So maybe I should have said that my tap water ppm is already at 180. The ppm after i added the nutes was 300-320 so 100-140 ppm of nutes. Does that makes a difference or should I not have added any nutes
Just keep an eye on them. If you see any signs that they don't look right just dilute your bucket a little. I think you’ll probably get away with it.

Okay so clearly I'm working very hard at work googling my water report. Here are the pictures which sort of explain why my ppm out of my tap is so high.

Good news - all NDs on nasty stuff! Your Na max is only 20ppm also.

Looking for levels of things like Ca, Mg, and bicarbonates.
Felipeblu when I got home just now and checked the pH of my water which was at 6.0 at 11pm last night is already back up to 7.8 any idea why or how I can keep it down? Or do I need to wait until more roots and nutes for it to stay stable at 6.0

This is in your DWC reservoir, right? Your plants are too small to be eating so much that they are changing the pH. So something in your setup (media, water, nutrients) is buffering at a much higher pH.

Found a RO system on Amazon for 115$ cdn should be here nov4 to Nov 21 so probably not much point in adjusting or checking pH until I get that.
Before you spend that much, can you buy a few gallons locally and try it out - see if that’s the issue?

So the girls are coming along nicely, the GC is by far growing the fastest, I'm actually concerned it's stretching a little and maybe I should move the lights a little closer. Heres a pic of all 3. What do you guys think?
