I re-use my Sunshine #4 but first I spread it out on a sheet of plywood and dust it with agricultural lime.

Any time you can land on your plants desired pH without having to alter the nutrient mixture with pH up/down tends to be a good thing.

I wouldn't rely on silica alone to adjust pH upward in all cases, I tend to keep it within the brands suggested application rates. I use DynaGro ProTeKt and tend to stay between 1.25 and 2.5ml/gal in my drain to waste grow, your product may suggest another range for whatever grow style you are using.

If you run a reservoir and pump where you are topping off a system with freshly mixed nutrient solution...precipitation should not occur.

However...

When you are putting that top off mixture together silica should be first, followed by Calmag (if used), then base nutrients, then supplements, then pH the whole lot.

Thanks for the tip.

I was mixing my silica last for a while and notice it goes cloudy, now I know why.

I've got it down where I use bit of silica in RO water then calmag then base nutes and it usually is bang on 5.8-6.0 PH - love when don't have to adjust PH.

If you're pretty well dialed in, only change one thing per run. That way you can see and control the results of your change.
For example, I changed my lights and my water at the same time. When I had problems, it was hard to diagnose and make adjustments.
