Plant Applications

Algarid has helped many clients improve water purity, clarity, softness and quality.

Algarid treatment has also proved effective in reducing bacterial counts in water supplies for greenhouses , propagation (hot) houses, orchards and vineyards and has allowed the use of bore water to be extended. Slime growth (and the resultant blockages etc.) can be checked in most kinds of equipment, for example; irrigation equipment in the field or in greenhouses, hydroponics installations, heat exchangers, control valves, drippers, micro-jets, etc. Commercial growers have reported up to 90% lower maintenance and of less nutrients being required. Other reports indicate the mineralized water has had beneficial effects on both plants and soil providing healthier and higher yielding specimens and produce.

Striking results have been obtained by users in areas where problems are caused by high levels of iron in the water. Farmers report the elimination of iron staining on farm equipment (eg. In dairies), in domestic fixtures (eg. toilet pans & baths), and in washed linen and clothing after fitting an algarid unit to their water supply.

The low initial cost of the algarid, its high standard and quality, ease if installation, no chemicals, electricity or maintenance, complement its performance.
