Using distilled water for DWC

Discussion in 'Hydroponic Growing' started by ChillyWilly5, Jan 5, 2013.

  1. On average for people who use distilled...how much water to you go through per week, not counting a complete resevoir change. Just talking about top offs and such.
     
  2. Will be the same for R/O water.

    Depending on how many plants (duh).

    My 6 plant rig in bloom goes through about 10-12 gallons a week.

    Res holds 25 gallons with a swap out once a week.
     
  3. my 8 plant grows goes through about 5 gallons a week. I let it evaporate and the add 5 gallons distilled with fresh nutes
     
  4. Just starting my setup using dwc. Absolute beginner. Using 6 cup stealth hydro. Should I plant all 6 pots? First time growing anything using dwc. How far away from lights do you put the pots for best results?
     

  5. put the lights on an adjustable setup. measure temps at plants top. Dont exceed upper 70s. Plant 5 if you dont have a way to get/see inside the resevoir and use the sixth hole so you can do so
     
  6. are you gonna transfer them later on? IMO, 6 plants will be very cramped unless u train..or maybe dont veg too long.
     
  7. I'm going to scrog 3 plants in a 2x4x5 tent. 600w HPS.
