What is Growth Technology pH Down?

Growth Technology pH Down is a very basic alkaline solution that contains 81% Phosphoric acid. It’s used to lower the pH level of a plant’s nutrient solution. 

What is the use of Growth Technology pH Down?

Growth Technology pH Down is necessary for the growth and bloom phase of a plant growing in hydroponics or aeroponics. It’s used to lower the pH of the nutrient solution to be within the correct range required to grow these plants.

How does Growth Technology pH Down work?

Growth Technology pH Down should be added with controlled doses to raise the pH of the nutrient solutions. After mixing the small doses thoroughly with the nutrient solutions, it should be measured with a calibrated pH meter to reach the desired reading. Growth Technology pH Down is ideal for adjusting larger volumes of nutrient solutions.

Why would I need Growth Technology pH Down?

It’s necessary to keep your nutrient solutions’ pH within a certain range when you’re growing plants in hydroponics or aeroponics. While different plant species have different requirements, in general, most plants like a pH of 5.5% - 6.5, and Growth Technology pH Down is used to raise the acidity of the nutrient solutions to be within this range by adding the correct amount.

Description and components:

  • Suitable for larger volumes of nutrient solutions.
  • Comprised of 81% Phosphoric acid.
  • Can be used to adjust the pH of almost any liquid.

How to use Growth Technology pH Down?

  • Add controlled doses.
  • Mix thoroughly.
  • Measure with a calibrated pH meter to reach the desired pH reading.
  • Cautious: pH up and down can cause severe burns. It should be kept away from children. pH Up and Down can react very violently if mixed; use separate measuring gadgets when adjusting the pH values. 

 

Growth Technology pH Down

Growth Technology pH Down contains 81% orthophosphoric acid and can be used in to reduce the pH of a nutrient solution. When growing indoors the pH value of nutrients fed to plants needs to be controlled. Plants are able to absorb nutrients more easily at a pH value of between 5.5 – 6.5. For plants to perform to their full potential pH will need to be monitored and adjusted at regular intervals( daily if possible).

Adjust pH by adding a small amount of Growth Technology pH Down to the nutrient solution, then recheck the pH value, repeat this until the pH reaches the value required

Note - pH up and down can cause severe burns to keep out of the reach of children. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice Wear suitable gloves and eye/face protection. pH Up and pH Down react violently if they come into contact with each other.

Never mix them together.

Use separate measuring equipment when adjusting pH values.
