Vitalink PH Down

VitaLink pH Down is a concentrated acid (81% phosphoric acid) which can be used to adjust the pH of nutrient solutions.

Use in small controlled doses to lower the pH of nutrient solutions. Mix thoroughly and measure with a calibrated pH meter to attain the desired pH reading. Ideal for adjusting large volumes of nutrient solution.

How Vitalink pH Down it works:

Vitalink pH Down is a concentrated phosphoric acid that can be used to reduce the pH of almost any liquid that it is added to. When growing plants in hydroponics or aeroponics. It is necessary to keep the pH of your nutrient solution within a certain range. Different plant species have different requirements but in general most plants like a pH range of 5.5 – 6.5. pH Down is added sparingly to nutrient solution to help keep the acidity within this range.

To grow plants successfully, particularly in hydroponics. It is necessary to monitor and adjust the pH of your nutrient solution on a regular basis. In general, plants grown in hydroponics like a pH of approximately between 5.5 and 6.5 (plant species dependent) with a little bit of variation within this range.

This is because plants can only absorb certain nutrients at a pH close to 5.5 and others at a pH closer to 6.5. If your nutrient solution strays out of this optimum range for too long. Your plants will not be able to absorb all the nutrients that they need and will become deficient. Leading to slowed growth and eventually sickness. To avoid pH problems, and the plant problems that it can cause, it is wise to check and adjust the pH of your nutrient solution very regularly (every day if possible).
