Nitrates?

So we used the dipstick 5 in 1 thingy to check the different levels in our water and the nitrates are REALLY low...how do you enhance nitrates???

I highly suggest having liquid tests instead if strips. MUCH more accurate.

You want more nitrates? Thats a first. You want to keep them as low as possible (under 10ppm).

alright thanks.

so low nitrates are fine then? we don't need to worry about that being low?

Everything else is okay. I actually have a pH water testing machine at home I may bring back with me (my dad used to do stuff that required water testing).

Thanks!!

Just as long as they are there, the lower the better.
