The gardener I learned from lived in the flats. I no longer remember all the the exact numbers but pH was 8.2, calcium was pushing 300 ppm and iron was pushing 450 ppm. Many others were elevated as well.

My home garden is in the hills and did not do as well using same nutrients and light schedule.
Testing showed 7.1 pH, 175 ppm calcium, 50 ppm magnesium, trace arsenic (among a long list of trace minerals), and no iron.

After adjusting nutrient percentages the garden began producing larger harvests and stronger plants.

Tap water from municipalities should not have that large a variance but it can be large enough to affect plant growth.

12/12 rooms back to back

I had 1 big room and heat and humidity in a tropical climate so i partitioned the room ,only 1 AC on the end wall.
set the light timers 12/12 back to back and in and out 6 inch duct fans in the partition wall constant full speed.
I didnt use ac in the separate veg room it ran fine with humidity n high temps with venting in n out to outside tropical.
Strange thing is The quality of flowering plants was way better than when id used bottled c02 in a single flower room.
So i put an ac in the mothers/veg room and linked air circulation to the 12/12 rooms ,veg got much better lights timed 16 hrs on split between the 2 12 hr room timing
Then i noticed the humidity evened out at 65%
Also the greatest increase apart from health increases in plants beyond good occurred ,The cuttings started rooting in 6 days in a unheated basic propagator vents open just lodged between vegging plants and didnt need weaning off propagator humidity in grow atmosphere because they had lid removed at start of dark period and then just slightly shaded by previous cuttings that where vegging
Due to timing i did away with mothers ,and just took cuttings of veg plants a day before moving into flower rooms still getting cuttings rooting in 6/7 days plant quality the best ive had.
So i had enough room for vegging in ex mothers space.
I AM SURE C02 GIVEN OFF BY PLANTS IS SOMEHOW BETTER THAN BOTTLED C02
Plants where all 1 phenotype from 1 original mother.A

Plants do not give off C02, they consume C02 and give off oxygen.

You may have had your bottled C02 levels too high, anything over 1200ppm can stunt growth, especially if you aren't venting regularly.
