You should used ro water or distilled water, they work best. You can use tap water but its not recommended. If useijg tap water you will go threw more of bottles 1 and 2 i belive.

I have found the big jug but it is only “purified”. Is it the same as the brand names over $1 for a self serve “purifies by Ro”?

Tap water just ends up using ph more… and don’t bend I’ve the rumor that ro is better than tap… there’s no buffer in ro so that water can actually leach nutrients from the roots …

Which water distiller did you go with @Chef ? I went with counter top RO as it is an easier/faster process and according to Grobo RO Water is great :expressionless:. Now that I’ve learned this I’m switching to distilled. Debating whether I just have 12 gallons a month delivered (the delivery service near me only delivers in 6 gallon increments) or go with a countertop distiller.

Same here. I have a ton of house plants also, Water distiller been great. Already paid for itself

I use this one - No complaints so far. Use it heavily as well.

The glass jug came cracked - They refunded me 50% of the unit, and I just fill into plastic jar now.

Awesome, thanks for the recommendation. Checking that one and one that’s slightly larger.

This is the one I went with. You can sent the temp. You can even distill your owen alchohol in it if you want since you can set direct Temps. It works great.

Thanks a lot for the advice everyone, I have to grab one of those machines to distill some myself :raised_hands:, (even though I already found out I had more in the tank than I thought after I got home with 1g distilled Water from the grocer And it didn’t even fill all of the one.)

Ended up rolling with this distiller unit, it’s on back order but will publish a review once I have a chance to work with it.
