Default right nutrients

Hi, I am new to Hydroponics and I have a question about nutrient solution.
Presently I am using Earth-juice Grow. I intend to use EJ-Bloom too but I haven't had my system for that long.
The NPK ratings are extremely low on these (2-0-1) and (0-3-1).
I have noticed that some chemical nutrients and even other organic nutrients have much higher ratings.
Can anyone tell me a comfortable level that I should experiment with.
Also, will doubling the amount of concentrate that I mix with water effectively double the right nutrients or will it raise some micronutrient to a lethal level?
Thanks so much. Ben Conley

Hi Ben
The nutrient I use (Formula One A & B) is 7-0-5 and 1-6-6 so I wouldn't worry to much about those numbers as long as it's formulated for hydroponics and not for dirt.
By adding more nutrient solution it will raise the N-P-K in equal amounts..
If you suspect that your nutrient solution is way off I would dump it and mix up a new batch.
