I will be doing DWC, my question is: with only 60 PPM in my tapwater, can I avoid messing with an RO system and just use Ascorbic Acid to remove chloramine, before using in my system? I can adjust my PH down. Thanx for your thoughts on this!
Under 200 ppm and you should be fine. As pointed out you will have to deal with chloramines. There is a product for ponds and aquariums that supposedly works too.
In my research in chloramine citric and humic acid at small amounts supposedly neutralise it.
I fill up 1 gal jugs (10) let them sit for +5 days and rotate them out ph Has been 6.8 to 7.6 that gives me a good base to start with.
