    i prefer simple, cheap and sterile. 0.10 grams of HTH pool shock per 10 gallons water=1ppm chlorine=done!

    if you move the chiller out of your closet, it will help keeps temps down (if needed)

    I don't have a scale to measure out weight. I also don't know how to just add 1 ppm and when I do add it do I have to add more Every other day or only on Rez change? I was looking up on chlorine and i found out about CLEAR REZ... should I just use that recipe?

    i used to use a RCBS reloading scale but then i bought a decent pocket digi accurate to 0.01 for like 35 bucks. it's even more accurate than my reloading one was. the 1 ppm is what you get after you add 0.1g to 10 gallons. chlorine is safe for MMJ up to 3ppm so you could triple it to 0.3 g per 10gal. that is what ppm i run at only because i do hempy buckets where the res temp is the grow room temp.

    that recipe for clear rez is just to make a stronger stock solution that you add at a certain mL/gal.

    i use it at every res change.

    i have a hornady scale but really like their dies and their Customer service is awesome, lifetime guarantee etc, i got a case stuck in one of my dies (not enough lube) and used a Hammer on threaded bar bit to Hammer out the case and bent the rod, called them up and they sent me new one no probs with a load of spare primer pins. Soz i have gone off topic a bit here :wall:

    Ok I'll try to add under 3 ppms so I can get the Rez right ... if you measure it how much would it be ? I read that about 1/4 tsp was around the right amount

    if it were me, i'd be as precise as possible with pool shock. it's strong stuff and too much could be very bad.

    Ok so I didn't want to keep light blasting my seedling with 600w. So in the mean time this little cfl will help them out...

    things I want to get or do
    1. Commercial air pump & stones
    2. Veg lamp/light (under $150)
    3. Convert to RDWC (3x totes or 6x buckets)
    4. Grow tent

    Here's a quick pic

    New pump I got today ... adds at least 5 degrees and blows hot air.
    Connected are 3 different sized air stones and 3 long tube air diffusers. I hope this is enough air

    So here we are on our first week... the seedling stage is over and week 1 is live. I've noticed some sort of build up on my net pots and not sure what it is or why it keeps appearing.

    Don't have a scope and can't really smell it either. I think it's some sort of slime or bacteria
