I just use tap water it comes out at like a ph of 7 so I just add nutes and then it needs to come up a little bit to be right about 6.
I don't know the taps ppms cause I dont have a meter, due to lack of funds.
I am super broke all I have is either a homie hookup or a loaner to get me through. I need to save up and get a ppm meter what's a good one and what do they run $ ?
Then i will need advice on how to use the thing.
Just a suggestion but you might want to run your PH lower in the hydro.
I try to get mine as low as 5.5 when adjusting it. If I get it to 5.8 I just leave it there. Any higher then that I adjust it again. I check my PH every morning. The day before I set my PH at 5.8 and by the next morning it was sitting at 6.3.
Hanna makes a pretty inexpensive PPM meter for something like 30 bucks. You can find cheaper ones I'm sure. My meter was pretty spendy. About 275.00 but it reads damn near everything. I think it even reads my heartbeat and pulse lol
