Aqua Cents is reportedly capable of helping save up to 50% on landscape water use for sustained periods of several years. It is a patented technology that delivers organic hydrogels directly below the root zone of turf. Aqua Cents hydrogels are specifically formulated to absorb up to 400 times their weight in water and beneficial nutrients. This absorption and holding capacity—allowing up to 96% utilization of water “as needed” by the root zone—significantly reduces the amount and frequency needed for water and fertilizers. The innovative storage and delivery process also improves aeration, water infiltration and distribution uniformity. Aqua Cents hydrogels are biodegradable and environmentally safe; they naturally degrade without negative or toxic effects on the soil or microorganisms.
