I have some seedlings in a bubble bucket setup with distilled water.
I have ph'd(Hanna digi cal ok Earth Juice Natural Ph Down) to 5.6 and overnight the ph will jump up to 7.
I have 0 nutes just distilled water at 20ppm.
A side possible related question in that the buckets are in a 6x8 room with a vented tankless gas water heater. The room is defn full of co2 and you get dizzy after a while standing in there. The heater was installed by the prev owner and is up to code but with the windows blocked and possibly my exhaust fan creating negative pressure the room fills with co2.
I do not have a co2 meter(any ideas for a cheap one?)
But could the co2 in the air cause the ph to rise quickly?
Or has anyone else seen the ph rise from 5.6 to 7 in 12hours from distilled water being aerated by a airstone.
they are 2 5 gal buckets with a 7.8l pump and 2 6 inch airtstones turned on low.
THANKS A MILLION FOR ANY HELP!!!!!:hello::hello:
