If you are working with City, Municipal or Well Water, follow what our Blue Crew has to recommend for you and your grow
When you are starting with these water options the FIRST STEP is to get your water tested. The process always begins in the lab. What we have seen over the last few years is a great influx of people looking for some knowledge about how to get started with their operation without the confusion of consultants or hours spent on the web - a water analysis from our lab crew is the first step! This way we can see exactly what is in your water (EC, pH, Alkalinity, and all the essential elements) this will help take the “guessing part” out of the equation and get you dialed in with Jack’s!
Have you ever had your water tested?
If the answer is YES, you are in great shape you can head on down to the PDF below and take a look at our source water parameters.
If you're thinking to yourself OH CRAP, I need to get it tested. No problem, get a sample taken and mailed into our JRP Laboratory as soon as possible so we can get you dialed in. Check out the sampling instructions and get the submission formed filled out and off to us.
TAKE A LOOK AT OUR SOURCE WATER PARAMETERS
If your source water contains less than 50 ppm calcium, our Blue Crew has two base formula options for you in a 1 BAG or 2 BAG SYSTEM. If it contains more than 50ppm calcium check out our JACK'S 15-5-20 PROGRAM.
12-4-16 IS WHAT YOUR GROW NEEDS
LOOKING FOR A 1 BAG FORMULA SYSTEM
For the Purist in you. This one part nutrient blend is designed for crops grown in very low alkalinity waters such as reverse osmosis (RO) water, rainwater, and distilled water. Formulated utilizing the innovative raw materials to reduce pH crash while delivering all the nutrients essential for vigorous plant growth.
LOOKING FOR A 2 BAG FORMULA SYSTEM
JACK'S 321 PROGRAM WILL GET YOUR GROW JACK'D UP
What is the Jacks321 Program? Jack’s 321 is our tried and true two-part fertilizer program. It consists of Jack’s Part A 5-12-26, Jack’s Part B 15-0-0 and Epsom Salts. BUT where does that “321” come from, you ask? It’s the shortened amount of each fertilizer in grams per gallon.
To mix up the perfect blend of Jack’s 321 you will need:
3.6 grams Part A
2.4 grams Part B
1.1 grams of Epsom salts
This will give you a blend of nutrients for growing almost any controlled environment crop, in any growing system. The order of additions is VERY important. You must add the 5-12-26 first and make sure it is completely dissolved, then add in the Epsom salts making sure it is completely dissolved, then finally the calcium nitrate.

The 15-5-20 Formula, was designed for tough source water that grew up on the
wrong side of the tracks. If you have 50 ppm Ca or more, 0.5 EC >, and high alkalinity in your source water. Then the 15-5-20 is the way to go!
