Frequently Asked Questions regarding IVG Irrigation systems.

Benefits of using the IVG-IR system to treat the irrigation water are:  

  • increasing yield
  • water savings
  • fertilizer savings
  • increased plant growth
  • optimal absorption of nutrients by the plant


The IVG Irrigation system is powered by water pressure only. A minimum of 45 PSI or 3 Bar is required. 

If there is not adequate water pressure, a booster pump may be added. 

Installation is easy by adding the IVG-IR system in line with your current irrigation system. 

IVG-IR is 100% maintenance free, no additional energy sources systems needed.

Warranty for the IVG-IR system is 5 years. 

3 different tests with the IVG for irrigation have been done: 

  1. Only using the IVG-IR without any nutrients or fertilizers
  2. Using the IVG to fill up a tank (4000L) and in this tank mixed in the nutrients and pumped that water to the crop, in soil or drip irrigation
    1. We used the same amount of nutrients for both the control site and the IVG site
    2. In other tests we have used less nutrients & water and achieved the same yield as before
  3. Using the IVG inline in drip irrigation,
    1. City water or Reverse Osmosis water thru the IVG-IR
    2. After the IVG-IR, inject nutrients
    3. Watering the plants (drip irrigation)
    4. Exceeded water collected underneath the plants, transported back to a holding tank and re-used back in to the crop

In all closed loop systems, after the IVG an air re-leave valve need to be installed to remove the air

By removing the air bubbles, the water will get a lower viscosity and a higher density. Water softeners mostly are used to avoid scaling in pipes or nozzles. The IVG-IR crystallizes the calcium. This means that calcium is changed into aragonite or calcite. These are crystals and can’t stick to any surfaces below 80 degree Celsius. This means that the pH level won’t change. 

Yes the IVG and its material is FDA approved. 

A: Use the IVG-IR before adding the ozone, as you will use less ozone to achieve the same results. For more information read the University of Massachusetts study

B: The nano bubbler or the FlowMixer need to be used after the injection of the air, this is taking away some of the efficiency from using only the IVG as air wil be injected and viscosity will raise.

No calcium is removed but changed in to Aragonite or Calcite, these are crystals and cannot stick to any surfaces below 80 degrees Celsius, this means that the pH level will not change.

The gases are expelled out of the outlet of whatever type of irrigation system that is being used. As the vortex separates the un-dissolved gases, they rise to the top of the IVG and follow a linear path away from the vortex water. This allows for the gases to dissipate into the air while the water flows out of it’s end point. 

The O2 levels remain present in the water after the vortex. The system only removes other un-dissolved gases such as nitrogen or carbon and any other anomalies that may be present (ex. Radon in certain well water systems). For this reason, O2 levels will stay the same, if not become more present due to the lack of remaining un-dissolved gases found in the water.

Yes, this is a closed system. The IVG is an inline water treatment addition that can be installed in any existing irrigation system. It runs solely off water pressure (minimum 45 psi) and is installed based on the size of an existing pipe system (3/4 inch all the way to 2 inch). An Air re-leave valve must be installed after the IVG when installed in a closed system to allow the un-dissolved gases to be removed fully.
