Boost your productivity
|You can expect to see greener, healthier, more robust growth with less water.The better ‘wetting action’ of conditioned water breaks up soil clods and improves soil texture (as you can see above) by surrounding individual soil particles with tiny droplets of conditioned water. Not only does your soil become more permeable but it is able to retain its moisture content for longer periods.|
In fact, lab tests have shown that soil soaks up conditioned water 84% faster… simply because the mineral particles in conditioned water are reduced to a smaller size.
By improving the permeability, unwanted salts which previously accumulated around the root zone and in the soil, are flushed well below the roots and do not reform. Stressing to the plant is relieved with the salts removed. Now your plants can extract the nutrients they crave from the soil.What’s more, mineral particles and salts in conditioned water no longer adhere to the leaves to the same degree and so leaf burn is reduced considerably.You’ll notice improved growth in weeks – sometimes days.
But here’s where it gets even better…
Because conditioned water is absorbed more rapidly into the ground, evaporation is reduced so you need less water.
We suggest reducing your watering time by up to 20%. Indeed, some customers report water savings of 30%.
As one very happy farmer said… “Care-Free is the best thing since polythene pipe”.
Watch how Care-Free helped these irrigation farmers…
“Care-Free saved my farm”
Wayne Edwards is one happy farmer. In his own words, “Care-Free saved my farm”.
If you’re an irrigator and experience hard water problems, be encouraged by what Wayne has to say in this short video.
Wayne is an organically certified vegetable grower. He now produces fantastic results growing potatoes, onions, broccoli and cauliflower from 2600EC bore water. He has a Care-Free Water Conditioner on each of his three centre pivot irrigation systems.
$80,000 loss in broccoli crop before installing Care-Free
“With our salty dam water we couldn’t afford NOT to have a Care-Free Conditioner. In fact, Care-Free is too cheap for what it does” – Brad Ipsen.
Prior to fitting a Care-Free Water Conditioner, Vegetable Grower, Brad Ipsen had $80,000 losses in two months due to his broccoli crop being unsalable.
Since installing four Care-Free Conditioners, Brad has seen tremendous increase in his crop despite the 2800mg/lit salty dam water.
• 20% crop increase
• Salt scald disappeared on soil surface
• 10 day turnaround in the crop
“It’s amazing. We’ve had a 20% crop increase since installing our Conditioners”.
Care-Free cuts insecticides by 90%
“The first thing I noticed was Care-Free reduced the frequency of spraying our broccoli for Diamond Back moth from 2-3 times a week to once per month – a reduction of 90%” – Gary East.
For Vegetable Grower, Gary East, chemical savings alone more than paid for his Care-Free Water Conditioner in the first year of use.
“Our agronomist was very impressed by the colour and quality of our crop.”
Helping you make the impossible… Possible
Growing melons in the 4,000mg/l salt water was impossible prior to installing a Care-Free Water Conditioner. However the melons thrived on the “conditioned” water and there was no evidence of salt-encrustation around the entire dripper system for drip irrigation.

Awesome water and fertilizer savings
New evidence proves ‘Care-Free water’ penetrates the soil vertically, direct to the root zone… reducing lateral water wastage by 55%
Check out these fantastic photos and results of a drip irrigation system in Tijuana, Mexico.
Without Care-Free the wetted area measured 68 cm… so more than half the water and fertilizers were wasted.
With Care-Free the wetted area was reduced by 42% to 40 cm in the first watering cycle. By the third cycle it was reduced by 55% to 30 cm. This resulted in tremendous water and fertilizer savings.
You too can expect to see greener, healthier, more robust growth with less water.
