DRiWATER, manufacturer of pioneering water-conservation technology, is bringing relief to gardeners, homeowners, and farmers who are struggling to keep their plants alive while practicing responsible water management. DRiWATER, manufactures DRiWATER, water bound in gel form, that slowly releases moisture into soil over time. The product, which comes in several convenient packages, is used to irrigate plants in commercial and retail markets.
As drought conditions are expected to persist well into the fall in some areas and a dry “ winter also looms ahead, DRiWATER’s technology can be a savior for growers of all kinds. “There are many compelling reasons to use DRiWATER for the irrigation of plants, but when water is scarce or limited it should be the clear choice”, says Joseph Paternoster, President and Chief Executive Officer. “All the results over the years indicate that a Driwatered plant will use 85% to 90% less water than conventional irrigation methods. This should make the Water Agencies around the country, especially those in water scarce areas, very happy.”
The DRiWATER packages are placed directly at the root mass of a plant, eliminating evaporation, runoff, leaching and other wasteful consequences of traditional irrigation. Because DRiWATER consists of 98% water and 2% vegetable gum (the same ingredient found in mayonnaise) it is environmentally friendly and is a significant improvement over synthetic and potentially toxic products such as polymers. The naturally occurring bacteria in the soil breaks down the vegetable gum at a constant rate supplying the roots with 24 hour a-day moisture regardless of ambient temperature. A one-quart quantity of DRiWATER will water for three months, so users not only conserve water but also save considerable time spent watering.
