To correct pH either acid (pH lower) or alkali (pH raise) is added to the nutrient solution. The acid or alkali should be diluted before addition to the solution to prevent a localised chemical reaction from occurring as it enters the water. Any reaction here can gradually precipitate out vital nutrients and alter the nutrient balance. It is normal to dilute to below 5 percent for this purpose.
