Dissolve shells and keep them dissolved with continuous injection.


Convert Shells to available Calcium/nutrition for plant uptake.


Clean lines and keep emitter and spray heads operational.


Suppress not only corrosion, but also the toxicity of sodium and chloride.


Reduces sodium toxicity by liberating and increasing the percentage of beneficial nutrients.


Residual chemistry beneficial for calcareous soils.


Helps restore water/soil infiltration rate and depth.


Effective for Quagga, Zebra, Asianic and Mollusks.


Release bound up soil nutrients, gradually restoring soil operability of scale, metals and sodium toxicity.


Replaces sulfuric acid 9:1, N-pHuric acid 18:1 and sulfur burners. 

Shells are easily dissolved over time at 3 ppm WaterSOLVCURATIVE continuous injection, plus added WaterSOLV CURATIVE for the water hardness. 3 ppm is just 3 gallons per million gallons of water. As the shell is dissolved, it becomes soluble calcium for plant vegetation uptake, while not adding scale forming calcium to soils. Mussels from within the shell then release and pass through typical sprinkler strainers ending up as organic matter.


In some cases, bacteria can produce barriers that repel water as well as most acids, including WaterSOLV CURATIVE and sulfurous acids, which in turn can cause the need for WaterSOLV BC to break down these films, allowing the WaterSOLV CURATIVE to access and dissolve the calcium-based shells. See WaterSOLV BC details for its beneficial properties in water and shell development prevention.


The calcium and liberated nutrients in the soils by any unused WaterSOLV CURATIVE becomes visual through vegetation vitality and improved soil structure.


By getting WaterSOLV Treated water out, getting the treated water down, typically scale forming nutrients remain soluble with water for plant uptake and nutrition, generating healthy soils and robust vegetation, bushes, shrubs, even trees. Drip emitters stay unclogged and functional. Healthy soils make healthy vegetation. WaterSOLV products are certified for use in the production of food crops. 


Both WaterSOLV Products perform at a cost savings greatly outweighing the costs of the products through increased performance and efficiencies, namely water, soil and vegetation health and crop production while using an average of 12% less water, pumping costs and nutritional additives.


Initial treatment levels may require more chemistry to get the shells dissolved. Understand, this is free and very beneficial nutrition to have available in your soils for your plants. Once the shells become non-problematic, the application rate may be gradually reduced.    

Don’t be surprised if you have more shells at the end of the pipe line after depressurizing a system. Untreated water and water in pipe segments without flow may be holding shells that were never exposed to the chemistry. Depressurized systems allow the shells to fall into the mainstream that end up downstream.


Any spores that end up in the water lines (or wet wells), without treatment will usually find an eddy in the pipelines, harvesting minerals from the water to form shells.


The primary food source for the spores is sulfur and sulfate. Try to minimize sulfur and sulfate use in the water (POND) treatments. WaterSOLV BC is added to the wet well continuously to keep the water free of supporting the spores. 


Why shells are invasive in lakes and agriculture; in lakes, they destroy the biology, where a single adult mussel can purify one liter of water a day. In agriculture, they take all the beneficial necessary calcium away to build the shells.


Highly oxidative water reduces spore development into shells. Converting minerals and metals with WaterSOLV chemistry renders salts the spores cannot use to build the shells.
