Ive never used haifa, but i would use a company name to contact them, it could be anything like Khmer hydroponics. The only complaiints I have read about using sulfuric is the smell when mixing it down to use for ph adjustment. Acid is acid when you get down to it. Haifa is a large multi national supplier with pre-mix and individual fertilizers. If you look under products-plant nutrition-water soluable you will see alll their choices. The good thing is you are prob getting much higher grade fertilizers than what we buy in small amounts here from a store.

Hello All, WESCO is an International Co. if I read it right, if so,

the also have offices in SQ and VN. I've never followed this as

I can and do get my chem's here. I also haven't done green's here

as I've been able to buy hydro greens at several places here in

Korat. That will be changing here on the farm after the Hot season.

WESCO is one of the largest of ag chemical suppliers in TH and

probably the largest supplier for hydro chems in TH.

The sell Haifa and other brands. I contacted Haifa in BKK before

on getting micros, The only sale large quantity and that goes to

large fertilizer Co's. Unless you want 100kg of each micro. In LOS,

there's really no wholesale like in the west, unless your talking

containers sales.

Back to the up/down thing, Wesco should sell it, Accent, ACK, Fresh

Gardens and Bangsai all sell it in their stores here, but if your paying

to ship a liquid, you should get the strongest % you can.

The address for the Haifa office in BKK was close to Soi Cowboy

on Asoke.

Nice looking setup you have threre!!!

I have found Sulfuric Acid here in Korat, forgot the %, it was high.

But it was about U$43. @ 3L, from a chemical supply store.rice555

Wesco thailand isnt an international company they resell branded fertilizers such as basf, haifa,omnia, and of course their own branded mixes thats it. They source everything from places like Haifa and make their own. I guarantee you I can buy all the bulk chemicals they do straight from china and make them just like they do at wholesale prices too. I sent haifa a price request we will see if 100 kg is the minimum I personally dont believe that one, oh and by the way their address in bkk is right on the webpage.. And where did you get that ridiculous price for acid ? Ever here of the auto parts store ? Do you make commission off of wesco's high prices ? because I seem to see you tout them in every post when there is clearly better alternatives to buying hydro supplies.

@rice555 @Hereinthailand Thanks so much your input and helpful post.

 

I'm trying with Sulfuric Acid now, it's 33.2%. I mixed the ratio of 50ml of acid with distilled water 950ml to make a 1.67% pH down.

It costs me $15 per 3L jug of sulfuric acid.

 

If the minimum of 100kg of micro, that's too much out of my range. That's a lot for me at least in my current scale.

I'll follow up to get more useful info.
Thank you!

"Do you make commission off of wesco's high prices ?"

I think that if you would have read my posts on several of the hydro threads, I get my main

chem's(25kg bags) here in Korat, not from WESCO. WESCO is the only place that had micro's,

both in the sulfites and chelated and had solubor and moly, so why do you think I bought from

them? I can only find chelated Cu and Fe off the shelf here in Korat.

"Wesco thailand isnt an international company" there are several "WESCO" co's, not the same

as the BKK one, I misread from one line to another link an thought it was the same, my error.

I grow 4-600 plants main season, all run to waste, the waste is used in the garden.

I've contacted Haifa before, they don't sell micro's to small growers, he did say the sell to CT(True, 7-11), yes that Chai Tai Group guy.

And as I said, Haifa Asia office is across Suk from Soi Cowboy.

I have said that it is best to call or fax to ask questions, @'s get very poor results. Jungle Biker ran into that problem with WESCO and many other people have had the same. In this day

and age, a Fax might work.

I don't have the phone number handy, the the chemical supply co here in Korat sales food and lab grade chems, not industrial. That was the price they showed me on their price list with the

item in front of me. I was looking for a wash for cleaning PC-drip tape and PC-drip emitters on

cleaning cycles.

Had to go find the most extreme ads to prove your point didnt ya ? lol. Loser.

No, you said cheap from CN and "you" said Haifa Asis, did you not?

And I be leave that the CN chems is FOB ++.

The smallest amount I found was 5 tons, but the price was higher.

Hi ! Anyone know of a good, full range, aqua- and hydro-ponics company/shop in Chiang Mai, with good quality/service and decent prices.

Anyone into solar powered pumps?

Seems they have some fairly neat DC motors that hook up straight to the solar panels. Probably expensive.

What is the rationale for using distilled water, instead of filtered or tap water ?

Hi All !

Anyone know of a good hydro- and aquaponics shop in Chiang Mai ? Both for equipment, organic liquid nutrients and seeds...

I bought from a CM based shop, at the Khon Kaen agro-show a couple of years ago, but have since lost the info...

Thanks & Cheers, Chris

P.S. Shops in Phetchabun and/or Phitsanulok areas, would also be of high interest.

Just for the purity of diluted sulfuric acid. We don't other substance that could react with the lead acid.

Filter or RO water might still contain other substance not with distilled water.
