  1. But Cali Your Spot on I had some major issues in my organic grow Ive been growing from tap water here in my local area for many years so no reasons to filter or even think about issues granted I did have a deep water well on my first prop the second place was city but the city changed their process on Jan 1 2015 went to Chloramine and I found out the hard way when I lost my entire garden over a slow death. I tried to reverse the effects by giving them Springwater flush but the damage was extreme and almost a disease. Gosh man you go into super good detail and the way you explain is very informative but with a noworries care about you I luv it and your onpoint with the extras. Most guys would do a sorry ass explanation of this you went all out the way Id hope. You did this man Thank you very much Ill be following u in IG fam and here. Captain

  2. Albert Einstein once said that if you can’t explain it simply then you probably don’t understand it very well… this guy knows his stuff. His videos are always very informative and empirical, when I start my grow im going to binge his channel just to stockpile info and tips

  3. both times i have grown, i have not ph'ed my water and overwatered the whole plant's life, my stuff has not been very good… i called our water plant, and tap water in my area is 8.0 ph. .. .it's amazing my plants even made buds !

  4. Another GREAT vid!!! Please keep them coming. I really rely on the info that you provide. TYVM!
    Question please… I live in the NE US and have well water that taps an underground aquifer. Therefore, no chlorine but I'm not sure what my ppm might be. Do you have any experience using well water or have you seen any research with results from using well water? Thanks again!

  5. Ascorbic acid works well to remove both chlorine and chloramine and the reaction is immediate. This lowers ph slightly, but it takes very little AA for removal and if your ph is above 6.0 there shouldn't be any issues.

  6. I'm a qualified water sampler and this is legit. I work in rural Alaska and sample ponds, rivers, and wells for baseline data and water quality as well. Thanks for raising water quality awareness and for dropping top shelf content. Cheers.

  7. Great presentation man, I was also thinking about water temperature after leaving my large container on a cool tile floor and assuming it was room temp. Roots dislike cold moisture obviously

  8. I love this channel but it's not true you need a water filter to remove chloramines.

    Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) neutralizes chlorine and chloramines chemically. you can buy it in powder form on amazon. a tiny amount will do the job and it works instantly. I use 1/8th of a teaspoon per gallon, which is way more than you actually need. you want powder; a vitamin C pill will not dissolve well. ascorbic acid is only mildly acidic so it won't change pH significantly.

    no need for RO or buying distilled water. This isn't a "broscience" thing, this is an actual science thing that water companies use themselves to remove chloramines. $15 of ascorbic acid powder is enough for a lifetime.

    The other stuff in tap water is mostly calcium carbonate, magnesium, iron and boron, all good stuff for your plants to have in my book. microbes love calcium carbonate in particular. I see people buying distilled water then adding calmag to it. It's such a waste of natural resources and money. super high EC can be a problem for other reasons, but adding ascorbic acid is all you need to keep microbes happy.
