Well Water PPM at 800!

  1. Can anyone help me out? I'm on well water, using a Big Boy filter. It does nothing to my PPMs. They are at 800. Leaves are yellowing and dropping fast. Buds looks great... 5 weeks into flower. Is my only option getting RO?
  2. Your lucky you can fix your problem with RO.

    Use the waste to flush your toilets.
  3. I own a water treatment business who specializes in well water farms. Well water really causes so many problems with nutrient and pH issues. RO will solve these issues and lower your TDS and PPM. Keep in mind that RO sends two or more gallons of water down the drain for every gallon of purified water. Also RO technology concentrates CO2 in the "product water". Luckily a good air stone will correct this. If the RO rejection water is an issue for your well I can recommend products that can cure your well water pain.

    Well water reduces an RO's life from heavy scale, tannin, bacteria, nitrates, chemical from ground supply, and heavy sediment. Expects dirty filters sooner and frequent filter changes to compensate.
