CITRIC DOWN will lower the pH level of your nutrient solution. The ideal pH for most hydroponic nutrient solutions is between 5.8 and 6.2, with some exceptions. Nutrient lockout will occur if pH levels are outside the optimal range.
Citric acid is a weak acid and while typically it will drop pH levels, its instability will cause the pH to raise back up over a couple of days. To counteract this instability, Citric Down contains stabilizers which help to keep the pH at the optimum range.
While lacking the strength of Phosphoric Acid based pH Down products, Citric Down is considerably more safe. None of its ingredients are listed by Transport Canada or the US Department of Transportation as dangerous goods, so there are no restrictions on shipping the product.
Suitable for soil, coco and hydroponic systems.
Compatible with most quality brand nutrients.
Check the pH level of your solution with a meter. Add small increments of Citric Down while mixing until you have reached your desired pH level.

Nutrients can freeze when exposed to cold temperatures. We protect your packages by shipping liquid nutrients with heat packs and faster shipping methods during the winter months. Depending on courier, your package may not be sent out until the following Monday to ensure it does not sit in a cold warehouse over the weekend. If your nutrients freeze, simply mix the entire bottle with an equal amount of hot water (preferably reverse osmosis or distilled water) and double your dosage. For detailed information CLICK HERE

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
When using in soil what amour do you use in water to affect the soil.. I have purchased citric down, want to lower soil oh to raise acidity but not sure how to apply to soil
You can add 1mL of Ctiric Down per gallon of water or nutrient solution and mix well. Check the pH of your solution and add more Citric Down (if needed) until you have reached your desired pH level. Saturate your soil with the solution. You can check soil pH with a soil test kit.
What is the effective shelf life in the sealed container.
Citric Down has a shelf life of at least 2 years
I found out I'm allergic to CI+Me - Isothiazolinone (MC/MI), Budesonide, and Hydrocortisone-17- Butyrate. Does this produce have any of these ingredients in it? Thank you, John
To the best of our knowledge, all of our products, including Citric Down, are free of these chemicals.
