Aquagel’s Water Saver HYDROCACHE does more than just save water!
It retains & stores water
Hydrocache™ retains and stores water and plant nutrients while adding much needed carbon to the soil surrounding roots, boosting microbial activity.
Increases water retention
Pre-mixed with soil or applied as a gel, Hydocache™ will increase water holding capacity, reduce irrigation cycles or dependency periods on rainfall.
Long term usability
A single application of Hydrocache™ will absorb and release water and nutrients several times and typically bio-degrade after 3-5 years.
Boosts microbial activity
The carbon content in Hydrocache™ will actively boost soil microbial activity for an indefinite period.
Decrease water and nutrient leaching and evaporation, making it a sustainable water management tool, thus a great water saver.
Provide a food source
The Carbon used in Hydrocache™ has a minimum pore surface area of 400 m2/g. The nutrients stored in these pores provide a convenient food source for the soil microbes living inside the carbon capillaries. Furthermore, when the concentration of these nutrients in the soil lowers, the nutrients tend to desorb and return to the soil, delivering essentially a slow release mechanism.
Helps establish young trees
This water saver helps to establish young trees and plants in the early stages. Replacing dead or struggling trees is costly and time consuming.
