Proactive pH Water Conditioner - 1 litre
Don’t settle for plain, hard tap water – condition your water!
Proactive pH Water Conditioner works quickly and efficiently to neutralize the cations of hard water. It greatly reduces the negative effects of hard water, and allows for better nutrient uptake.
- Used by top professionals in the horticulture industry
- Prevents the effects of hard water – such as nutrient lock out
- Balances the water in your reservoir, and stops the degradation of active ingredients
- Acidifies and buffers the pH value of your nutrient reservoir
- Contains wetting agent properties
- Super efficient, and incredibly easy to use with no fuss
How Proactive pH Water Conditioner Works:
pH Water Conditioner is essentially designed for growers who live in hard water areas and struggle with the problems that hard water can cause. When in solution, calcium and magnesium (the cause of water to be hard) form positive ions (cations). These calcium and magnesium cations can reduce the optimum availablity and absorption of other vital cations (such as potassium and phosphorous), and in some cases they can completely lock them out.
pH Water Conditioner neutralises the cations in your water, so balancing it and preventing any negative effects that hard water can cause to your plants. This greatly improves the availability of the important cations in your nutrients (particularly phosphorous and potassium) and improves nutrient uptake by the plant. The net result is that deficiencies are avoided, ensuring your plants grow strong and healthy.
The second way that Proactive pH Water conditioner works is by stabalising the pH of the water. For plants to be able to access nutrients in water the pH needs to be in the correct range. If the pH is out, certain nutrients become unavailable and deficiencies will occur. pH Water Conditioner lowers pH and stabilises it with buffers. This means that there is less pH management required and pH problems become a thing of the past.
It also has important wetting agent properties and stops nutrient solutions from producing foam when left to stand in your tank or reservoir. Due to being able to buffer and acidify the pH value of your water, it can greatly limit the effects of alkaline hydrolysis.
How to use Proactive pH Water Conditioner:
Use pH Water Conditioner before adding any nutrients. As with all nutrients, boosters and additives, never mix them together in their concentrated form (i.e. straight out of the bottle). Always add each nutrient, booster or additive to your reservoir or feed water in turn, giving the solution a good stir to mix it in before adding the next one.
Proactive nutrients and boosters are superb BUT if you use a reservoir in your system you need to keep it very well mixed. Using an air pump and air stone will NOT be sufficient. We strongly recommend the use of a purpose designed nutrient solution circulator such as one of the Sicce Water Circulators: Sicce Voyager Nano 1000 or Sicce Voyager Nano 2000
Make sure to keep out of reach of children, and keep container tightly closed. Also wash your hands thoroughly after handling. If you require for your nutrient solution to be lower than 6.0, add pH Water Conditioner until you achieve a pH of 6.0, then use a suitable pH down liquid until you reach your desired pH level.
Keep above 5 °C to preserve the integrity of the product
