Just how does the Plantsurge magnetic fields cause such significantly stronger, healthier plant growth than both tap water and collected rain water?
Professor Coey from Dublin University, whose area of research includes magneto-electrochemistry and magneto-biology has conducted extensive studies which showed when hard water flows across static magnetic fields, the magnetic charge increases the aragonite to calcite ratio.
These two compounds make up the calcium deposits in hard water. Calcite makes scale cling to surfaces whereas aragonite is less likely to form scale and keeps moving along with the water.
Many gardeners believe that limescale has a negative impact on the plant’s ability to absorb nutrients.
The advantages of magnetic water softeners for garden use are that, unlike traditional methods, no chemicals (sodium or resins) are added to the water supply, beneficial minerals are not removed, and the water pH remains unchanged. Furthermore, even where soft water is already present, magnetic fields which mimic the effects of thunderstorms on rainfall cause a decrease in surface tension and an increase in the viscosity of the treated water.
Many keen gardeners will have noticed how gardens appear lusher after a thunderstorm. Plantsurge treated water improves hydration and the uptake of minerals from the soil into the root system. As a result of this Plantsurge also increases the effectiveness of soil enhancers such as fertilisers and composts.
Plantsurge has been designed in the UK by Gavin Reay, the creative boffin and industrial designer with his own company, Industrial Design Innovators.
