For only $10 pa in power Hydrosmart solves many water problems, using no filters, chemicals or consumables. After 10 years of successful operation many farmers, vineyards, golf courses, councils and factories can now verify that it has simply and sustainably solved wide ranges of water problems:
The systems also impact sewerage and waste treatment sustainably.
Hydrosmart’s Paul Pearce has also been involved in irrigation trials being set up to run on saline effluent reuse water at a University in California, Blue Green Algae trials running with BHP Qld, Algae kill trials running on seawater ( ballast water ) with the Maritime School in the Netherlands, bacteria impact trials at Australian Institute of Marine Sciences Qld and strawberry growth trials on highly saline water in Dubai.
“We’ve been intentionally ignored for years and it’s part of a strategy to keep the lid on this specific technology. But Hydrosmart is simple and it works, so it’s starting to surface regardless. Right now we’re at the tipping point.”
Get Farming believes this is something we should all be considering – we DO need ways to clean water but we also need to be better informed about our options:
” In our haste… we might be choosing a technology that isn’t the best option. If we listen to Paul Pearce, it could well be a case that need has allowed greed in the door, and the solutions we’re being sold are expensive, over-engineered and produce toxic by-products.
Take salty water as an example. Let’s pit desalination and Hydrosmart technology against each other. To make the water useable – for irrigating a golf course for example – on the surface both methods achieve the necessary results, but they employ very different approaches. They also have equally dissimilar long term impacts.
Desalination literally sieves out the salt (remember good old osmosis?) which has to be put back out into the environment somewhere and it requires serious infrastructure as well as rugged chemicals to clean those membranes. So it’s expensive and produces nasty wastes.
Then there’s the other option. Hydrosmart uses resonance frequencies to break the bonds between the salt crystals (more secondary school science) so that from a growing plant’s perspective the water is no longer saline. Hydrosmart runs on about as much energy as a light globe, it’s more of an appliance than a 1 million dollar plant, and there are no by-products apart from the one you want – useable water.
So why isn’t this technology being popped in wherever there’s an issue with salt, or high iron, algae or scale build-up?
“There are too many water experts and millions to be made it seems. Our simple solution just doesn’t fit into all those corporate agendas… (but) One day, all of our water will be treated this way!””
Any firsthand experiences out there?
