Re: High EC values

i think that the nutrient solution contains salts which alter the conductivity of the water. The electrical conductivity is a measurement of the amount of nutrients you have in the water, so it is meant to go up. You just need to know how high now.

Re: High EC values

I think your system could use a nutrient salt remover like clearex.

Your system has lots of mineral salts in it.

Re: High EC values

EC measures the amount of metals in your water i.e. iron, zinc and so on. Water is lost do to evaporation and how much the plant uses. As the water level goes down the EC value will go up. It's important to make sure that the water level stay ay it's full setting all the time .

I would recomend flushing your system every 2 weeks or so...
