Why do we need water treatment equipment for flower seedlings and garden irrigation?

We used to use tap water to directly water the flowers, but the water in some places contains a lot of calcium salt and magnesium salt ions, and the water quality is very hard. Improving the quality of flowers is the primary issue that every flower farmer considers. In addition to the original soil, fertilizer and other factors, high-quality water sources have become an important prerequisite for flower growth.

So what kind of water is suitable for watering flowers?

The impact of water quality on flowers is very important. Different types of flowers have different requirements for water quality. First of all, it is necessary to understand whether the water quality of watering flowers belongs to soft water or hard water.

The way to tell the difference between soft and hard water is simple:


Method 1: Take an equal amount of water samples from two beakers respectively. Add the same amount of soapy water dropwise to each of the two beakers. Soft water is the one with more foam and less scum. Conversely, hard water with less foam and more scum.
Method 2: You can also use a beaker to heat, and hard water leaves more scale on the wall of the cup.

The conductivity of the water used for horticultural flower planting must be lower than 100us/cm, and most horticultural farms are located in the suburbs, and the water used is simply treated tap water or deep well water with relatively high conductivity. It can cause permanent damage, and even lead to wilting of leaves and plant death, which is extremely detrimental to the growth of potted flowers and trees. Therefore, horticultural water must be desalinated, and the desalination rate must be stabilized above 85%.

Commonly used method to remove water hardness:


1. The ion exchange method is adopted to replace the calcium and magnesium ions in the water and reduce the hardness of the water.
2. Adopt reverse osmosis membrane filtration method.

Advantages of flower water treatment equipment


1.) Ensure accurate preparation of soilless culture nutrient solution. We know that the growth of plants is inseparable from nutrients, and nutrients can only be absorbed and utilized when they are dissolved in water. Using tap water as a solvent to prepare a nutrient solution will be affected by other inorganic salts in the tap water, which in turn will affect the actual effect to be achieved. The use of pure water as a solvent can greatly reduce the interference of other ions and meet the requirements of horticulture to the greatest extent. Not only can the plants grow better, but also the waste of nutrients can be avoided.


2.) Enhance the light transmittance of horticultural facilities in winter, increase the temperature of the greenhouse, effectively promote the photosynthesis of plant leaves, and save the heating cost of the greenhouse.


3.) Improve the ornamental effect Various salts in tap water will precipitate from the surface of plant leaves and flowers due to the volatilization of water, forming spots, affecting the ornamental effect of foliage plants and flower plants, and pure water can make flowers more vivid.


4.) Avoid soil salinization The proportion of soil for potted plants is very small. The tap water contains various salts, and the volatilized water is pure water. Therefore, if you use tap water to water the potted plants, the salinization of the soil will become more and more. heavy, affecting the growth of plants. Pure water has very low salt content, which can avoid soil salinization.


5.) Prevent sprinkler irrigation equipment from being blocked by scales. Flower irrigation water equipment can filter suspended impurities in water, remove some insoluble organic matter, some algae and other substances, improve water quality, and effectively prevent sprinkler irrigation equipment from being damaged due to scale loss.
