Nutes in aero?

Just curious what nutrients people have had success with in aeroponics? Currently running GH trio in my RDWC but wanted to see if I could get some recommendations for my switch to aero.

Thanks Larry! I've read a lot of your posts and really appreciate you sharing your info. Quick question for you off topic. I've been looking at inline filters (rez to pump) and I'm having a hard time finding info on whether inline filters will sap out nutes? I've found a fridge/ice filter that seems to be perfect but not sure if these will filter out nutrients before getting to the plants? I've seen some setups that have a skimmer type filter instead, but do you have any recommendations or input?

If the nutes fully dissolve - and they should or they are crap - then the filter wont stop anything.

Well, unless its something like an RO filter.

You dont need anything that fine for filtration. A 200 mesh screen should stop anything that could clog any nozzles you are likely to use. Plus, the screens are cleanable and wont need to be replaced for a decade or so at least :)

here are a couple of examples
