Q: How should I use Essentials LAB pH- to adjust the pH level of my nutrient solution? 
A: First, carefully check the pH of your nutrient solution. If the pH reading is too low, then the solution is too acidic. Add a small, measured amount of Essentials LAB pH+ to your nutrient reservoir and mix thoroughly. Check the pH level again and note how much it has changed. You now know how much a certain dosage of Essentials LAB pH+ has raised the pH in your reservoir, and from this you can judge how much more, if any, you need to add to achieve the desired pH level. 

Q: The pH level of my solution is already high. What should I do? 
A: If the pH is within the recommended range, you should do nothing. But if the pH is too high, then you should use Essentials LAB pH- to adjust it to a lower level, within the recommended range.
