50% water changes for EI dosing
Apologies for opening a new thread regarding this concept, but the current one discussing these merits wandered a bit too far for me to ask the following:
Are those with tanks larger that 90 gallons really buying all of that fertilizer and nutrients and then pouring an unknown portion of it down the drain at the end of the week?
And are those who truly believe in this regiment with +180gal tanks really preparing 90 gallons of RO water per week, or just using well or tap water. Preparing 90 gallons of RO water uses nearly 450 gallons of actual water given 4-to-1 waste.
I get the concept of not having any limiting nutrients, but does not limiting up to point of detrimental, not beyond, warrant that use of water resources for those in the west or southwest in the US. Europeans I would presume have more water than they need.
Would I be a fool or naive for just observing the plant life and then acting accordingly even if not an exact science?
