    A little sulphur smell has worked just fine for me. Plants like it. No they will not cause your weed to smell like it.

    Hi, J/W if Spring water is alright to use to water my plants ?

    No to "distilled". Most spring water will be just fine. Spring water can contain beneficial chemicals. Depending onthe spring you may want to check PH initially. Distilled is rather sterile and I think is low in O2.

    So your saying do not use distilled water? I'm new at this and have purchased a box from BC Northern Lights, so far I am not impressed. I just lost my 3rd batch, I'm thinking bout changing this bastard to dirt. Hydro can't be for a beginner?

    Promix peat mix is easy. Yeah, don't use distilled. If you are going to buy water go with Walmart RO

    Any new or unknown water source should be sent to a lab. To get it analyzed will cost you around $50.


    Better safe than sorry in a lot of cases :)

    So will leaving your resovoir open for 24 to 48 hours after filling with tap water, soften the water, or will it just get rid of the chlorine. And if I don't let chlorine evaporate and use hard water on my plants, what's the worst that could happen?

    No worries bro, I use tap too. Just let it sit out to remove the chlorine, and even out to room temp. You and your girls should be fine

    It will reduce the chlorine concentration, that's it.

    If you use hard water, just use a fertilizer that is lower in calcium and magnesium.

    My RDWC system uses 38gallons each water change so that doesn't go very far. RO system is still on my wish list. I keep adding lights and more accessories plus keeping nute supply steady pretty much been taking up my budget for now.

    My ppm 500 reading for tap is 110. Not bad but I think I have some signs of chlorine toxicity on my plants so I bought a tall boy to filter the Chloramine. We'll see...
