GrowMax Mega Grow 1000 Reverse Osmosis Unit
When you really want to make sure the water you put into your garden is of the highest quality, look no further than the GrowMax Mega Grow 1000 RO unit! As the name suggests, this system will deliver 1000 litres of pure water per day. That should be plenty enough for most indoor gardeners. It removes up to 95% of salts and heavy metals and 99% of chlorine and sediments down to 5 microns. That means that you can be sure your plants will get the most from nutrients as there are less impurities coming from the water. This also helps to protect the micro-organisms found in soil. As an added benefit, the removal of herbicides and pesticides that find their way into the water mean that organic growers can rest easy!
What exactly does the GrowMax Mega Grow unit remove?
Removes: Salts, rust, oxidation, sediment, herbicides, pesticides, volatile organic compounds, chemical contaminants, benzenes, toluene, oils, THM’s, PCB’s and detergents. If you are using reverse osmosis water, it is best to use soft water nutrients, as they contain the full profile of elements. Hard water feed remove things like calcium, or at least reduce them. This is because these elements are in the water they are for. Using soft water nutrition on hard water can cause an overdose of certain elements which is bad for plants. You would need to flush the plants out to correct it, costing time and money.
At Straight Up Hydroponics, we tend to stock hard water versions to suit the water profile in the South-East, where we are. We can order soft water versions if need be, just let us know! We have a few other filters available online; to see them please click on this link.
