[Support request] Airdome and air stone ph differences

  • October 28, 2023 at 9:34 am #1259

    I have air stones attached to my airdomes inside my pots. I know now from research that this is not advised.
    My ph level in the tank is 6.1 which is perfect for me but the pH level in the trays rises to 7.1 with the airdomes turned on. Would you recommend lowering my tank pH level to counterbalance the rise in pH in the trays or would you recommend keeping my airdomes turned off until the end of the current cycle?

    Hi ….. The pH change will be due to the type of growing media you are using….. ideally the perfect pH in the TRAYS is 6.3, you can check from time to time by taking a syringe sample after the water has been in the trays for an hour or so and test….. SO to counter act this lower your pH in your reservoir to hit the pH seed spot
