This PH up/down solution is 0-0-9, and at 1/2 tsp/gal per point...

That's what i've never seen before, not the mixing of Ph Up/Down with nutes, but the fact the Ph balancer has an NPK ratio??

Another thing that's weird to me is 1/2 tsp gal per point of Ph?  I use the GH Ph down and it doesn't even give you an estimate on how much to use.  I generally use a 1/4 tsp per gallon and that's enough to drop my 7 ish water right down to around 6.

Yea I've never seen an NPK on pH stuff either, I was guessing he was referring to the potassium citrate or carbonate in pH up :shrug:

... but I don't think that is the same K as the nutritional K the plants use.

Yeah... I just realized I don't have a camera for about another week otherwise I'd take pics... But basically the label reads:

Available Nitrogen            0%
              Phosophorus      0%
              Potassium          9%

              Directions for Use:
  Mix 1/2 teaspoon per Gallon of water
to adjust pH one full point. Contents are
      concentrated, use sparingly.

And they're wrong... It takes about 7 drops of it to move my PH 1 point.. To correct for bloom nutes was about 3/8 tsp...

Anyway, yeah I don't get it... but the stuff works so I can't say I'm not going to use it..
Man, I feel like I have the weirdest problems...
