No Salt Problems for Claremont Country Club Golf Course

"Salt levels are not building up like in years past. Turf is healthier then it has been in the last few years."

~ Josh Clevenger, Golf Course Superintendent, Claremont Country Club, Oakland, CA

Reduction in Operating costs

"We reduced our wetting agent and fertility inputs by 25%, we reduced our hand watering, and we reduced the amount of water we needed to purchase from the Municipality by 15%. We have experienced substantial savings on our budget. Savings in water, savings in labor, savings in wetting agents and fertilizers.”

~ Dean Piller, Golf Course Superintendent, Vancouver Island, BC

Saving 80,000 gallons of water per night

"During one of the driest and hottest seasons on record, we ended up saving an average 80,000 gallons of water per night … that’s 2.4 million gallons of water over the course of a month.”

~ Dean Piller, Golf Course Superintendent, Vancouver Island, BC

Less dry spots

“We incorporated Magnation on our handwatering hoses this year and observed a remarkable improvement in infiltration rates and a significant reduction in localized dry spots. The results were instantaneous. I was skeptical about using them, but now I can say with confidence that Magnation does make a difference. #gamechanger”

~ Jason Hooper, Course Superintendent, Quilchena Golf & Countr y Club, B.C., Canada

Better sprinkler coverage, Less Hydrophobic Spots

"Magnation claims that it will reduce friction loss in your pipes so I tested to see if it was true. In my 24 years of tending this golf course, I knew that we had dry areas that appeared every summer because of poor sprinkler coverage. Not anymore. It's hard to measure the improvement with a percentage, but many of the dry areas we struggled with every summer, that required hand watering, totally disappeared."

~ Dean Piller, Golf Course Superintendent, Vancouver Island, BC

Better Quality Turf

"We have seen a dramatic difference in water penetration and retention, 20% water savings, deeper roots and better quality turf."

~ Ron le Boulanger, The International Golf Course, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Excellent Soil Chemistry & Lowered Soil Salinity

Our base saturations of calcium were over 70% for the first time on record for our fairways, and our sodium levels were below 2%, which we've never seen before. With Magnation, the sodium was reduced by 50% in our base saturations. We went from 120 pounds per acre of sodium down to 60 pounds, in our soil tests. The claims that Magnation makes about flushing sodium through the soil and solubilizing cations "magnesium, calcium and potas" are very true. We definitely saw that in our own results. We're finding tremendous benefits to our soil chemistry since the Magnation units have been put in and this has been realized in healthier, easier to manage turfgrass.

Drift Control Saves Chemicals

"When I was first told about magnetized spraying fluid for better leaf coverage and faster absorption I didn’t believe it. But after testing it, it was all clear to me: Drift Control really works fabulously! The boom side with treated spraying fluid had 10-15 centimeters wider spraying pattern than control side of the boom. Also absorption was visible faster with Drift Control. Drift Control can save us pesticide costs and lower environmental damage."
