Been thinking of getting a water filter as i live in a hard water area , its just cost £446 to have the boiler repaired because of it . these are some readings of my water

tap water after been left to stand 24hrs PH=7.65 EC=ms 0.54

water from a brita filta jug PH=6.75 EC=ms 0.46

i know it effects my plant nutrient take up and you have to adjust to take in to account 

does anybody filter there water if so what system do you use 

Genesis 1:29-God said, “Look, I have given you all the plants that have grain for seeds and all the trees whose fruits have seeds in them. They will be food for you.

@dobbin I have a small 3 stage RO filter on hand as a backup if there’s a drought and my rain barrel goes dry. Mine is slow, takes 45 minutes to produce 5 gallons at EC .020 and it takes the filter 15-20 gallons of waste water (that I use to irrigate the flower gardens) to make it. I’ve used it a few times, it did great and the plants loved the water. Mine was about 50usd and the filter elements are rated around 250 gallons before replacement. Could be an expensive proposition if that’s all you use.

You don't say what you grow in but I'm in Coco and just switching over to Dutch Pro nutes, they have both a soft water and hard water version of their hydro/coco stuff

@monkeydo I've been checking them out you can get one for just under £100, if it improves my yield it's a no brainer , I'm growing in autos in auto pots with Coco and I know Macky thinks it a bad idea. But I think I've cracked my biggest issue which was PH fluctuations. To be honest I've really enjoyed solving the various issues I've had think it forces you to engage brain and think exactly what's going on with your plant's. I've learnt a lot because I've had to and also realize I still don't know much.

@jsh1973 I've bought the hard water starter kit from them , but have carried on using the samurai kit as I've fixed my pH now . Dutchpro were recommended by a Guy who works for Auto pots the system that I'm using with Coco along with Gold Label 60/40 Coco
