    Is there a reason why I shouldn't have an auto top off in my reservoir?

    My reservoir is a 25 gallon bin. My plants drip feed in rockwool (double stacked 6" blocks), then drain into the reservoir. I'm finding that I'm often adding fresh water to balance the nutes/pH from creeping up. I currently have a top off valve running from my RO system into a bucket for...
