    ello mukka, tbh dont like idea of coco in auto pots as i always have run to waste in coco its allow to rid the coco of any build up of salts by gettin plenty run off.

    whats your back ground EC mate? ec of tap water before adding anything to it

    let ya res ph swing set it at 5.6 then reset it once gets to 6.2, plants looks healthy enough a min mate you ya doin sumfin right

    ec can be little tricky in auto pots though tbh, as you bottom feedin them now i take it? but whats the back ground EC of your tap water? (fill a glass water up from the tap an pop ya meter in an see what it reads)

    Gramps you do realise lowering the EC is weakening the formula.

    Ph after adding a an b 6.3 ph
    Ppm 1011 @ 27 degrees
    Ec 2022 @ 27 degrees
    Added 2 more liters r o to a 3 gall mix brought ec down to 1870 @ 27 degrees so its not working on this feed cos all im doing is weakening the formular ...so decided to leave it ...next time around it in soil...not coco again ...
    Then after im changing to another type of organic nutes ...
    Even the base nutes in oa is reading ec 1628 and
    Ppm @ 814 @ 27 degrees

    When hand watering I don't usually get to 2ml per litre of a and b till I'm in flowering. If you dropped it back to 1.5 the EC should drop. The recommended dosages on nute bottles are usually double what's needed.
    Also, if using tap water, leave it to breath at least 12 hours for the chlorine and other bits to evaporate.
    Just my 2 pence.
