FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can a Powergrowater vortex device improve crop yield and quality?
YES - almost universally yields are improved regardless of what is being grown using less water, fertilisers and sprays. We recommend doing a soil analysis before planting. It is recommended that inputs (including water) are reduced, some treatments, such as pesticides or herbicides, could harm your crop..
Can a Powergrowater vortex generator help with Pigs, Chickens and Cattle?
Animals started and raised with vortex water have reduced levels of parasites and the anaerobic bacteria will be kept in check. They have stronger immune system and faster growth rates to maturity. They usually have a superior feed conversion ratio. Overall animal health improves, resulting in lower mortality rates and a reduced dependence on medication. This in turns means a lower production cost. We recommend vortex water be used in all farm applications including work areas as it also reduces contaminants levels.
Is there any maintenance or power required?
Powergro Vortex devices are a set and forget device that requires no maintenance. The units do not require any external power source.
What is the life expectancy of the units?
The oldest unit we have in service in 5 years, we would expect a minimum of 10 years.
Does vortex water help to control build up in pipes?
Yes. Because it has the forces to hold its contents in suspension, vortexed water delivers to the plant, and doesn’t drop them in the pipe. Furthermore, because it is electron and proton-rich, it will also break down calcium build-up from the interior of the pipe, and other water hardware, thus insuring the proper flow and extending service life.
Are there any restrictions of flow from the use of the devices?
No. Flow rates actually increase as the water is more effective and efficient. The devices are designed to not provide any restriction to flow and have no moving parts that can fail or need maintenance. Due to powerful vacuum forces within the vortex, flow rates can actually increase as the water is denser, coherent, “slippery”, and more efficient.
What are the maximum pressures the devices can handle?
The maximum pressure we have tested is 1500 psi. We had no reason to test higher pressures.
Is a vortex unit recommend for Aquaponics?
Yes - A Powergrowater vortex device will increase the amount of available oxygen in the water. It will also add beneficial energy creating an environment with far less disease issues.
