We can also inject CO2 to lower pH, watch this video to see what Mountain High Water can do for you.
Our system is an environmentally friendly, cost-effective, nonhazardous way to lower pH.
High pH has a negative effect on growing medium, nutrient availability, and the effect of fertilizer.
- Carbon dioxide is a gas which produces carbonic acid, a weak acid, when dissolved in water.
- Carbonic acid is a mild acid present in water as H+ and HCO3, which are highly reactive ions.
- The ions react immediately with alkalis such as caustic soda, sodium carbonate, and dissolved lime, turning them into neutral carbonates.
CO2 + H2O » H2CO3
H2CO3 + 2NaOH » Na2CO3 + 2H2O
H2CO3 + Na2CO3 » 2NaHCO3
Benefits of using CO2 gas to lower pH r:
- Safe to use
- Accuracy of regulation
- Low maintenance system
- Safe for the environment
