Do You Have A Yellow Lawn Despite Aggressive Watering?
This could be the result of chlorine and other contaminants in your water. The ecoGeeks Hose Filter removes more than 90% of chlorine in city water for up to 20,000 gallons with an almost unnoticeable decrease in water pressure.
Chlorine in City Water Can Cause Soil, Foliage and Root Damage:
Chlorine is a powerful biocide (meaning it kills ALL living things in sufficient doses). Municipal water supplies can contain as much as 4 parts per million chlorine. One potentially serious side effect of watering lawns and plants with municipal water containing chlorine it that it can kill the natural, beneficial bacteria in soil. Killing the beneficial bacteria leads to an increased need for fertilizers, soil hardening and unhealthy plants.
Buildup of Lead, Mercury, Arsenic, Pesticides and Other Contaminants:
Even the best municipal or well water contains trace amounts of certain heavy metals, pesticides and other contaminants. Repeated watering of lawns and gardens creates the opportunity for these contaminants to build up in soil. The water eventually evaporates or soaks in, but the heavy metals and pesticides remain. The ecoGeeks Hose Filter reduces or eliminates most of these contaminants before they reach your soil or plants.
