pH control is essential in a hydroponic system
Plants in hydroponic systems function best with a nutrient solution pH of between 5.8 up to 6.2.
We have a full range of control solutions, essential in the proper management of nutrients in hydroponic systems. We manufacture these products using the purest and most concentrated sources available.
Bottled in black and red – the internationally accepted packaging colours for aggressive liquids.
Full compliance with all health and safety regulations.
pH UP contains potassium hydroxide (KOH). This is a very caustic liquid and should be handled with extreme care. Once again our product, at 25%, is stronger than some competing products. Always check the label for the best value.
Health & Safety
This liquid needs safe and careful handling:
- Always wear gloves and eye protection when handling aggressive liquids
- Always store in locked cupboards
- KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN
pH Up and pH Down solutions can only be sent to mainland UK addresses. We cannot ship this product to any offshore destinations due to the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) code. If you’re unsure about whether we can ship this product to your address then please contact us.
pH UP and pH DOWN should be diluted before use.
Conversions: 1 Teaspoon = 5mL | 1 Tablespoon = 15 mL | 1 Ounce = 30mL | 1 Cup = 240 mL
Using the correct pH in your nutrient solution is essential, too low or high and it could have a detrimental effect on your plants, so ideally the level should be between 5.8 – 6.2.
When mixing up nutrient solutions, pH can fluctuate, or the water being used, has a naturally low pH, but with just a couple of drops of Growth Technology’s pH Up or Down, it can change the pH to a more acceptable level, and one that your plants will love you for.
The Growth Technology pH Up & Down formula is highly concentrated so only a few drops can dramatically change the pH, therefore its recommended that a small amount is diluted in just a few millilitres of water first, then added to your nutrient solution drop at a time.
NEVER use pH Up and pH Down together. If you’ve accidentally used too much pH Down, DO NOT use pH Up to correct the problem and vice versa. If this happens, we recommend you dispose of the solution and make a fresh batch as mixing pH Down and pH Up can have a chemical reaction and render the nutrient solution unusable.
With pH Up being 25% Potassium Hydroxide, and pH Down being 81% Phosphoric Acid, extreme care should be taken when using them. If it comes into contact with skin, eyes, clothing or even swallowed, rinse with clean water immediately and always read the safety notes before use.
You should also make sure that your pH meter or pen is kept clean, rinse between use and regularly calibrate it using a known pH liquid, such as Buffer 7, so it always reads accurately.
“Growth technology pH up is a must for any serious grower out there to maintain the correct levels. I also purchased pH down from my good friends, GTP Hydro. I would highly recommended this product to anyone who is serious about growing.”
“Just received my pH down. Super excited to try out to see if it actually does what it says it does. Customer service at its best! Definitely looking forward to doing more business with the company. Thanks!!! Will be back shortly down the road with more details!!”
“ It is refreshing to have a complete line of required nutrients and beneficials put into 1 simple website. Now my growing has never been so easy and fun. The cost effectiveness of using 1 website for everything is unmatched compared to when I was ordering stuff from all over the place. Carol, a very satisfied customer.“
