PH DOWN by Hy-Gen – a solution containing 85% food-grade Orthophosphoric acid that effectively lowers the pH of your growing system. Here are important guidelines for using it:
- Nutrient Solution Preparation: Prior to adding PH DOWN by Hy-Gen, it is recommended to prepare your nutrient solution and allow it to equilibrate. The equilibration process can take up to 60 minutes, depending on the size of your tank.
- Proper Mixing: Always add the required amount of pH DOWN to a small separate container of water. Ensure thorough mixing to create a well-blended solution before adding it to your nutrient tank. This step helps prevent uneven pH distribution within the system.
By following these instructions, you can successfully utilize pH DOWN to lower the pH of your nutrient solution, creating an optimal environment for nutrient absorption by your plants.
WHEN TO USE
- Use pH DOWN every time your pH is too high.
- Adjust the pH only after tap water or additives are added to your tank.
- Once adjusted mix well and allow 30-60 minutes before re-testing and adjusting.
- Always pre-dilute pH UP, pH DOWN, and any other product with water before adding to your tank.
