The water filter thing I use on my tap water is amazing.

Our tap water is brown colored. You can see it when you fill up a 5 gallon bucket. With the filter it comes out clear. So a huge difference for mine.

My city water comes out a 7.6 or so PH. I have no problem at all with plants after getting the PH correct.

I’m not sure how to join I believe I can be a member??? Because I am a customer ,rite? But I have some questions. Cruz I’m in the middle of it again and things are starting to happen .the girls are big beautiful, BUT once again I’m just starting to get yellowing leaves burnt lookin tips .SO I flushed using pond water AKA reclaim water .NOW 3 days later things look better new growth green and leaves look like they got mussels. This makes me happy but why did I have to flush was it the rite thing todo does this mean I have a PH problem .last time it got bad brown crusty leaves and although I got a pound last time it sucked looked good just no effect
