My name is Dean Piller, Member of the GCSAA for 25 years. I am the Superintendent of the Cordova Bay Golf Course in Victoria, British Columbia and Past Past President of the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association. I read with interest an article about the water restrictions and serious drought facing California. Two years ago I began doing research on the Magnation product line that has the ability to reduce irrigation requirements for turf and agriculture crops by up to 25%. We have installed pump station magnets on both of my golf courses with noticeable results. Last summer, in one of the hottest and driest summers on record our irrigation daily run times were 80,000 gallons less per night equating to 2.5 million gallons per month.
