Sometimes you may find that you need to raise the pH of your nutrient solution. For instances like these, Growth Technology have designed a pH Up containing 25% potassium hydroxide (KOH).
It is available in 250ml and 1L bottles.
Warning: pH control chemicals are highly toxic and aggressive liquids. If pH Up and pH Down come into contact with each other they react violently and even small quantities they can be explosive. Make sure the two liquids NEVER come into contact with each other as this can cause a violent or explosive reaction. Please follow these simple guidelines for safety and peace of mind:
- ALWAYS store these materials in a safe place, preferably in a locked cupboard. Always keep them out of reach of children
- ALWAYS wear rubber gloves and protective goggles when handling any aggressive chemicals
- ALWAYS dilute pH control solutions before use
If it is accidentally ingested, seek medical advice. For more info on handling aggressive liquids, call our team on 0207 381 8334
