HCT WaterSOLV™ - Turf Water Treatment Program
For those not familiar with our program it consists of primarily two chemicals, perhaps a third if sodium is a primary challenge, usually added continuously to the irrigation water. The products; Curative and BC (also Concentrate) are liquids and considered water treatment. Neither product is considered a nutrient or fertilizer though they operate like them through various chemical reactions as follows. Curative displaces the need for gypsum and sulfurous acids (reducing the acid demand volume upwards of 90%).
Convert water minerals normally associated to scale and compromised water and nutrition infiltration to available nutrition
Convert minerals, scale and bound up nutrition in the soils to available nutrition
Convert shells of mussels and snails to nutrition
Release calcium and chloride while detoxifying sodium impacting vegetation vitality of not only turf but all vegetation including shrubs and trees
Overcome anoxic soil conditions and biofilms that hinder infiltration and toxify vegetation
Add likely much needed chemistry to overcome black layer and iron matter while providing a continuous chemical soil aerification solution of dissolved oxygen minimizing the need for sod, sanding and aerification
Through infiltration, vitality and heat stress tolerance, reduce overall water demand +/- 10%
Clean and or keep clean water distribution lines, sprinkler heads and drip emitters
Provide a sustainable program that does not build up problems over time
Other features of the program include alleviating slosh, puddling, chronic brown spots, localized dry spots, flushing greens, converting cementation to nutrition, overcoming Fairy Ring, enhancing transition development, improving course uniformity and quality of play, providing available nutrition, hydration, heat tolerance and vitality to turf, shrubs and trees.
Both Curative and BC products are very similar to chemicals used in treating potable drinking water; muriatic (pool) acid and hydrogen peroxide. All the products change the traditional framework of agronomy relating to pH, solubility, infiltration and biology and are as concentrated as possible to optimize efficiency and minimize volume.
Surprisingly, just 1 gallon of Curative will displace 10 gallons of 94% sulfuric acid (1:10) and where in most cases just 3 gallons can easily treat over 1 million gallons water (just 3 ppm). We’ve yet to discover products that operate as beneficial including the BC for overcoming biofilms and also providing much needed oxygen into our soil profiles.
Both Curative and BC also contain Concentrate for the sodium and chloride remediation, all rendering salt as in sodium inert and non-toxic as well as restoring infiltration, all affecting turf, shrub and tree vitality while utilizing less water. The quality of play is stunningly improved with turf vitality, soil uniformity, response to nutrient uptake, infiltration, no puddling, alleviating spongy soil as well as improved transitions and winter seeding along with HCT;’s added quazi amino acetates and glycolates.
With standard treatment rates, the results are usually noticed at 90 to 120 days during the growing season, even on great turf and soil.
We deploy this technology to all forms of agronomy including turf, agriculture, nurseries and even rehabilitating drinking water wells for municipalities. One of the easier interpretations of the program is by hearing what our clients have to say and seeing our list of users. Following is a link to our YouTube Channel where we host most all our videos. One video in particular is the Fountain Hills video where we treat 100% reclaim water from a dead-end lake. Another is a compilation video of multiple golf courses. HCT, LLC - YouTube
Some of our users include Arizona Country Club, Papago Golf Course, Westbrook Village, Camelback Ranch, Goodyear Ballpark, Salt River Fields, SouthShore Las Vegas, The Club at Arrow Creek Reno, Cherry Hill Denver, Keno Sport Complex Tucson, Wild Horse Golf Club Ft. Worth Texas, Bakersfield Country Club, Starr Marriott, Ventana Canyon, Arizona National – about 80 sports turf facilities over the past 18 months following our initial 1 year of testing.
The same products are prescribed throughout, however at different percentages for water quality and the remediation of the minerals and biology in the soils, including shells from snails and or mollusks. Once soil conditions are improved, the added volume of chemistry is then discontinued. The amount of soil curation and rate at which it can be cured can be manipulated to meet the desires of management and budget.
The product can be tested and or evaluated with topical spraying, or by inexpensive wet well injection. We encourage you to contact our clients for references and look forward to the opportunity to be of service.
We need to understand a lot about your course, including current objectives, budget, soil, water quality, pump station(s), acreage watered, water usage and chemigation equipment. From this we will assess and calculate the needs, costs and even the desired rate of achieving the results which can be manipulated by chemistry rates. This will include application options and costs if any. This will modify your agronomic practices with respect to aerification, watering and nutrition.

Step 3: Send us a water sample so that we may do a total bacteria water test – 16 fl. ounces minimum, standard water bottle - take from intake at water source about 6 inches or more, below the top of the water. Be sure this is a good, flowing, non-stagnant water sample. Send it to the attention of;

Step 4: Basic Questions to complete assessment and recommendations – does not incorporate pump house chemigation questions of details that may be needed. This is attached as a separate document.
In return we will provide a detailed summation including application options for trial, low budget and full scope chemigation options.
Please, feel welcome to call, text or email if you have any questions. We have a tremendous amount of information on both our website and our YouTube channel.
Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to potentially serve you and your clients with our water treatment program for turf, soil, shrubs and trees.
