Product Description

RainSaver Water Storing Crystals improve the capability of soils and growing media to retain water and plant nutrients. Placed in the root zone of plants they capture and store several hundred times their own weight in water and soluble compounds such as fertiliser. RainSaver is used in turf, landscaping, revegetation, nurseries, forestry, viticulture, olives, roses and potatoes

Features

  • RainSaver was designed specifically to improve the capability of soils and growing media to retain water and plant nutrients
  • On the introduction of water, crystals swell dramatically to become super absorbent sponges
  • 95% of absorbed water and nutrient is available back to the plant on demand through their roots, which grow directly into the water-swollen crystals
  • The water and nutrient retained in the crystal is for plant use only
  • RainSaver is effective for approximately 5 years
  • RainSaver has an essentially neutral pH
  • RainSaver has a gel strength three times higher than all other water crystals available today
  • RainSaver has the highest and fastest absorbency under pressure (soil pressure) meaning it absorbs the most water in actual use conditions
  • RainSaver has the highest stability with fertilisers, nutrients and salts and does not contaminate plants, soils or ground water
  • RainSaver is suitable for use in turf, landscaping, revegetation, nurseries, forestry, viticulture, olives, cut flowers and vegetables

How It Works

A mix of high tensions, cross linked potassium ammonium based copolymers (water crystals) which are small (800-2000 micron) free flowing white granules that resemble sugar crystals when dry. On the introduction of water they swell dramatically to become super absorbent sponges. Placed in the root zone of plants they capture and store several hundred times their own weight in water and soluble compounds such as fertiliser. 95% of absorbed water and nutrient is available back to the plant on demand through their roots, which grow directly into the water-swollen crystals.

Direction for use
