Golf Course Water Treatment Installations
With several years pursuing turf clients, namely golf courses and sports turfs, the trends are revealing themselves. Some of the business we receive are GCS’s and Managers at the end of their rope, namely issues of infiltration, available nutrition and biofilms.
Texas Transformation 2018 to 2019 comparison - over 7,500 data points In Denton Texas, the property subscribes to Turf Dietitian weekly data analysis of soils and tissues. This study compares the elements from 2018 without the treatment to 2019 with the treatment. Most significant changes other than exceptional vitality – restored the infiltration on the greens (even flushing paint pigment), alleviated collar and fairway slosh, alleviated sodium burn of turf, shrubs and trees.
Split Green Study Florida – 8 weeks over 2,700 data points Experts in the field just couldn’t believe what they were seeing in the movement of elements through soils including and most significantly sodium and its detoxification. This led to the Split Green Study – 8 weeks of data, 1⁄2 of the green treated, the other half not treated. Over 2,700 data points.
GS7 Chemigation Systems Now Work with Wi-Fi
Please join me in congratulating Joe Wantulok and his team for taking what we refer to as the GS7 Chemigation System to next level – WiFi visible and operable from our cell phone or tablet, including tank level and rules-based alarms and notifications. How much peace of mind when you can log on from your cell phone and see how much water went out last night (or didn't) or check your tank levels from your desk. A two pump, two product delivery system at 1⁄2 the cost of a single sulfuric acid system. Plug and play – no bulk tanks, no bulk refills, no bulk tank replacement after +/- 10 years - just plug into your tote or drum and away you go – about 1 delivery a year and 1/10th the volume of chemistry. Safe, still acid but does not burn the skin.

Landscaping with HCT’s Splash Blend
Finally, the deteriorating fate of sulfuric acid and gypsum are revealing themselves with vigor in the landscape industry as well, where homeowners and associations are at their end of their rope trying to grow grass and maintain vegetation. These places show hard-pan, anoxic soil conditions, trees struggling to survive, plants with root rot, dealing with reclaim water, more unavailable nutrition additives, followed with costly aerification and sand, meager and diminishing results year over year. In cooperation with HCT Dealers and Distributors, Splash Blends are being produced, where both Curative and BC are offered in bulk in a single product, suitable in dilution in water for stability, as well as using the existing acid pumps and containers. Where reclaim water is considered substandard water, with WaterSOLV treatment it is loaded with vital nutrients and harvested for vegetation vitality. Some of the worst reclaim water is being treated and producing excellent turf, shrub and tree vitality with outcomes that are sustainable.

Congratulations Elite Acid and Ag Water & Diversified Products Big congrats to Elite Acid and Ag Water & Diversified Products for their exceptional successes in serving WaterSOLV Solutions to growers throughout the Central Valley of California. Over 90 installations this season and more to be done.
The story gets even better in recovery of their clients crops vitality and water penetration, at lower cost, sustainable reactions, and higher levels of product safety. The word is out, coffee talk as well appears to be spreading the word.
Elite acid is also operating as a service provider, serving the equipment and WaterSOLV needs for farms supply companies. We’d like to call out the names of some very special people in that arena as well, Steve Dugo, Scott Severson, Dante Rojas and the family at Mid Valley Ag.
We’re going nuts in more ways than one Blue Diamond had a great experience with us on a new crop, in hard water and difficult soils. The CCA commented that what impressed him the most after the first season was the tree uniformity. Well you know what that means, equilibrium, the plants are getting just about exactly the same nutrition throughout the block.
Everywhere we go we hear amazing overall results. And as the hora would have it, we engage with a nut grower who’d like us to participate in a thorough study – multiple A – B block evaluations, different areas of the Central Valley, along with other blocks yields prior year to this coming year with treatment. We’re looking forward to reporting the data, images and ROI.
Interesting relationships with Sodium and Boron
In conventional agronomy, boron toxicity gets blamed for a lot of toxicity, but in many cases, we’ve identified the sodium and chloride levels being overlooked. We’ll continue to log data and see where this will lead. Lots of good data on the internet, and lots of high boron, sodium and chloride under our treatment.
Sodium – Not to worry. Look at these soil levels without and with WaterSOLV
Is pH a driving force?
The more we learn about pH and the by-products of biology, the more we see that plants are what they drink. What is most readily available to them naturally are toxic (sodium, chloride and zinc), and bacteria form bio-films that restrict plants nutrition and hydration uptake and gradually toxify the plant with H2S. Likewise we completely overlook the saturation of salts in a solution regardless of the solution's pH value, where at zero pH you can’t dissolve soluble scale. Learn more about how pH impacts with our Vetting pH document.
