Denver, Co., January 18, 2018 – WaterPulse’s new Pallet Watering Mat provides the solution to one of the biggest grower/retailer challenges – efficiently watering plants grown, shipped and displayed on standard pallets.
“Pallet Watering Mats reimagine our capillary action technology, giving growers and retailers the power to automatically, easily and economically water their plants by the pallet,” says Jim Heffernan, CEO of WaterPulse. “They’re still saving water and reducing labor, now with the flexibility of impacting every corner of their business model.”
Simple to use and install, with no cutting required, Pallet Watering Mats have a rubber edge to keep the water in and prevent water runoff. They have a hard plastic rigid liner inside to prevent drooping. Use them in greenhouses, nurseries, garden centers and indoor growing operations. Simply place the Pallet Watering Mat on a pallet; fill it with plants, then water to the edge.
Like WaterPulse’s well-known Watering Mats, Pallet Watering Mats take advantage of the natural capillary action of soil to deliver both water and nutrients uniformly, for healthier, more consistent, more attractive plants. A unique anti-microbial middle layer – the only one like it on the market – deters disease, controls algae growth and reduces the possibility of mold or odor. WaterPulse mats deliver uniform watering and reduced plant upkeep, which translates to lower water and labor costs.
Traditional hand watering takes eight hours or more per day. With Pallet Watering Mats, growers and retailers limit their irrigation to a few watering cycles per day, depending on location and temperature. Pallet Watering mats take away the hassle and labor intensity of watering each plant individually.
WaterPulse delivers innovative solutions to reduce water use in the horticulture industry for greenhouses, nurseries, indoor growing operations and retail garden centers. More than 10 million square feet of the company’s flagship Watering Mats have been installed across North America. WaterPulse’s suite of products uses patent-pending technology to mimic the natural capillary action of soil and move water to plants efficiently and precisely. This technology significantly reduces water waste, labor and overall cost, all while improving plant quality. WaterPulse is also the first company to offer growing and retail operations a practical way to take advantage of capillary irrigation mats and their inherent efficiencies. The company is headquartered in Denver, Colorado, and all of their products are proudly manufactured in the United States of America.
