Why premium water is crucial for successful indoor growing
One of the most important decisions you’ll make for your indoor agriculture business is which water treatment system to choose. Why? Because the quality of the water you use will affect your crop, your equipment, and your bottom line.
Clean water makes better plants
Municipal water contains disinfectants like chlorine and chloramines. Well water can contain iron, hardness, lead and arsenic among other contaminants. These disinfectants and contaminants are easily absorbed by plants, and can adversely affect your crop by inhibiting growth and limiting yields. For plants to thrive, they need the cleanest water possible.
Clean water saves you money
Hard water and iron (rust) can leave deposits in costly equipment like pumps, drip lines and nozzles. These deposits can shorten the life of equipment causing downtime, repair bills and replacement costs. But with clean water running through your equipment, there are no deposits. Equipment lasts longer. Repair costs plummet.
Outdated water treatment systems
A water softener will remove hardness but adds salt… not good for plants. Carbon filters can remove chlorine but do little to remove arsenic and other contaminants.
