Water testing

Irrigation water has the single greatest influence on soil structure, root health and vitality. When water is used for irrigation over time, soil will inherit the properties of the water itself.

Water testing is essential for non-potable irrigation source

Irrigation water from underground bores or recycled sources often carry salts that can negatively influence the soil that they treat. Levels of salinity, dissolved solids, bicarbonates and various other elements determine the suitability of irrigation water for turf.

Did you know.....

Bicarbonates are alkaline salts that bond readily to available calcium in soil, forming highly insoluble calcium carbonate. Where irrigation water is high in bicarbonates, soils have a tendency to become anaerobic, prone to black layer and elevated in pH. Soils that are irrigated with high bicarbonate are prone to sodium accumulation because calcium and magnesium availability is limited.
