New Pallet Watering Mat Available
WaterPulse has introduced a new Pallet Watering Mat to help growers and retailers efficiently water plants grown, shipped and displayed on standard pallets.
“Pallet Watering Mats reimagine our capillary action technology, giving growers and retailers the power to automatically, easily and economically water their plants by the pallet,” says Jim Heffernan, CEO of WaterPulse. “They’re still saving water and reducing labor, now with the flexibility of impacting every corner of their business model.”
The mats are easy to install and do not require any cutting. They have a rubber edge to keep the water in and prevent water runoff. A hard plastic rigid liner inside helps prevent drooping. Use them in greenhouses, nurseries, garden centers and indoor growing operations. Simply place the Pallet Watering Mat on a pallet; fill it with plants, then water to the edge.
The mats take advantage of the natural capillary action of soil to deliver both water and nutrients uniformly, for healthier, more consistent, more attractive plants. A unique anti-microbial middle layer deters disease, controls algae growth and reduces the possibility of mold or odor.
Traditional hand watering takes eight hours or more per day. With Pallet Watering Mats, growers and retailers limit their irrigation to a few watering cycles per day, depending on location and temperature. Pallet Watering mats take away the hassle and labor intensity of watering each plant individually.
