Type of water in substrate?
    #369286 - 08/09/01 03:20 PM (16 years, 4 months ago)

What type of water is best used in substrate preparations, tap, mineral, spring...?

Thanks in advance!

I use tap water and have no problems with it. Hell I even dunk cakes with water directly from the tap. But I guess it depends on where you live.

correct me if this is a bad idea, but... I've had a lot of luck (against contams) using Distilled Water.

My girlfriend got a tongue ring a couple years ago, and when she got it done, they recommeneded that she only drink distilled water as not to introduce bacteria to her tongue. So figured it would be good enough for boomers too.

Coincidence or not, I seem to lose 2-3 / 12 jars when I use tap water, and haven't lost a jar using distilled water.

Luck or not, it seems to be working. I like the idea of spring water though, sounds a lot more natural, but... I've never used it :(

I use fresh Mt. Elphie spring water from a spring on my property but in the past I've also used well water, city water and creek water. They all seemed to work ok if boiled first.

most often i just use a brita filter on my tap water and that is fine. and anything you buy is a bottle is also pure.

I always use spring water that's been boiled and cooled.

I belive it is jsut water that has been sitting for a while so that all the crap in it settles to the bottom and is removed. However i am high myself so this may be wrong.

Actually even bottled drinking water may have some impurities, I like the distilled water idea just to be safe. It also doesn't cost any more than spring water. With the ever increasing number of polluted lakes and rivers, I would also discourage using water from these sources. Simply boiling such polluted waters doesn't make it pure.

I just tried somthing new,Life O2 Super Oxygenated water.I would think it would be a good thing to use a water that has been suplemented with extra Oxy.Atleast I hope so,Because I used for all of my new batch.Any comments would be apprecieted.

Marketing, 13, any extra oxygen will be cooked off during sterilization. I'm afraid miracle cures don't apply to cultivation.
