RainDance Water Systems Reverse Osmosis For
Irrigation, Landscapes, Greenhouses, Growers, Livestock
The salts associated with salinity can affect the growth and health of
plants in several ways. One is referred to the “osmotic effect,” in which
salts attract water and compete with plants for it, meaning that as salinity
rises, plants have to expend more energy to take in water (energy that would
otherwise be used for growing, flowering, or fruiting). The end result is
negative: stunted growth, wilting, and other damage.
Another major concern is that constituents making up total dissolved solids
– for example, sodium and chloride ions, as well as boron – can be toxic to
sensitive plants, causing severe damage, such as leaf burn, leaf drop, and
plant death. Some plants are more susceptible to salt damage than others.
For instance, among turfgrasses, Colonial bentgrass is extremely salt
sensitive, while Bermuda grass and Seashore paspalum are highly salt
Most water that's acceptable for irrigation of landscapes contains 200 to
800 mg/L of dissolved salts. Total soluble salt levels up to 2,000 mg/L may
be tolerated by certain plant species, but only on soils with exceptional
permeability and subsoil drainage. If you have any questions on the maximum
TDS your plants can tolerate consult your plant distributor.
Simple water filters do not clean dissolved solids from the water. Such
filters remove debris emulsified (suspended) in water. A reverse osmosis
machine is needed for dissolved solids as it uses small polymer
semi-permeable membranes that let pure water pass through and filters out
dissolved solids from water. Reverse osmosis machines are the easiest most
efficient means clean raw water.
