Hello every one , its my first hydro growing , i did my best , some bugs remained but its goin on
i will happy to see your comments and suggestions

** My lights are leds , dob chips (direct AC 220) about 600w/Sm fullspectrum+3500k water cooling , its my own design :)

** hydro system is current culture RDWC (DIY) 20L buckets , 2 buckets per Square meter with a top feeding tubing

** The oxygenation is just perfect! its a semi jet 1hp pump thats have an air injection , makes cloudy white micro bubbles in seconds.
pumps to buckets for top feeding.

** Co2 Is automated by a co2 controller and 20l cylenders with a top rain injection and circulation

** bugs:
-Air circulation is weack
-PH is rising daily
-Water tempreture going up needs a chiller

Grow Questions
TheTehraNugs week 1 started grow question 5 months ago
Hi , i have a rdwc hydro setup , with a good oxygenation , using general hydrponic nutrients , using Fountain water with150ppm tds , ph about 7.5 I got the commone problem of rising PH daily , the question is whats the problem? Do i need RO filtration? System solution : 180L
Other General Questions
LaBOSSANOVA answered grow question 4 months ago
hey there, the problem as you know is the pH, you absolutely need the pH down, i prefer the power stuff, just make sure that it's safe for hydroponic use, GHE is releasing some pH down in powder form. You should be aiming for 5.8 pH not 6 or 7, 5.8 , after all the pH of rain water is 5.5 right? apart from the pH down dont change a thing ! hope this helps ! :rocket:

I would suggest that you boil the water that your going to put in your system first . This will help take away all the chlorine and some impurities from the water . Then let the water cool over night , once cooled you wanna add your nutrients and PH correct your water to 5.5 5.8 . This technique will help you keep your PH at regular levels more consistently in your grow . Your PH is far to high for a hydro system this will cause you a variety of problems in the future such as nutrient lock outs and stunts of growth because of the lock outs . When you decide to lower your PH to a range that more acceptable for hydroponic style grows I advise you do it slowly so you dont shock your plant and stunt its growth for a good period of time . I hope this information helps you to understand what some of your options are to help maintain that PH level in your re savoir as well as the PH range for a hydroponic type set up . Other then that your plant looks like its going to be big and beautiful :D. -Happy Growing!

With the rising ph it sounds like the water itself. I would maybe look into getting it tested to see for sure an why it is rising the ph. An R.O system would deff help. other than RO there might be other filter systems you could add but if your going to add filtering system you might as well go for the R.O then you know your starting with a clean slate. hope it helps and good luck!:blush:

thanks dude , but my system water capacity is too high for boiling and this kinds of treating , its about 180liters and the tds isnt very high(150ppm)that is fountain pur water , no chlorine or this kind of impurities...is this ph rising only related to water quality? my hydro system is empty of plants ,its just started to working for finding any problem befor puting my girls in the system

@TheTehraNugs, pH rising and falling is due to the organic matter in the tank and the bacteria and the plant itself, i keep telling people that the tank is breathing, and if you have the time to check pH and even PPM several times a day you'll be surprised to see that they each rise and fall every so often... the main thing in hydro is that you want a pH of around 5.8 not too much higher than that... and if i may make one final suggestion : definetely consider getting something like hydroguard or another chelation agent to keep the root zone healthy, clearly you're gonna run into problems down the line without these... hope i answered your question, anything else, just let me know ! :facepunch:
