ANSWERS TO COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR IRRIGATION PRODUCTS

We have irrigation products that serve a variety of needs. Here are some answers to some of the common questions we get asked.

HOW CAN I KEEP AN IRRIGATION SYSTEM FROM MAKING RUST STAINS?

If your customers are getting rust stains on their property from their irrigation systems, it could be caused by trace amounts of iron in the water. They could also have rust building up within the system itself. We recommend making Rid O’ Rust Rust Preventer part of the system, with the aid of the GreenFeeder System for administering the products. We have an online calculator to help you determine the amount of iron in their water and how much Rid O’ Rust Rust Preventer is necessary.

WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO REMOVE RUST STAINS FROM A PROPERTY?

Rid O’ Rust Rust Preventer won’t remove existing rust stains. We recommend Rid O’ Rust Liquid Rust Stain Remover to remove rust without the need for abrasion. Rid O’ Rust relies on surface action for a clean, damage-free effect. There’s no scrubbing and no pressure washing. Just apply it with a pump sprayer, cloth, roller, or gentle brush, and leave it for several minutes. Afterward, rinse all surfaces thoroughly. 

WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO FERTILIZE WITH AN IRRIGATION SYSTEM?

We recommend using the GreenFeeder System and our GrassSoGreen product. GreenFeeder is a low-cost, water-driven pump that can administer many of our products—from GrassSoGreen and NatureShield to Rid O’ Rust Rust Preventer.  

CAN AN IRRIGATION SYSTEM BE USED TO DETER PESTS?

NatureShield is an all-natural pest control product that works with the GreenFeeder system. It uses a proprietary blend of essential oils and vegetable extracts to form an effective barrier against pests, including ticks, fleas, ants, and other crawling insects. It has no artificial additives or unpleasant scents.

HOW CAN I TREAT MY CUSTOMERS' LANDSCAPES MORE EFFICIENTLY?

Optimize labor hours with the GreenFeeder System, which is easy to install and is completely irrigation-driven. It can be used with NatureShield, Rid O’ Rust Rust Preventer, and GrassSoGreen so that you can automate the process of preventing pests and iron stains, and fertilizing, all with one system. Along with cutting the time and labor associated with any one property, this presents an opportunity to build repeat business.
