some of this can maybe help you..in the ideal situation you get the water level falling, the ec somewhat stable and ph too or slightly rising. all the other situation require a different approach..

PH EC Chart1

if you want to see the data from my grow i will add it below, in my case the ec is "stable" and ph is continuously rising slightly and my system will dispense 3 ml of ph- solution every few hours when needed..

Thank you for the info. I’ll give it a try and see if I can get it more stable. What system do you have that is auto adding ph solutionΒ

Hey @pollinatedhi, diy builds are great and you learn a lot. One thing to remember is to prep your Hydroton (clay pellets) before your grow. Make sure to rinse thoroughly, I like to use RO water. Then soak it in RO water that is PH'ed to 5.8-6.0, keep it in the water for 24 hrs and keep checking and adjusting PH as necessary. You can add Cal/mag to the solution, enough to achieve an EC of about .20-.25, maybe 1ml for 4L or more of water. I use syringes for livestock (no needle) to measure the small amounts of nutz, they're the 12ml syringes.Β  Hope it helps man. Good luck.Β  Β  Β  Β peace

@pollinatedhi, yeah if your having PH problems, it could easily be the hydroton screwing things up. Just pour water with hydroguard over it once a week or more.
