Recent rain? Now is the best time to treat your dam or pond.

Our Water$ave Plug Range is the world's best polymer based earthen dam or water catchment sealant.

Whether the leak is in the base, wall, through rock or any soil type Polymer Innovations has the specific Water$ave Plug dam sealant to put an end to your water losses.

The best time to treat your leaking dam with Water$ave Plug is when there is water in the dam, especially after recent rain.While there is water about & your dam is filling, stop those dam leaks before it costs you more money by putting your crops, stock & livelihood at risk.

There are other ways of sealing your dam using such products as bentonite clay, lime or with a lining. Most of these solutions have to be implemented when the dam is built.

Even then due to time or money restrictions these dams are not built as well as they should be where such things as soil conditions, council specifications & seasonal changes are not considered.

When applied at the correct application rate most cases require only one application to permanently seal your dam or pond.

Easy to apply!

PIC_0235

  • Just sprinkle over the surface of the water. On a quiet day with no wind or rain.
  • Apply at 100gm/m2 for a fast leak or 75gm/m2 for a slow leak. A fast leak is a noticeable reduction over days & weeks. A slow leak is a noticeable reduction over months.
  • Remove any livestock & dense reeds. They impede the polymers ability to get to the outflows.
  • Allow 12 - 48hrs. To hydrate, expand & sink towards the outflows.
  • Then allow 2 - 10 days. Depending on the rate of leak for the polymers to start incorporating into the soil structures.

How does it work?

en_drilling02colour2

  • Water$ave Plug Range is a blend of lineal & cross linked polymers that are 99% insoluble, non toxic & biodegradable. It will not harm any plants or animals like fish, yabbies, your pets or livestock.
  • This polymer is known as a Polyacrylamide. It’s charge density & molecular weight can be controlled by the ratio of Acrylamide & Potassium Acrylate.
  • This allows us to customise its charge depending on the soil to be bonded. This is known as flocculation, where soil solids are bonded into 'flocs'.
  • The hydrating polymers expand & create a 'net' that carry the polymers & solids toward the leaks. This creates a 'plug' & will continue to expand filling holes, cracks & crevices to become part of the soil structures.
  • Water$ave Plug & Seep locates the leak & seals it! Even if you don't know exactly where the leak is our polymers will locate the outflows.
  • Please visit the Water$ave Plug & Seep FAQ page for more information.

 

Water$ave Plug Range is the easiest, most cost effective polymer based dam sealing product on the market.

WATER$AVE HY HYDRO

Water$ave Hydro is a special polymer blend that can be efficiently applied for hydroseeding operations. Water$ave Hydro maximises plant establishment & holds the components together preventing loss of material through wind & water erosion.

hydro-1

Hydroseeding (or hydromulching) is a land reclamation process often used on cleared, steep or damaged land that uses a slurry of seeds, dyes & mulch. The slurry is transported & applied via a water tank or IBC then sprayed over the ground in a uniform layer. This hydroseed (or hydromulch) promotes the new growth of native plants preventing air pollution, soil erosion & undue water runoff.

Warter$ave Hydro is a specific combination of polymers that are further enhanced via cross-linking to hold the hydromulch in place & release water as it is required. Water$ave Hydro is smooth & accurate to apply with no 'splashing'.

'Organic' tackifiers such as guar gum will 'tack' only for a short time (usually before the roots & soil have established properly) & do not retain water at all therefore not all seeds will germinate & develop evenly, leading to further soil erosion.

Additives such as native seeds, fertilisers or dyes can be added to the hydromulch mix depending on your soil structure, slope gradient & irrigation requirements.

  • Water$ave Hydro is a specific polymer blend for general hydroseeding operations in urban areas & general road embankments. Water$ave Hydro is designed to break down as the plants' root systems penetrate & hold the moist soil structures in place.
    Note: Hydroseeding in more rugged, isolated & dryer terrains may require Water$ave Hydro-Tac.

 

Water$ave Hydro prevents the hydromulch from becoming hardpan during drought. The mulch remains aerated & hydrated allowing the seeds to sprout quickly in any conditions.

Water$ave Hydro provides an cost efficective, safe & easy to apply hydroseeding solution to enhance the growth of cleared or damaged native land.

Water$ave Hydro-Tac

A tackifier is an adhesive compound used in hydroseeding (or hydromulching). Acting as a 'glue' it can be a resin based or a polymer based mixture used to increase the 'tack' or stickiness of the hydroseed mulch to be mixed, this may contain water, seeds & fertilisers. This hydromulch 'mix' is then pumped over the area to be treated.

 

Hydroseeding is a land reclamation process often used on cleared, steep or damaged land that uses a slurry of seeds, dyes & mulch. The slurry is transported & applied via a water tank or IBC then sprayed over the ground in a uniform layer to promote the new growth of native plants preventing air pollution, soil erosion & undue water runoff.

Water$ave Hydro-Tac is a specific linear polyacrylamide, called PAM. Using PAM tackifiers is one best ways to hydroseed; retaining more moisture in the mulch to keep it in place & prevents messy applications without 'splashing' onto embankments, paths & roadways.

 

Water$ave Hydro-Tac does not 'glue' the mulch to the soil. It actually hydrates & conglomerates the soil particles, making them bigger & heavier. Therefore making it much more difficult to displace on embankments, damaged land & hillsides making it perfect for steep slopes.

 

'Organic' tackifiers such as guar gum will 'tack' only for a short time (usually before the roots & soil have established properly) & do not retain water at all therefore not all seeds will germinate & develop evenly, leading to further soil erosion.

 

Water$ave Hydro-Tac is a specific polyacrylamide (or PAM) tackifier that last longer & at lower application rates produce the same 'tack' as organic tackifiers.

 

  • Water$ave Hydro-Tac is a 'stand alone' tackifier that does not necessarily require mulch or additives. It is a blend of specific lineal polyacrylamides for hydroseeding projects that retain moisture & soil structures for longer time periods than other polymer tackifiers.
    Note: For general hydroseeding in urban areas & road embankments Water$ave Hydro may be suitable.

 

Water$ave Hydro-Tac is an excellent 'straw tackifier' that is designed to break down as the plants' root systems penetrate & hold the soil structures in place.

 

Highly effective in the young regrowth of trees, shrubs, bushes & saplings to assist in revegetation & reforestation especially in dry & remote locations.
