Hey guys, listening to ep14 today and there was a brief discussion about water, PH ppm etc.

wondering has anyone tried water from a fridge through a water filter?

id imagine would depend on what’s in the water to begin with, just wondered had anyone played around with it to see.

@rufio You wouldnt be able to get enough water from that mate and itll be too cool for the plants too. So I dont think many people would have tried it

Also regarding temp, I’ve been filling a 5L bottle and leaving in the hot press for couple days before using to bring up the temp a bit, 

 

anyone see any issues doing this?

@rufio oh right lol. Still I think itll be too cold, you can get a reverse osmosis system for your tap water, and thall take out most of the shit in the tap water. I suppose its the same principle with the fridge water. I would test the background EC of the tap water, then test it after it has come out of the fridge, see if there is much difference. 

If i was to use the fridge water I would let it get to 18-23c before using it Smile

Just tested my refrigerator water. Our water has a very high background EC, not good for growing cannabis, so straight from the tap .693, through the refrigerator filter .587. There is some drop but not nearly enough in my opinion. I have an RO filter as a backup if rainwater isn’t available and that will bring the tap water down to .026.

@monkeydo thanks for that monkey 👍🏻 Now we know. Raises the question i guess wether using the filter for drinking water or not, discussion for another day maybe.

might actually look into collecting some rainwater, we get enough of it 😀

@rufio Some people like to mix their tap water with mineral water from a bottle to reduce the EC, you could try that? RO systems aint cheap, and the take a lot out of the water that the plant can actually use. 

Have you measured the EC of your tap water?

@macky no I haven’t man, just been warming and PHing straight from the tap and they seem to be doing ok so far.

Yea just looked up some RO filters and they ain’t cheap is right.

we have 19L mineral water bottles in work I might slip 1 or 2 home to see

I’ll look into getting an EC meter at some stage, trying to pick up bits as I go. Have to run it by the financial controller in our house 😂

Take a look on your local water suppliers website, they will be able to tell you what it should be. You might not need to RO it mate, I use water from the tap. If it below 0.4 you will be good to use it without filtering
