The Benefits of Filtering your Garden Water

More and more homes in America are starting to use some type of water filtration to remove particulates and chlorine from their drinking, cooking, and shower water. But, many forget the water that is used to irrigate gardens. Just as chlorine can seep into our skin during a shower, it can seep into the soil and food that we grow in our garden.

Chlorine is designed to kill living organisms, such as fungi and bacteria that can contaminate your water source. However, a healthy soil is made up of beneficial bacteria, molds and various forms of fungi (the very things that chlorine was designed to kill). A plant's survival is based on the nutrients it receives from its water and soil. Organic farmers and gardeners have known for years that the safest way to protect their plants and the environment from insects, disease, and pests is through the use of beneficial bacteria. Therefore, you need a way to remove the chlorine from the water without harming the beneficial insects and bacteria that make your garden thrive.

The best way to remove chlorine from a water source is with a carbon filter. There is currently a carbon filter made especially for garden irrigation. The Gard’n Gro Garden Filter system promotes healthy plant nutrition and growth by enhancing the effectiveness of non-chemical pest controls, protecting ladybugs, lacewigs, and beneficial nematodes, and removing up 85% of the chlorine in the water. You can purchase the Gard’n Gro Garden Filter system at our online store, www.filtersfast.com.
