  • How much Hydroguard should I use?

    Created by Julie Schoolcraft on

    The information on the bottle reads to give 2ml/gal of water with every watering. Does this mean every time I top off the resevoir or every 4 hrs. when the hydroponic system feeds? Also, I followed a link on your site with a PDF. This info read give 5 to 10 ml/gal. I’m confused. Can you clarify?

    Hi Julie –

    I wasn’t sure, so wrote Botanicare and got the following response:

    Hydroguard is going to be a great product to help prevent root rot. This product is recommended to be used at a rate of 2 ml per gallon. You will want to add every time you top off your reservoir. You will not need to add every 4 hours unless you are adding new water to your reservoir every 4 hours. Please let me know if you have any other questions, I will be happy to answer!

    Hope it helps!
