Water Treatment for Grow Operations

“Hydroponic Cannabis” simply refers to plants grown using nutrient-rich water solutions and growing mediums such as rockwool, clay pellets, and coconut fiber. It’s a fact of life that all plants need water and, much like humans, plants require clean water to grow healthy. Before you begin cultivating your commercial growing op, it’s important to invest in the best water filtration system for you and your plants.

Without a clean water source, your cannabis plants will slowly die. In order to raise healthy cannabis plants, you need a top of the line water treatment system installed. Water molecules have the potential to carry a lot of nasty nutrients that can easily harm your cannabis plants. This will quickly kill your plants if you are not being careful.

The Importance of Your pH and PPM Measurements

When conducting your grow op, you should be aware of your pH (potential hydrogen) levels and PPM (parts per million). The pH level is used to measure the acidity and alkalinity of a fluid. To keep your cannabis plants healthy, you need to keep your water’s pH levels between 6-7. Too much acidity or alkalinity can easily kill your plants, costing you money.

The PPM level measures the presence of dissolved solids in water. This measurement shows what percentage of your water contains contaminants, including:

  • Chlorine
  • Rocks
  • Bacteria
  • Uranium, and more.

  • Water that contains a lot of these contaminants is referred to as “hard water”. Water without a lot of these contaminants is referred to as “soft water”.

    The Marijuana Water Treatment Process

    Understanding the process through which your water treatment system removes particles and pollutants is beneficial for your cannabis grow operation. Whether you’re already a medical marijuana grow operation or you’re thinking about how to grow cannabis, Besco Commercial has a wide array of water treatment options to ensure the water you are feeding your plants is of the highest quality.

    reverse osmosis systems in place

    Even though reverse osmosis systems are typically avoided in the commercial agriculture industry, these systems are necessary when it comes to cultivating marijuana. Reverse osmosis systems filter out any unwanted chemicals in your water supply.

    The process begins with water molecules being forced through a semipermeable membrane. The contaminants and waste are then rinsed to the drain while the refined water is filtered into a holding tank. This helps the water look and smell better. Reverse osmosis systems are very effective at filtering out contaminants for cannabis growing operations.

    Medical Marijuana Commercial Hydroponic Systems

    Choosing commercial hydroponic systems for water treatment is becoming an increasingly popular decision in grow operation set up. Commercial hydroponic systems can affect several variables within your growing op including temperature, humidity, and energy consumption.

    With all the available hydroponic systems, you can reuse your grow media while monitoring the pH levels and precisely controlling what nutrients the plants are receiving. In turn, this can affect the overall yield and performance of your marijuana grow op, resulting in healthier and more potent buds.

    Cannabis cultivation requires different frequencies and amounts when it comes to watering your plants. These frequencies and amounts are determined by factors including temperature and light, as well as age, size, and stage growth of the plant. Your operation first needs the cleanest water quality possible. Besco Commercial can provide just that.
