A Safer, More Effective Cleaning Treatment for Micro Irrigation Systems


  •  Savings on water, labor and hardware expenses.
  • A non-caustic substance substance for a safer workplace.
  • Benefits to the soil for greater sustainability.

Drip Irrigation and other micro-irrigation technologies have given growers unparalleled water efficiency,  putting precise amounts of water exactly where it’s needed.    But even the best designed irrigation systems with the most  advanced filtration can’t prevent mineral reducing bacteria from clogging emitters and filtration systems.  Drip irrigation only works when the system is clean and water distribution is uniform so keeping it clean is the key challenge to getting the most out of irrigation water.

Phyto-Cat is a liquid fermentation treatment that rapidly breaks down the bio-films that cause scaling, allowing mineral and organic material to flow out of the system enriching and oxygenating the soil.   It represents a leap forward in irrigation maintenance technology; a completely safe water treatment that reliably keeps irrigation systems running clean while enhancing the health of the soil.  Until recently growers have had to use chemicals such as peroxide and acids which pose a hazard to workers and are of limited effectiveness.  Phyto-Cat offers a  leap forward in both efficacy and safety.

One gallon of Phyto-Cat per acre per year prevents the need for manual cleaning and flush outs with hazardous chemicals.  On one California vineyard a $70 treatment of Phyto-Cat eliminated over $300 per acre in labor, equipment and water costs.
