What are Water Crystals? How do they Work?
With an ever increasing world population that is constantly using
up one of our most precious natural resources -water- WaterSmart
Crystals can be extremely useful in reducing this waste. Landscaping
and houseplants are a luxury, not a necessity and the least amount
of water used in upkeep is just one way for us to do our part in
WaterSmart Crystals are a completely non-toxic super absorbent
cross-linked polymer that is capable of absorbing up to 400 times
its weight in rain or irrigation water. As well it holds water-soluble
nutrients and fertilizers so they are not drained away into the
water table and are made available to the plant roots where they
These Crystals, when they come into contact with water, act like
tiny sponges. Absorbing several hundred times their weight in water,
they become water reservoirs that release their stores of water
etc. to your plants when needed. This reduces the need for watering,
saving you time, as well as making use of a much greater amount
of water, saving the environment.
Wherever you mix or place WaterSmart Crystals they will hold the
water, fertilizer and nutrients that you have put there for your
plants. The Crystals overcome the force of gravity, holding the
water in place, around the plant roots, where it can be used as
needed. WaterSmart Crystals work with nature keeping the use of
irrigation water to a minimum. This means conservation of our limited
water and in these times of ecological awareness that is a sensible
and responsible step.
WaterSmart Crystals allow you to reduce the amount of water used
for plants by 50% to 70%. The importance of this cannot be overstated.
Crystals remain effective for approximately five years, depending
on soil conditions, bacterial action and other chemicals. They add
nothing to the soil except what they hold in reserve-water, fertilizer
WaterSmart Water Crystals hold water exactly where it is needed,
around the roots, resulting in improved growth and survival. This
reduces or eliminates the stress placed on plants from under-watering,
over-watering as well as dry/arid conditions.
Studies done by researchers show that using Crystals in an agricultural
application appear to raise yields from 8% to 22% higher
than normal. These studies were done worldwide. At 8%
(the lowest) the Crystals are essentially paid for,
yet they are still working for years after. The next
years are clear profit. This makes WaterSmart Crystals
economically viable as well.
