Nutrient Bad Smell coming after 5 days

kilimatsFebruary 21, 2008

My hydroponic setup has been smell free for the last 5 days but today it started to smell like used water, not a good smell.

I was wondering if it was maybe because i didn't monitor the Ph and EC of the solution, will having those parameter stable help with the smell ?

should i flush my solution every time it gets smelly ?

If you have bad odor, you likely have anaerobic activity somewhere.

Are you aerating the nutrient solution?
