General Hydroponics GH1514 Ph Control Kit

pH controls is essential for stimulating vigorous plant growth. The pH scale measures acidity or alkalinity on a scale of 0-14. Below 7.0 the pH is acidic. Above 7.0 , the pH is alkaline. 7.0 is nuetral. The best pH for general plant growth is in the range of 5.5 to 6.5, slightly acidic.Nutrient solution that is too high (basic) or too low (acidic) cannot be properly asbsorbed by plants. Incorrect nutrient solution pH can cause slow growth,sickly plants and low yields.

  1. Works great This kit is easy to use and works great. To start, you simply scoop a bit of the water to be tested into the small clear container that comes with the kit.

If the pH is too high, you add a few drops/gallon of “pH Down.” If the pH of your water is too low for your purposes, you add a few drops/gallon of “pH Up.” I grow…

  2. Just what you need if you don’t have a meter I bought this pH test kit instead of a digital pH meter. A good digital pH meter is fairly expensive and a cheap meter could have questionable accuracy. Plus, I have had experience using digital pH meters at work a few years ago, and they are just hard to deal with, not as far as using them, they are easy to use to test the pH of something, but they can easily fall out of tolerance and need to be calibrated, you don’t necessarily know when the reading is off and it needs to be calibrated, as…
