Premium water quality is required to grow marijuana plants. Working with water filtration systems can benefit your grow operation by providing optimum water quality to your leaves, stems, and roots. The parts that are included- such as for a reverse osmosis system- are carbon filters, softeners, reverse osmosis systems, clean water storage, a pump, and fertigation systems.
Different companies specialize in providing home water purification systems, retail, or even wholesale marijuana systems for growers. These are designed with the science of pot growing in mind. Take for instance the 20” Waterite Sediment Filter, this will help you to produce very big and healthy-looking buds. Water filters are built to eliminate toxins such as chloramine, fluoride, and chlorine from the water that the plants are growing in.
Filters designed specifically for growing marijuana take into account that fluoride and chloramine need to be removed from the water as they are a large cause of inhibiting bud growth. Fluoride is commonly found in municipal water, though it is added for human dental health and for other reasons, it is unsafe for pot plants as it interferes with phosphorus uptake. When using filters, they will help to rid the water or chemicals and heavy metals which include anything from chloramine to nitrates, PCB, nitrites, chlorine, dioxin, TCE, glyphosate, lead, chromium, cadmium, arsenic, mercury, and so much more.
Nitrates will be ingested by a human and can be changed by our bodies’ system into nitrites. If you combine specific organics with nitrites this can create a substance with the potential to be carcinogenic which are called nitrosamines. Some of this in the water is known to greatly diminish the growth rate of your plants, you will see a decreased harvest and a smaller bud size due to these chemicals. A water filtration system will pay in the long run.
Bacteria that are in the water are a significant cause of a decrease in plant production. You can see as much as a 35% increase by providing a water filtration system for your marijuana. Test for bacterial infection, you may not find any however, there is still the requirement to daily disinfect in order to evade potential contamination that can happen on any given day.
