okay, so i got my RO filter today (i have also managed to obtain 6 mature plants and 40 seeds, so it seemed like a good idea). I got it up and running, and tested its pH level - and my god was that high. Its got to be near 7.5 to 8.0 on the pH scale!
Rainwater around here is about 5.9 - 6.2 depending on the time of the year.
Distilled water is 6.0 or slightly below it..
and my R.O filter has a pH level of maybe 7.8 to 8.0
should i worry about the pH level of the water? I mean, it is R.O water, so its really clean - but the pH level is drastically different, so i am a bit concerned.
I used to have a salt-water fish tank, so i know how to lower and raise pH levels.. should i lower them down to 6.0? should i leave it the same?
