Water Problem... Irrigation
Water Shortage? Salty Water?
BOOST PRODUCTIVITY & PROFITS... even with SALTY WATER & SALTY SOIL!
Farmers everywhere know how important good water is! Many use large center pivot sprinklers and/or drip irrigation systems. Unfortunately in many parts of the country, well water often has very high levels of salt and hardness, and as a result, salt builds up in the soil over the years making it hard, impermeable and unsuitable. Salt and minerals in the water are hard on the plants, and also clog up irrigation systems causing lots of expensive and time consuming maintenance.
SOLUTION... a CARE FREE® Conditioner!

Texas Farmers Have BEST CROPS in 17 years with CARE FREE Despite Salty Water & Soil and Despite Extreme Drought & Triple-Digit Heat!
Prukop Farms: Premont, Jim Wells County, Texas
Products: Watermelon, Cotton, Canola, Many others
40 Years In Business
"Here at Prukop Farms we have installed three Care Free Water Conditioners on irrigation wells that supply our drip irrigation to primarily watermelon crops. These wells produce 1100 gallons per minute of water that is of marginal quality for irrigating crops due mainly to the different salts they contain (high TDS).
We have been affected by a two year drought, so our past Spring and Fall crops were grown exclusively with this (salty) well water delivered to our watermelon crops conditioned by the
Care Free Water Conditioners."
"Since we have installed the Conditioners we have harvested two of the Best Spring and Two of the Best Fall crops we have had in seventeen years of growing drop irrigated watermelons! This is remarkable given the water quality and the total lack of rainfall."
John Prukop, Manager Prukop Farms, Premont, TX; Chairman Board of Directors for Texas AgFinance; Board of Directors Kleberg-Kenedy Soil & Water Conservation District
Making Salty Water & Soil Highly Productive
Installation is Simple
One of 3 Care Free Water
Conditioners at Prukop Farms
Prukop farms is a highly diversified farming operation and diversification helps to withstand weather variations like extreme drought and heat. They are continuously looking for new innovations and technology to make the operation more efficient. When John Prukop realized their irrigation water was becoming more and more salty, he did his research and discovered the Many Benefits of Care Free Conditioned Water!
This progressive mindset and business approach is key to the Farm's Success.

Since 1980, Farmers, Ranchers, & Growers World-Wide have enjoyed the Many Benefits of Care Free Conditioned Water Including Increased Production & Profits
$80,000 Loss in Broccoli crop Before Installing Care Free
"With our salty water (2,800 ppm TDS) we couldn't afford NOT to have a Care Free Conditioner!" -Brad Ipsen Manjimup Australia
Prior to installing Care Free Conditioners, this vegetable grower had $80,000 crop losses in two months due to salty water & soil. Since installing four Care Free Conditioners, he now has:
- 20% Crop Increase
- Salt Scald disappeared on soil surface
- 10 day crop turnaround
"It's amazing... We've had a 20% crop increase since installing our Care Free Conditioners"
Production increases 340% using 11,000 ppm Salt Water
After installing a Care Free Water Conditioner the production of Spinach Increased by 340% and this small Farm income rose from $40,000 to $136,000.

How Does it Work?
The Care Free Water Conditioner is and in-line water treatment system with a proven track records since 1980. Installed in your water supply line after the pump and before any other equipment including equipment adding nutrients or fertilizers, if any, it becomes part of your irrigation system. It's unique, patented design forces the water to go through the specially designed catalytic chamber at a very high velocity which causes tremendous turbulence and, coupled with a small electric field, causes the mineral and salt particles in the water to separate, repel each other, and be drastically reduced in size SO AS TO BECOME INERT AND INCAPABLE OF HAVING AN ADVERSE IMPACT. Simply put, the catalytic process eliminates cohesion (binding) of mineral particles, including salts, in the water and renders them inert and incapable of having an adverse impact on plants, soil, and water-using equipment.
If Lowering Soil Salinity is Important, a Care Free Water Conditioner is for You
"...There are observed salinity reductions in the soils where trials have taken place..."
"By reducing the size of the salt particles, the (Care Free Conditioner) influences the negative impact of the saline water, and allows the salt ions to pass downward through the soils below the root zone. The irrigated water with the salt particle size reduction allows the salt ions to pass quicker throughout the soils and not get caught up in the root zone for plants." -Dr. John Bradd, Hydrogeologist ANS0 & ASAN National Co-ordinator
Tremendous Water & Fertilizer Savings: Care Free Water Penetrates the Soil Vertically, Directly To The Root Zone...Reducing Lateral Waste By 55%
Care Free Sends Water Directly to the Root Zone! These two photos of drip irrigation taken during the same time frame show how much lateral water dispersion has been reduced with a Care Free Conditioner. Because Care Free reduces the micron size of salt particles in the water & makes them inert, the water penetrates the soil faster. It also makes the soil more permeable and able to retain moisture longer.
Without Care Free the wetted area measured 26 3/4"-more than half the water & fertilizers were wasted
With Care Free the wetted area was reduced by 42% to 16-1/2" the first watering cycle & by the 55% to 11-3/4" by the third watering cycle

Care Free Eliminates Salt & Mineral Buildup on Texas Poultry Farmer's Evaporative Cooling Cell Pads
"We have 3 wells that supply 8 broiler houses. Our well water is very salty & hard which causes big maintenance problems especially with salt & calcium buildup on the broiler house cooling pad cells. We purchased a Care Free Conditioner (Model CF50MKII for 100 gpm) and installed it immediately. The Results were amazing! No more salt & calcium buildup on anything including the cooling cell pads. This has not only saved us money, time and maintenance, but has saved us from losing chickens to the heat."

Vegetables Thrive in 4,159 ppm Salt Water
"I maintain a 15,000sq.ft. vegetable garden here in Corpus Christ, TX. We tried to grow tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, and other vegetables but we have so much salt in our water (4,159 ppm TDS), everything had leaf burn & often died. The more we watered with salty water, the saltier the soil got until finally in 2009 almost everything died.
We Then bought a Care Free Catalytic water Conditioner and the crops have flourished ever since! What a Great Product!"
