  4. @817ricky82 true, and I said you can buy a meter in the vid. Also that I
    don’t like them because they are not as reliable, that’s just personal
    preference though :-)

  5. @scott98390 Thanks for the tip. I dont have pH issues in that tank, but I
    do in another with nutes in it… I wonder if it would be ok to add that to
    a reservoir with store bought nutes? I would stop adding my calcium
    supplement ofcourse…

  6. A few clean eggshells (microwaved for a couple of minutes to kill any
    nasties) in a mesh bag somewhere in your system will help to control Ph and
    add calcium for your plants.

  10. because the ph is low just add a couple of handfulls of shell grit and that
    should stablize the ph
