Halfway down this thread I think Clive answers your question:
Yeah, it's always worth having a look. The usefulness of each report differs because of reporting styles I was looking at a Dee Valley report for someone and it looks like that area has lowish-to-midling TDS, which kind of implies softer and low nutrient content water. There's a wide range in that municipal zone though. I would definitely start with the baseline dosing as well as the addition of a little Calcium and Magnesium. You can always withdraw these two later on if you want, and look for any negative effects.REDSTEVEO said:..I have never thought about obtaining a water report for this area of North Wales. Might be interesting reading and as you rightly pointed out if the stuff is already in the water what's the point of buying and adding more.
Oh, Well, believe it or not, I started life as a Test Engineer. Now I'm a struggling Gangsta Rapper. I do a little freelance science on the side, you know, just to pay the bills....REDSTEVEO said:Bye the way, just like the previous post, I too am curious as to what you do for a living.
Hi Ady,Ady34 said:..Ive read the thread again but am confusing myself with numbers so would like to know from someone who does it regularly roughly what amounts of the n, p, k and csm+b i should be dosing in teaspoons on the appropriate days.
Obviously if its getting down to 1/16 then im guessing its ok to accidentally add a little more as its not exact....i just want to keep it somewhere near as i dont want uneccessary rises in tds.
