Target nutrient temperature: 18oC - 21oC
Keep your nutrient solution cool to speed up nutrient uptake and fight root problems – use 25mm Iceline Pipe.
To keep heat out, Iceline Pipe has two layers - a black layer to block UV rays – a white layer to reflect heat.
You can expect a temperature drop of at least 3oC – 8oC when you switch to Iceline Piping.
As result, your oxygen level will increase, which will improve nutrient uptake and lower the risk of root problems.
It’s simple, but it works. During summer, Iceline is the only pipe to use.
• Keeps your nutrient cool
• Temperature drops by 3oC – 8oC
• Double wall to keep heat out
• White outer layer to reflect heat
• Black inner layer to block UV rays
• Prevents root problems (like Pythium)
• Helps improve nutrient uptake
• Maximises oxygen level
- The Science
Want to fight root problems and increase nutrient uptake?
The easiest way to do it is by controlling the temperature of your nutrient solution.
When your nutrient solution is too warm, your oxygen level drops. This slows nutrient uptake, and makes it easy for root diseases can thrive and for algae can grow. When algae grows, your oxygen level drops even further, making matters much worse.
At the right temperature (18oC - 21oC), your oxygen level is high. As a result, nutrient uptake increases. Better yet, it’s harder for algae to grow and root diseases to take hold.
To stop your nutrient solution from warming as it travels through your irrigation system, use Iceline pipe.
