Do you have a way to adjust for the difference in dry nutrients concentrations between suppliers.
I guess, you will have to play in the inner code of the calculator.

Do you have infos on that and a way to download the calculator files. I have a local server that I can use to modify it to my specific concentration.

Great job by the way for all the calculators on your site, it really help.

Hi Patrick and thank you for your donation, that's very kind of you! And I am glad you like it, thanks for the nice comment :)

Well, yes, to change the value of single commercial products, the file database must be changed, and we could find a way to just allow the editing of the file-database if the user wants to, which I think, would allow you to accomplish what you are asking for.... but for the inner program, at the moment, it is not public and, at the moment, I don't think we have the intention to make it public.

Let' see if Jason reads this thread so he can comment on it. Jason, what do you think?

Thanks again.

Best.

I noticed important differences with compound of the same name but different companies. A possibility to edit the percentage on your calculator will make it really precise.

Good Day to All!

I will go with the most used, like:
KH2 PO4 (Monopotassium Phosphate 0-52-34) Mine is 52% Phosphorus and 34% Potassium
K NO3 (Potassium Nitrate 13,5-0-46) Mine is 13,5% Nitrogen and 46% Potassium
K2 SO4 (Potassium Sulfate 0-0-50) Mine is 50% Potassium & 17% Sulphur
MgSO4 (Epsom Salt) Mine is 10%t Magnesium and 13% Sulfur

I take these from a renown Canadian company specialize in hydroponic — https://hydrodionne.com

Looking around I can see that product coming from different origin have the same name (eg; KH2 PO4) but can differ in concentration. If your calculator will leave the user modify these concentration to reflect their own products it will be great.

That's a great idea Patrick. Hopefully this can be implemented.
Also living in Thailand we have a micro mix here called NIC-SPRAY. If this one could be added to the calculator it would be great. Here is the composition of the product as well as the picture.
