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 cannabis growing operation, it’s essential to invest in the best water and water filtration system for you and your plants.
That’s where Besco Commercial comes in. We offer tailored water treatment services to fit your needs perfectly. Plus, we do it all while staying dedicated to providing top customer care.
Your Steps to for the Right Water Treatment for Your Grow Op
There are a number of businesses out there that will just ask you how many plants you want to grow and sell you lights, platforms, and various other necessities for setup for your grow operation. These companies are not tailoring what they offer to fit your needs, and it will hurt your product. Instead, follow these steps to get the proper water treatment for your grow op:
Get a water analysis done by a professional. Water chemistry is different in different areas, so this is a vital first step. Avoid any company with a one-size-fits-all approach to water treatment for grow operations.
Determine what pretreatment is needed. This can be done with the professional you are working with to get your water analysis. There may be a few options, so speak to them in-depth about what can be done and how to do it.
Install the correct capacity and flow rate of high-purity water. Be sure to go with a company that offers 24/7 emergency service to ensure that you are always protected.
Before buying equipment, be sure to call us here at Besco. We can handle each of these steps to get you the water treatment services that are tailored to work efficiently for your grow operation. We offer 24/7 service and are always just a call away.
Water Cannabis Plants with Reverse Osmosis
For a commercial grow operation, a reverse osmosis water filter system is considered the best option for sourcing water for growing cannabis at a commercial level.
Reverse osmosis systems are typically avoided in the commercial agriculture industry but have proven to be necessary when it comes to growing cannabis. Unfiltered water molecules found in tap or distilled water 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 careful.
Using reverse osmosis filtration is the most cost-effective and reliable way to ensure consistent, pure water quality for your plants.
The process begins with water molecules being forced through a semipermeable membrane. The contaminants and waste are then rinsed into the drain while the refined water is filtered into a holding tank. This helps the water look and smell better. Reverse osmosis systems are excellent at filtering out contaminants for cannabis growing operations.
Treating water using a reverse osmosis system will guarantee clean water for your plants.
The Importance of Your pH and PPM Measurements
Something to consider with the commercial water treatment you go with for your grow operation is the pH and PPM measurements of the water you use with your plants.
You should always 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 quickly 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, such as:
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”.
Obviously, this is complex. That’s where we come in. Our professionals will take a look for you to determine the best course of action for your business.
