Ph out of control

by Hugo R H
(Woodside, NY, USA)

I recently started with 3 hydroponic tanks and once a week I check water level, nutrient concentration and Ph.
I found that ONE of the tanks is always ok and only need to add water, but in the other TWO tanks the Ph is extremely low. I correct the problem with PH-UP but I would like to have information as why this problem occurs in one tank and not in the other.
Thanks a lot for any help.

Answer from Stella/Simon:

Hi Hugo,
You really did not provide enough information for us to determine what might be going on with the pH in your nutrient tanks. Are they feeding three different hydroponics setups? If so, which types, what media are you using in each setup? What types of plants are in each of the grow beds?

You see what I mean? We have no way to even guess what might be going on with your nutrients.
Hope this helps!

I would bet that you have a bacterial problem , most probably due to a high water temperature. Make sure your res temp is below 21 degrees. Big ph drops are usually down to bacteria lime pythium. As for the comment of no info what more info do you need?
