It's Unlocking the Soil; It's Unlocking Everything

“Everybody told me this year I was nuts for shaking them. I said ‘can’t leave the nuts in the tree.’ Usually you’re lucky if you get a second harvest. And we got over 950lbs per acre."


3 Years of Success with WaterSOLV™ | Westlawn Ranch, CA


I'm Christopher Frith, Ranch Manager at Westlawn Ranches. I oversee day to day operations.


We’ve been on (WaterSOLV™) for our third year now.


I was skeptical. We had a couple blocks that we couldn't get water to penetrate. We would see the water come up on the berm and it would just puddle off. Dave Rose (WaterTek Ag) said he had new product, and that I was going to love it but I blew him off for about a month and he called me back (to follow up).


Production was slowly falling and so I said 'ok, I’ve got a block, lets try it in there'. And three months later I said pull out every acid tank we’ve got; let's do it all.


I watch what the plant is doing, what the vine looks like, what the tree looks like and how it’s uptaking.


Knowing it's there, having everybody come out and do soil samples and saying, ‘Oh yeah, you’re good! You've got everything!’ And yet you look at the plant and it's not responding because it can't pick it up.


We had cups down at the bottom of where the drippers were. We got in there and all my drip lines were plugged up. I had my guys flush it. We took off every riser, blew the lines out, we went to the end of the row where there was all kinds of calcium broken down and everything else that had been stuck in the lines.


From the underground lines to the drip tube; everything was gone. We opened it up and we had piles of scale.

It usually would take us a good day to a day and a half to check water. The guys would go through and find a sprinkler all plugged like this and all they would do is spray because they would be all plugged up with calcium.


Now the guys can go through with a bamboo stick and they drive along and tap any that are not working like they should be, instead of having to take them off and at 90 cents per piece replace them.


Like I said, a few months later, every acid tank on this ranch was gone and we are 100% WaterSOLV™ now.


It's a great product. I kinda swear by it now and I tell my neighbors to get off that acid. Get off that sulfurous acid!”

While issues are universal their causes are complex and specific. That's why we created our own soil and water testing matrix to create custom prescriptions for our customers that are aimed at solving the source of problems, and reducing the need not only for wetting agents, sulfuric acid, gypsum and manual aerification, but reducing the need for our chemistry as well. Most of our long term users are on maintenance programs using just 3-6 ppm of a custom blended chemistry injected directly into their irrigation system.


From turf to wells to agriculture, WaterSOLV™ is challenging conventional water and soil treatment practices and solving problems previously thought to be manageable at best.


HCT's purpose and privilege is providing sustainable and cost effective solutions to the chronic problems that plague soil health in the world of water and agronomy. We consistently reduce water demand 15% and increase crop yields 18% and more. When you treat water ‘well’ with WaterSOLV you increase efficiency, decrease costs, increase yield, improve pore space and add oxygen chemically. We can show you how to restore soil infiltration and soil operability just by treating your water and for substantially less than you're spending now.
