Convert Reclaim Water and Shells to Nutrition through Chemical Addition
Case Study from Todd Eden at HCTLLC
Las Vegas August 2019
This is some of the toughest reclaimed water we’ve seen out of hundreds of samples though we have seen much worse ground water in places like Texas. This is a 15 year cycle dead end lake, 100% reclaimed water that goes into this dead end pond with no overflow and forced evaporation by means of the world's formerly tallest water fountain at the Town of Fountain Hills, AZ
It’s only previous water treatment has been air bubbles in the lake, no treatment to the turf or the soil where the objective was to grow healthy grass utilizing this water. While physical aerification of the soil would help achieve infiltration, the soil had become physically inpenetrable. Taking a soil sample of any magnitude was more than a challenge. The water itself looked like pea soup even though to our surprise it has no bacteria. Once on the WaterSOLV Program treating the water only a few parts per million, the once 20% grass coverage quickly increased to 90+%. No fertilizer. No aeration. WaterSOLV and 100% reclaim.
Let’s take a look at this water:
Calcium at 170 ppm - 425 ppm as CaCO3
Magnesium 160 ppm - 656 ppm as CaCO3
Both beneficial to vegetation when available and harmful when complexed and therefore unavailable.
The combination of calcium and magnesium is also expressed as total hardness.
Next we have combined sodium and chloride over 1,730 ppm.
Sodium at excessive levels is toxic to plants. It is also the most soluble mineral. Chloride is toxic as well. So when it rains, our turf (shrubs and trees) get oxygenated rain and sodium water for hydration, less the necessary minerals and metals.
When we find sodium and sodium chloride and calcium chloride at excessive levels in our soil we can assume that when we hydrate those soils we will dissolve the crystals put them back in the solutions and plants uptake this toxic solution.
So when we see sodium, the most soluble mineral in excess in our soil we almost always have an infiltration problem and the sodium is not able to flush. This is often due to either complex scales in the soil or insoluble materials or films of colonies of bacteria and or slime.
Sulfate aka Sulfur is normally not a problem, until you have bacteria on top of it. Notice there is no line for bacteria in our water or soil analysis. If water does not have bacteria it is not going to use the sulfate as a food source to form colonies aka black matter aka the odor of rotten eggs and stinky feet aka hydrogen sulfide gas that is also toxic to plants.
These colonies are especially insidious as they can form a protective polymer when treated with good water or traditional chemistry. We call it slime or biofilm, it’s technically a polysaccharide protective layer that is extremely resistant to strong and weak acids from phosphoric to citric to sulfuric to chlorine, even pH adjusted chlorine. It’s like plastic wrap, almost impossible to get rid of; until now.
All these nutrients accumulating means they are not being absorbed and they cannot flush.
Just like when you shock a swimming pool, you have to brush the sides to remove biofilm or you just won’t get lasting great results. We used to wish we could brush our irrigation lines until we created a peroxide based product that changed everything.
