Ph of water vs. nutrient solution

16 years ago

The guys at the hydroponics store told me that since most nutrients are balanced already that chances are I probably wouldn't have a problem with PH as long as I changed the solution some interval that works well anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks depending on how the PH is doing.

My tap water is a PH of around 8. I understand the nutrient solution should be 5.5 to 6.5 right? So are nutrients basically made with typical tap water of around 8 in mind?

Just curious... thanks for any info!
