Increases resistance to diseases

Due to a strengthened root system, plants are less susceptible to diseases. The sub-irrigation coupled to reduced frequency of watering promotes dry foliage.  Species that are susceptible to leaf pathogens respond well to AQUAMAT® sub-irrigation. 

Moreover, the individual pool sections are closed environments (capillary breaks every 10 ft).  This prevents the transmission of diseases from one section to another. The recourse to fungicides is therefore less frequent.
