement that will really effect the PH. Fabrez will make your plants look very strange, so keep it far away. Because of your type of rig brush your cloths or get lab coat. Most of your bug problem to come will ride in on you.
