Brian & Joy Moloney
2 x FR5100 3 x FR2050
Calcium Hardness 60
Moderately hard water with some iron staining In the winter month of July the water intake was stable at 16 LPH per day.
Immediately after installation of the Fluid Reactor system the intake rose to 24 LPH. This rose further in the later and hotter part of the year to stabilise at 40LPH. Calcium problem diminished and the clarity presentation of the water was greatly improved.
"This has put huge dollars on our bottom line"
Bio slime from iron bacteria has been reduced but not completely eradicated. When the tank is full, the Fluid Reactor controls the bacteria, however, when the tank is low and the slime dries out and falls back into the tank it re-hydrates and reintroduces the problem down stream.
A Sea Quest feeder will be installed shortly to sequester the iron and remove the oxidised iron resulting in the iron bacteria being deprived of it's host environment (oxidised iron) The bacteria under these circumstances dies out.
Property # 2:
Trevor Post - Paw Paw & Sweet Potato Farmer
1 x FR2050
Calcium Hardness 50
No apparent water problems were present at time of installation, however, Trevor was keen to achieve the very best crop results possible and agreed to a trial using a FR2050 Reactor unit on eight rows of sweet potatoes and one row of pawpaw trees that where not doing so well in the present situation.
This was in a very hot period of the year when irrigating was a priority, The control for this trial was the balance of the crop that remained untreated.
The results that followed where absolutely astounding. The foliage on the sweet potatoes struck early and grew rapidly with consistent coverage it was noticeable that the weeds couldn't get through in the early stages of growth.
More interesting was the 60 - 70% extra root mass that took place with the magnetic treated rows. The potato's are well formed and this was consistent throughout the trial rows. However, that could not be said for the control crop that performed poorly.
Trevor didn't wait for the completion of our trial, he purchased the Fluid Reactor without hesitation and proceeded to irrigate the control crop as well. He was noted to say he couldn't afford not to go ahead with this system. Trevor received top dollar at the Brisbane markets, this had not previously been achieved.

The DPI monitored these results and they were posted in DPI Journals in 2001
Electrical Conductivity 1020
Total Dissolved Solids 761
Total Hardness 303
Total Alkalinity 338
Sodium Absorbtion Ratio 2.45
Cattle consumption shifted for 35 Litres Per Head (LPH) to 50 LPH in the first 2 days of installation, cattle have now taken on a calm behaviour compared to pre Fluid Reactor application.
Other peripheral results included complete calcium removal from floats and pipe system in three weeks. Water perfectly clear and settled.
Consumption levels remained high even when feeding "Nitimole" with Dosertron equipment

Electrical Conductivity 2200
Total Dissolved Solids 1160
Total Hardness 700
Calcium Hardness 260
Total Chlorides 400
Summary: There was an instant softening of the water treated with the Fluid Reactor magnetic treatment system, lather increased and problems such as blocking of washing machine filters ceased.
There was a complete prevention of calcium buildup on the shower rose and bacterial smell was eliminated in water. A reverse osmosis system was also fitted under the sink to treat drinking water to a very high standard.
"You would not believe how good this water tastes"
Property # 5:
Property: Yabba Station
Contact: Nicholas & Joanne Markwell
Installation Date: Nov-99
Units Installed: 2 x 5100 20 x 2050 1 x Neg 1 x 1020
The Markwell's water supply could be best described as ordinary with a few more problems thrown in. It tested very hard, and brackish, this added to the turkey's nest and drinking troughs being inundated with algae. Pumping over these distances created more problems with pipe blockages from calcium and magnesium hardness. Combine this water with urea and it's not surprising that it didn't mix well creating a cocktail the cattle preferred not to drink.
This property was first tested by us in Nov 99 and one half of the property was fitted with Reactor units to improve the water drinking quality to weaner cattle. We later visited again in April 2000 to fit up the remainder of the property with Reactor units. All units were required to be strategically located to maximise the change in the water quality This included the bore, turkey's nest, and troughs The alternatives to using the Reactor system was to drill to the artesian basin some 700 meters or more then equip the bore with pumps etc. The cost of this would have exceeded $110,000 We have saved the Markwell's over $100,000 with the implementation of our system.
Results & Observations
Bore water quality corrected immediately. Algae & scale in turkey's nest and pipes removed in 10 days . Troughs had to be cleaned of green slime from dead algae each day over this period. The cattle water intake is monitored by computer on this property to regulate urea dosing. The cattle fluid intake prier to our installation in Nov was monitored at a very desperate 3Lt per head per day for 350Kg weaners. Just four days after installation was complete we contacted Nicholas & Joanne to find they were astonished to see the intake per head of cattle increased to 35Lt per head per day. Later that month this had increased in a hot spell to peak at 60 Lt per day Urea is now able to be used when needed without the cattle rejecting it due to taste. We also fitted up the Markwell's truck with a Reactor energiser kit to improve on economy de-carbon the engine and injectors , increase power, and reduce exhaust emission by up to 80%
We wish to thank Nicholas and Joanne for their enthusiasm and their interest. There has been even more interest since the March edition of the Qld Country Life where a story on the Markwell's cell grazing methods included the advantages they gained from the Reactor System.
