Using My Tap Water For Soil And Coco Coir

Snakeskins

A concern that I have for my plants in soil (in tent) and my two clones in coco coir, is that I’m using what starts out as 440 ppm and 7.9 pH from my tap to water all plants with.

I let 2 gallons of tap water sit indoors for a few days to bring the numbers to: 350ppm and 8.0pH.

This can’t help much as I only recently started using tap (instead of store-bought RO) to water my clones(in coco coir) with. I’ve been using tap on the plants(in soil) in the tent the whole time.

Just wondering, does anyone else start out with that high of a ppm reading included in their tap water for their grows? I want to at least bring that 350ppm number down with an inexpensive filtering or evaporating method.

Anyone else dealing with this same concern?

That’s a high ppm. If use RO personally, then add cal/mag.

My tapnis 7.3 and 1.8ppm.

I always let my water bubble for 24 hrs before using.

good that you allow the chlorine dissipate.

I have a similar problem. water ph is 8.3

getting water from aqufier in Northern A.

Has this chlorine threat ever been demonstrated?
I read it over and over, but from my experience using a variety of chlorine products in outdoor water storage pools, it seems that free chlorine would quickly react with vastly abundant reaction sites in dirt.
I don’t dispute that free chlorine will damage tissue, but the speed at which it would get removed just seems to question how much damage it could do to roots and microbes.

Just throwing this out there because it is such a mantra in the grow world.

I look at snakeskin’s first pic, and I can’t see any reason to change a thing.
Nice work.

have read several books about growing MMJ and a few of them recommended (R O or clorinr free water.

in my first grow and tried to make the least mistakes possible.
