Magnation of Water Experiment. We were sent the results of an experiment examining property differences between Magnation water and regular water. The attached paper illustrates that while there is some overlap between Magnation Water and regular (control) water, the Magnation Water is clearly different. It is this difference that allows Magnation Water to be so effective and beneficial for the cell structure of plants, animals, and human health as seen across the United States and abroad. Related to our previous post – Biochemical Sequence of Nutrition in Plants – the additional properties of Magnation Water allow nutrients to be more accessible to cells, developing vigorous crops, greener turf, healthier soils, animals, and people.
Make Magnation part of your life and gain great tangible and intangible value for your family, farm, poultry, turf/golf course, fertigation, and more.

Biochemical Sequence of Nutrition in Plants is a great article which bring attention to how agriculture can be oversimplified. And when it is oversimplified, actions intended to benefit plant growth, like adding NPK fertilizer, can actually hinder the process. While it can be helpful to simplify complex problems, solutions that only address a portion of the issue or process are not sustainable. In this article, the author identified at least 8 elements that are important for comprehensive plant health, but many fertilizers only focus on 3: nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. The author’s more holistic approach to agriculture is more sustainable and effective in the long run.

Over the weekend our partners in Europe, 2Excell Magnetics, completed an irrigation soil profile. They watered a plot of soil with 10mm of water and measured how far the water penetrated into the soil at regular time increments. Check out the test results, Magnation Water Irrigation Profiles. You can see that in just one hour the water penetrates 180 mm (7 inches) through hard clayey soil. This test relates to what we are observing in the Bakersfield test as well. Because the water is penetrating further into the soil, it promotes deeper root growth, and further penetration means less water lost to evaporation. Less water loss means the plants have access to more water allowing for healthier, more sustainable plant growth.

It has been 4 weeks since Jerry Todd met with Bakersfield Parks & Rec personnel to install a Magnation unit on the at the landscape traffic circle. When the unit was originally installed the turf had a root depth of 2-3 inches. Four weeks later the root depth in the test soil is more than 4 inches. While the root depth in the control soil has remained at only about 2 inches. It is important to note that every added inch of root depth yield better plant health as well as less water and fertilizer requirements.
If you take a look at the posted photos, the control test area is much browner and more inconsistent, while the test area using the Magnation product, is greener, with a much more uniform turf growth and better overall health and appearance.
It looks like things are progressing smoothly. Jerry will continue to monitor the test area and we will continue to provide updates.

On July 2nd, Jerry Todd met Parks & Rec staff led by Supervisor Frank Hinojosa to install a 1” Magnation unit. The site was selected as their “worst case scenario” of very clayey soil.
- We attempted to take core samples and found the City’s nor my coring tools could penetrate the clayey soil. We finally got one core in a moist area near a leak.
- Root depth – approx. 2”
- We were able to turn over sod to check the turf from under the surface.
- They selected the landscaped traffic circle for the area to test.
- Comparable site is across the driveway, but fed from another line.
- The unit was installed in the valve box for visibility and easy access.
- I received a signed receipt for the unit and copied Department Head Darin Budak with the quoted price.
We’ll monitor the site weekly through 9/2 and keep you updated as the test progresses!

Related to our previous post, Cordova Bay Superintendent Dean Piller sent us a couple pictures of Magnation installations.
The first image shows the installation of the water system after the pump. The 8″ Big Blue unit is within the piping— if you look closely you can see the blue flange showing.
The second is our 4″ RainBolt installed underground.
Magnation prides itself in offering simple to install, versatile and highly effective products for water-wise superintendents.
Let us know how you want to apply our products, or give us information about any of your water issues and we will work with you to find the best solution.
Thank you for the pictures Mr. Piller, wishing you a fantastic year ahead!

A respected superintendent of Cordova Bay Golf Course, Dean Piller has provided pictures of the course. He attributes the visible results he is achieving on his greens to Magnation’s water system which was recently installed. “Our third fairway is showing very even moisture. This [was] not typical before installation of Magnation’s RainBolt.”

According to the Bay Area News Group, due to the drought in California, many golf courses are being forced to cut their water use—some by as much as 50%. Imagine cutting down water use and still be able to have a uniformly green course. Magnation products do exactly that. Click here to read a current research report from Olds College which confirms Magnation reduced water consumption by 20% without loss in turf quality. As the summer heats up and water restrictions tighten, give Magnation a chance. We offer a money-back guarantee. Please call to inquire. 888 830 0363
