    Water looks good. The problem i have found is that when I bubble the water overnight to remove the chlorine it raises the PH. A really high PH creates problems in soil as well. unless you use tons of soil to buffer the PH.

    My water full of chlorine and I just sit it for 24 hours to get rid of chlorine...
    Is that enough or should I bubble it also?

    No idea mate. I never tested it in a lab. It just makes sense that if it bubbles the chlorine would evaporate better.

    After it sits 24 hours does the PH change? If it does not then I would stick with this and not be bubbling.

    Definitly need one. Even in soil imo. My PH issues always show up later in the grow when the pot is full of roots and there is no soil buffer left. I think the best way to tackle this is by being mindful of what we feed them. 10 weeks of feed at 7.8-8.2 PH hurts the plants regardless of what people say about PH and soil.

    By people I mean weed growers. Try telling an industrial food farmer to not worry about PH because he is growing is soil

    You should call them and ask if the water needs to sit. Since it is made for your water they perhaps use something to neutralize the chlorine?
