Water pH

Anonymous added on December 5, 2011 | Answered

The water in my area is extremely hard. It is full of calcium and other minerals that drive the pH to 7. 5+. Is there a way to counteract this without having to add acid to the water every time? This is for outdoor plants and trees.

One of the best ways to combat this issue is by using rainwater collected from a rain barrel or other large container. If this is not an option for you, then try using distilled water or allow your water to sit for a day or two before using it on your plants.
