FAQ’s you should know

What is Hydretain
Hydretain is a unique root zone moisture management technology that reduces the need for watering turfgrasses, ornamental plants, shrubs, trees, and agriculture by as much as 50% or more.
Is Hydretain a wetting agent or polymer gel
No. Wetting agents reduce the surface tension of water, which helps water enter hydrophobic soils more easily. They impact the movement of liquid water down to and throughout the soil. Hydretain is unique in its ability to impact the movement of moisture vapor (the gas form of water) as it moves back up through the soil where it would normally be lost to evaporation. Hydretain attracts soil moisture vapor and converts it back into plant usable water droplets – reducing evaporative loss and making more water available to plant roots. Superabsorbent polymers or hydrogels are similar to the polymers used in baby diapers. They absorb and store liquid water. In most cases, superabsorbent polymers must be incorporated into the root zone, making them difficult to use on established lawns and plants.
Do I still need to fertilize when I use Hydretain
Yes. Hydretain products are safe for use around kids and pets. Hydretain is not classified as hazardous under the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals. It does not require any wait period before your family and pets can enter the application area.
How does Hydretain work
Once applied and watered into the root zone, Hydretain’s hygroscopic and humectant components attached to plant root hairs, drawing moisture vapor from the soil like tiny water magnets. It then converts that moisture vapor into water droplets, allowing plants to take up more moisture and assisting in the uptake of nutrients.
Is Hydretain organic
Although Hydretain is not certified organic, it is produced using primarily food grade, organic-based hygroscopic and humectant ingredients. Hydretain ES Plus has been certified as 93% biobased by the United States Department of Agriculture BioPreferred Program. It is safe to use on commercially grown food producing agriculture as well as residential vegetable and herb gardens, fruits and citrus trees. Hydretain Granular OC incorporates the Hydretain formula into an organic compost carrier.
How long does Hydretain last?
For both liquid and granular products, each application of Hydretain lasts for up to 3 months.
Where can I use Hydretain
Yes. Hydretain products are safe for use around kids and pets. Hydretain is not classified as hazardous under the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals. It does not require any wait period before your family and pets can enter the application area.
