VitaLink pH Up Easy


What is VitaLink pH Up Easy?

VitaLink pH Up Easy is a concentrated alkaline solution that comprises 25% Potassium Hydroxide. It can be used to raise the pH level of almost any liquid, and mostly a plant’s nutrient solution. 

What is the use of VitaLink pH Up Easy?

VitaLink PH Up Easy is necessary for the growth and bloom phase of a plant growing in hydroponics or aeroponics. It’s used to raise the pH of the nutrient solution to adjust it to be within a certain range required to grow these plants.

How does VitaLink pH Up Easy work?

VitaLink PH Up Easy 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. VitaLink PH Up Easy is ideal for adjusting smaller volumes of nutrient solutions.

Why would I need VitaLink pH Up Easy?

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 VitaLink pH Up Easy is used to lower the acidity of the nutrient solutions to be within this range by adding the correct amount.

Description and components:

  • Suitable for smaller volumes of nutrient solutions
  • Comprised of 25% potassium hydroxide
  • Can be used to adjust the pH of almost any liquid

How to use VitaLink pH Up Easy?

  • 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. 


VitaLink pH Up VitaLink pH Up contains 25% Potassium Hydroxide and can be used in growth and bloom to raise the pH value of a nutrient solution. Potassium Hydroxide also provides a source of Potassium, which can be used by plants in bloom. 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 VitaLink pH Up to the nutrient solution, then recheck the pH value, repeat this until the pH reaches the value required Note - pH up and down can causes severe burns 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. VitaLink 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.
