Andy, It will be real interesting to see if the ciritc acid injection system works ..seems like it would work well. However, on a growing plant, I think I would not go below a 6.0. You want subtle change, not sudden change. If the 4.0 is too low, you risk losing your plants if it balances the soil out to just right and your plants suddenly start to thrive, you risk splitting your pumpkin. I would especially try to put a more balanced ph of 6.5 to 7 on your leaves. The 4.0 might work well to balance the soil out well ahead of the plant or during off season. Just my opinion gradual changes have worked well in my patch sudden changes haven't.Ron
