Just 2 days and I noticed my reservoir started to become cloudy.
I did notice the drain was letting light directly into the res, so I threaded the ebb/flow drain cover on, which blocks it now. I drained the res, sterilized it with h202, soaked the pumps in h202 and refilled with fresh rodi and nutes again. This time I did not add Bioag Ful-power, but I did add about 20ml of 35% h202 before adding nutes. Should I try this again for a couple days? Maybe something residual from the pumps carried over or perhaps try the air stones?
12 gallons RODI water, Armor SI, GH calimagic, GH 3 part, Bioag Ful-power
No Air stones
This is what I use. Waters perfectly clear.
I use it at at least half strength
Dude that’s an awesome set up I think that when I go hydro I’m guna get a ebb and flow table
Thanks, its the 3x3 ID botanicare, fits perfectly in the 4x4 tent.
I will pickup some UCroots and report back.
I used that too on your reccomending it last year when I was fumbling around with hydro lol. It cleaned it right up. Took my whole system apart though and cleaned everything including the airstones.
@Slym3r hit it on the head…microbial contamination is more problematic in hydro systems. All that nutrient and oxygen stimulates the little buggers…
I use UC Roots in my Turboklone it keeps it from getting slimy while cloning!
1-2 ml/per gallon. It helps keep it clean and it seems to help the roots very well!
My TURBOKLONE SETUP
- 20 ml Clonex solution per gallon of water.
- 1 drop Superthrive per gallon of water.
- 1 ml of UC Root per gallon of water.
- PH to 6.0
Next time I clone I’m going to use Hormex instead of Superthrive at about 5 ml/gallon.
So off topic but my Rodi buddy system ran all night accidently, fortunately I had a float valve. Would my best bet be to replace the filters at this point, I will check ppm first I guess.
I watch the PPM’s for replacement. If you’re using the 50 per day they should be good for a minimum of 6 months. I change mine out when the R/O water starts PPM’s hit between 3 and 5. It really depends on the water quality going into the system.
Ok it’s the 100 gallon system. The deionizer is wearing out but I have a backup already. I’ll check ppm today.
