    I use rainwater and city water which sits for over a day to allow the chlorine to evaporate. Have always done it this way.

    Gah! Letting water sit may dissipate some of the bad chemicals, but it does nothing to remove the ionized minerals in the water. I would highly suggest you move to an alternate water source. Even though it may have worked in the past, water quality is not a constant and you can not expect that tap water will always work.

    The minerals in the city water don't evaporate with the chlorine. Unless your water has a low ppm (usually below 50 is low) than it isn't safe. otherwise, stick to rainwater, distilled, or Reverse Osmosis.

    I've considered the possibility that my water quality has changed. Seems like the only conclusion. However, I get live sphagnum growth. Usually an indication that water is okay.

    Thanks for the links. Didn't know all these changes were taking place.

    Man sorry to see this kind of damage : / I've seen Neps with the same results, sudden death. There's a thread started about the same mystery killer on a large Nep. The accused is a type of fungus.
    If you're interested I'm waiting for some unknowns to pitcher so I can ID from a list of possibilities, I'll be glad to send you some to get you back to growing some Sarrs.

    Hope you figure this one out : /

    Looking at the historical data it appears the amount of sodium has gone up, but there are only two or three years that they tested sodium. Still the highest is 53 ppm.
