    Rite guys I’m just reading bits and bobs online and wanted to ask about ph fluctuations...

    So say I check the epicentre and the ph has gone up, what’s the best way of sorting it out? Like if I just tried doing it in the epicentre then it’s just going to get dragged straight to the first pot isn’t it ?

    Is the fluctuations that bad in rdwc or does the flow of the water with the pump stop it a bit when you have all these air stones giving oxygen out ?

    If so would you put one of them float valves so when it gets too lit it fills back up?

    My advise would be don't use silicon to ph up as the plants consume it and you are back to square one. Personally I have dropped silicon as as it messes your ph all over the place.

    I know you're not supposed to but I do adjust ph and nutrient strength directly into the epicenter. Just mix it with some water and add VERY SLOWLY so it has a chance ti filter gradually through the system maybe take 4-5 minutes to add 2 litres. That's how I do it but not saying it is how it should be done. Ideally add it through your feed tank if you are not to far out of wack.

    At first I was just chucking it in (my smaller veg system) and i did notice the first plants in the system line had what I considered to be slightly burned roots.
