Hard Water 225

Specially designed to solve the challenges of hard water










Universol Hard Water 225 is developed for application in hard irrigation water. It promotes compact growth in flowering plants and is ideal for hardening off plants. Universol Hard Water 225 acidifies the irrigation water and neutralizes bicarbonate. The N:K ratio of 2:5 means this product can be used in combination with water containing high nitrogen levels and with nitrogen fertilizers (e.g. nitric acid).

  • Contains all elements; NPK, magnesium and trace elements

  • Always the same composition thanks to stringent quality control

  • The pH of the soil remains stable as a result of the HCO3- buffering effect

  • Improves the quality of your irrigation water, by taking out bicarbonates

  • Dissolves entirely and quickly because of the special ingredients and the ‘Bright Solution System’
