This oneattachicon.gif3CBDD4FC-C85A-4BE6-A93A-5A78A6B6BB82.jpeg

same as i use them leg they work fine and the lid is handy and plenty big enough for aeration/dechlorination to happen overnight though do remember to cover them if not stored in the dark or they will grow green algae inside over time,peace

Your water is crap its recycled toilet water with added chlorine and fluoride. 

When growing organic a pure water source is needed to protect the microorganisms in the soil.

But your growing in coco with bottled nutrients which are generally bad anyway so I wouldn't worry too much about it.

I agree 100% solo. Water chemistry is so paramount to success.

I use RO with a 1:1 waste ratio and organics. Anything dirtier or more fucked up from city shit and my organic routine would be deader than dead.

 

If it's hard water or cannot be purified completely I agree the grower should prolly be doing hydro and try fix the water with salts to make it usable.

Soft water can work in soil sometimes but usually needs some sort of purifying. If not go hydro.

If the water source is pure as virgin taint, go organic :)
