Why The Need For a Alive Water Cell

In the mid seventies I was developing river pumps for cotton irrigation. Because of limitations such as water hammer, pump lift height and weight of water in the tube the water quality was diminished. As a consequence this water kept the plants alive but not flourishing as rain does.

Pump Redesign

We changed the pump blades to an enclosed shrouded vortex lift. We then started “tickling” the water to improve the quality and make it more like rain water

Firstly I added air into the column of the pump tube. The breakthrough came when I added a charge to the water. I did this by using different metals in the tube structure. I used sacrificial anodes and cathodes to help cavitate and spin the water which gave the water it’s life force back.

I then kept experimenting to come up with the A.I.R. Alive Water Cell. Then I teamed up with Martin Gooch, a veggie farmer near Casino, NSW. to experiment on his farm. Because they were irrigating from a Dam the water was not active leading to poor quality, pest ridden crops and the heavy use of chemicals. Using the A.I.R. Alive Water Cell we were able to reduce chemical use and increase plant production. The water seemed “wetter” and more available to the plants.

Martin and I won the “Queensland Country Life Farm Safety Competition” at Primex and a “Inventors Award” in 1994 for the A.I.R. Alive Water Cell
