Before & After Salt Water Treatment
Grass Revitalisation and Salt correction!
It is not your fault that your lawn is dying slowly or struggling to establish itself. Grass is like a child – tempermental and has mood swings… but it is also very quick to respond to its environment!
So when it has too much salt to drink it has no choice but to promptly turn a sickly yellow and show signs of mistreatment.
Unfortunately Perth is on the Western Coastal Plain which is of low elevation and high concentrations of salinity in our soils and water. Because grass is high water-consumption plant it is more affected by impurities in water.
There are 2 sources of salinity that destroys grass:
1. A bore hole missing a salt treatment system and;
2. Close proximity to the ocean.
If you have a bore it is likely you will have high levels of salt and maybe other impurities such as iron (the dirty orange staining you will see on walls). Perth bore hole drillers are familar with the high salt level in Perth and we often work with them to ensure water that comes up is clean, drinkable and healthy.
Suburbs closer to the ocean generally have a high concentration of salt in the ground water and in the air. Trigg, Cottesloe, Marmion and Hilarys all have greater salt in the air from sea spray and general air conditions. Hence why it is recommended these suburbs use marine grade metals on their outside areas.
Earth & Water has installed hundreds of salt water treatment systems across Perth over the last 16 years. Which is why we are able to design systems faster and better than others. Familiarity with unique water characteristics of each suburb also helps!
A consultation site visit is $190 by a water technician or our Director – Nigel Thompson.
Following the consultation your water is sent to the labs for testing. This is an external fee of $200. The results determine how the system is designed.
From there you will get an itemised quote. From our experience the total cost of a salt water treatment system will be $1,500 – $3,000.
