Irrigation Water Conditioners

The Sterling Water Conditioner is the safe, effective, environmentally friendly solution to hard water problems.

The Sterling Water Conditioner is an efficient, cost effective and environmentally friendly water treatment appliance that delivers results. The use of hard water for irrigation applications is harmful to the irrigation equipment and the agriculture or turf being irrigated.  Scale build up in the irrigation equipment causes emitters to clog with mineral build up.  This clogging significantly reduces the useful life of the emitter.  A layer of hard pan forms on the soil creating a barrier for water.  The hard pan layer will cause increased runoff and puddling on the soil. 

The Sterling Water Conditioner reduces scale build up on the irrigation equipment, eliminates the need for acid injection treatments and increased the effectiveness of irrigating.

Reduced Scale Build Up:   

  • Irrigating with hard water for residential, turf or agricultural purposes causes scale encrustations on spray heads, emitters, valves and irrigation equipment. 
  • Hard water produces a layer of hard pan which acts as a barrier for water struggling to saturate the soil.
  • Irrigation equipment will need to be replaced more frequently.
  • Over spray from irrigation equipment leads to a white chalky deposit on buildings and sidewalks.

Acid Injection Treatments are Eliminated:

  • Soil with a layer of hard pan will require acid treatment on a frequent basis.
  • Expensive specialized equipment is necessary for acid injection treatments.
  • Training and certification of personnel is often required.
  • Acid injections can be harmful to people, irrigation water supplies and crops.
  • Liquid acid, used in acid injection equipment, is a hazardous material and the most expensive form of acid.

Benefits of the Sterling Water Conditioner:

  • The Sterling Water Conditioner uses Electro-kinetic technology which reduces the surface tension of water and alters the physical characteristics of calcium carbonate, allowing water to permeate the soil better leading to less wasteful runoff.
  • The life of irrigation equipment will be prolonged.
  • Scale build up on spray heads, emitters, valves and irrigation equipment will be reduced because the Sterling Water Conditioner keeps the hard water particles in suspension reducing the effects of hard water.
  • The need for acid injection treatments is eliminated.
  • Fertilizer absorption will improve, reducing the amount of fertilizer required to achieve the same results.
The Sterling Water Conditioner is the safe, effective, environmentally friendly solution to hard water problems.

Did you know?

  • In 2000,  40% of the available fresh water in the U.S. was used for irrigation.
  • Over 49,000,000 acres of agricultural land are irrigated in the United States.
  • In the United States, there are approximately 1,000,000 acres of golf course turf.
  • Almost 60% of all the world's freshwater withdrawls go towards irrigation uses.
  • California acconts for 22% of irrigation water use in the United States.

HW Model Series are intended for water well use.

AG Model Series are intended for above ground agricultural use such as a sprinkler system.
