WaterSmart Crystals will Improve soil conditions
Crystals will significantly improve water holding capacity of sandy
much as 400%!!! They also increase infiltration rates of water through
clay soils as they constantly expand and contract when absorbing
and releasing water. This not only keeps your clay soil looser but
also makes growing plants in this hard to handle soil a pleasure.
2) WaterSmart Crystals Reduce the Need for Frequent Watering
When properly applied, WaterSmart Crystals can reduce the need
to water by 50 - 70% in potted plants, 15 - 40% in lawns and golf
courses, and in the 20 - 40% range for most irrigated field crops.
The hydrated crystals will reduce the stress/dry periods in all
plants by increasing the availability of reserve water stored for
them in the crystals. The water stored in the crystals is 96 - 99%
available to plants.
3) WaterSmart has Superior Absorption Rates
Crystals absorb approx.400 times their density in de-ionized water
and in the 150-350 range in more salty soils. This means, practically,
that one pound of crystals will absorb and hold from 15 to 40
gallons of water in the soil.
4) WaterSmart Reduces the Loss of Fertilizers and Nutrients
Crystals absorb, store and release soluble fertilizer and nutrients
almost as readily as it handles water. This means a decrease in
losses due to leaching which translates to better use of your fertilizer
(especially nitrogen) and added nutrients.
5) WaterSmart Promotes Germination and Early Growth
When Crystals are placed in the seed row, emergence is increased
for most plants, as well as early growth and survival of seedlings
6) WaterSmart Works Great for Trees and Shrubs.
Powdered Crystals make an excellent, inexpensive bare-root dip
that promotes survival in transport and the transplanting of tree
and shrub seedlings, and larger crystals provide extra, long-term
water storage for the tree and shrub root systems when used for
7) WaterSmart Crystals Last a Long Time
Crystals have superior longevity. They have been found to be more
than 95% effective after five years in stable soil. Therefore the
conclusion that the life span of the crystals is much longer can
8) WaterSmart Crystals are of the Highest Quality
We believe our Crystals are the finest all-around water-absorbing
polymer in the world. With the qualities they impart in the cultivation
of both outdoor and indoor plants they can increase plant health
as well as yield.
9) WaterSmart Crystals are Economical
Due to the previous high cost of Crystal polymer in the United
States, its use has been primarily limited to nursery and houseplant
applications. Now, with lowered overhead as well as our large scale
manufacture process, we are making it available for most applications.
This includes of course larger scale uses such as landscaping and
10) WaterSmart Crystals Increase the growth Rates of Plants
Studies done by researchers show that using WaterSmart Crystals
in an agricultural application appear to raise yields from 8% to
22% higher than normal.
Using WaterSmart Successfully
WaterSmart Crystal's long life span, proven high performance, and
low cost combine to make it practical and profitable. Our Crystals
have literally hundreds of agricultural, landscaping, re-vegetation,
turf, gardening and houseplant applications. But always remember-
more Crystals are not necessarily better, and correct applications
in the right places are EXTREMELY important to achieve maximum performance.
WaterSmart Crystals are most effective when the correct amounts
are worked uniformly into the soil areas where the plant's feeder
roots normally grow.
