Absolutely not. Ecozen is safe for micro-life populations and only leaves trace amounts of necessary nitrogen and potassium in the planting medium.
ECOZEN is an off white milky color, If you measure ECOZEN and it appears clear or watery, most likely you haven’t shaken the bottle first. You should always shake every APTUS bottle gently before use.
ECOZEN does improve the flavor of fruits and flowers and it is highly regarded by many growers for its quality enhancing properties, but adding more than the recommended dose will not increase its effect. Increasing the dosage higher than 2 ml per gallon will only waste product.
ECOZEN is used to flush the planting medium of excess salts while leaving trace amounts of plant-required nitrogen and potassium in the planting medium. This action washes excess salt out and is completely safe for micro-life populations. SYSTEM-CLEAN is a hypochlorous acid which utilizes free available chlorine to clean the planting medium by chemical action. SYSTEM-CLEAN is best used in clean recirculating systems or hydroponics systems while ECOZEN is best used in drain to waste scenarios.
This is because the action of flushing with ECOZEN and water puts excess salts back into solution within the substrate and lets it flow outwards. The initial action of this process will read a high EC before it decreases and the excess salt finishes flowing out.
