EarthCore™ Non-Chemical Water Conditioner FAQ

1.     How does the EarthCore™ work?

The EarthCore™ basically does three things. It reduces the water surface tension, making water wetter and softer. The next thing it does is imparts negative electrons into the water. The third thing is it imparts a frequency into the water. All three things create a newly structured water to resemble the natural water structure that Nature used to have.

2.     Should you or do you install an EarthCore™ under the sink?

Generally, no. But in very special circumstances, we can do so.

3.     Can I install an EarthCore in a house that is older than 1950?

NO. Not unless you have replaced the old pipes, because what is really holding the pipes together is the limescale build up! The EarthCore™ will gradiently clean out the pipes which will destroy the pipes’ water integrity, causing old pipes to leak.

4.     I have limescale build up in my pipes; will installing the Earth Core™ help?

Yes! In California and many of the Western states, in a couple of months, the pipes will be cleaned up. In the East Coast, especially down in the south where the mineral content is very high, it may take 7-9 months to clean up the pipes.

5.     Can I use the EarthCore™ on my city water?

Yes! Very beneficial!

6.     Can I use the EarthCore™ on my well water?

Yes! Very beneficial! The Earth Core™ is especially good for agriculture, aquaculture, and animal husbandry applications. The imparted properties to the water will produce strong, healthy animals and plants and increase fertility of both plants and animals.  For more info, please call me at 727-447-2344 or e-mail me at

7.     I have high TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) water; will the EarthCore™ help?

Yes! If you have up to 2000ppm (Parts Per Million) in your well water, the EarthCore™ will definitely allow you to utilize this water for agriculture purposes. Above 2200ppm, we have more advanced multi-headed EarthCore™ units, which will require testing to see how compatible they are for your specific application.

8.     How does the EarthCore™ make an organic garden do better?

The EarthCore™ basically does three things. It reduces water surface tension, making the water wetter and softer. The next thing it does is imparts negative electrons into the water. The third thing is that it imparts a frequency into the water. All three things create a newly structured water to resemble what Mother Nature used to have. This type of “living water” enhances growth in a very positive and healthy manner as compared to Reverse osmosis water, a “dead water” type frequency, which induces sickness and disease.  When you add the fact that RO water is also lacking in minerals and highly acidic, the list of negatives just increases.

9.     Does EarthCore™ kill fungus in the water?

No. The EarthCore™ does not kill anything. It creates an environment where the oxygen is in a more active form, which is not conducive for fungus to grow. Those people who cannot water the leaves of their plants at night can now water during the night without any fear of fungal issues. [Watering during the day results in 85% water evaporation. The correct time to water the plants is after sunset and just before sunrise as the dew is coming down and thus evaporation is very minimal.  This allows the water to penetrate the soil deeply, picking up minerals. After sunrise, these minerals will be pulled back up to the surface to feed the plants].

10. Can Earth Core handle algae problems?

Yes, EarthCore can handle algae Challanges in water pipes, evaporators, ponds and many applications.

Today, we have multi-cored Earth Core so we can meet most challanges.

11. Can Earth Core remove old limescale in my pipes and hot water heater?

Yes,  as a matter of fact we will not install Earth Core in a plumbing system that is older than 1950.  Becasue the Earth Core Water Conditioner will fully remove the limescale build up in a pipe and it old pipe does not have water intergerty then it could cause a water leak.  So, if the pipes are new or not so new, the conditioner will prevent limesscale build up and extend the life expectancy of the pipes, hot water heather, dishwasher, clothwasher… any appliance connected to the water line.

12. Why do you recommend Earth Core any and all growing operations including Organic Farming?

The number one reason is the re-structured water naturally prevents fungus from growing on the leave surface.  This allows the farmer to water in the night time (from sunset to just before sun rise).  This is the time where evaporation is at its lowest!  This action alone will save 85% Water

13. Does one still need to use wetting agents?

No!  With multi-core possibilty we can custome make Earth Core so as to over come most hard water and no longer needing any additional wetting agents.

14. Can Earth Core reduce water consumption?

Yes, depending on application one can save from 20 to 60% (60%  was in a green house)

Can Earth Core reduce chemical, fertilizer use.

Yes, becasue the Earth Core makes the water wetter and softer.  It will create better penentration, better      absorbtion, and better adhision.  So, not just it will save on fertilizers, but with antibiotics for aquaculture applications, herbacides, pesticides…etc.  Do your own test but one can expects from30 to 70% savings and on certain item even greater savings.

15. Can Earth Core help in Organic Farming?

Yes!!  Utilizing Earth Core Water Conditioner the “Salt” in the soil or ever if you live next to the ocean and get seawater spray and have salt damages from the spray.  Earth Core can “nutrilize the salt” and make the water less corrisive.  We installed one unit in a hotel next to the ocean which has frequent browning of th lawn grasses from the salt water spray.  They were also experancing lots of fungus issues as well.  After they instilled the water conditioner, not just the lawn stop browning, but the fungus stop and the ground started to have earthworms,  over time the entire propertity including the grounds next to the seawall had earthworms, proving that the unit indeed “nutrilized the salt” in order for the earthworms to survive and do well.

16. Can Earth Core help in Organic ranching?

Yes, with conditioned water the water structure

    Found it innovative.But if earth core product to treat unto 7000 TDS are made available,can help in mitigating the exodus of farmers from rural area to urban centres ESP in south India due to deep bore well hard water. Can I be enlightened on this scope.
    It can rally help the loosing and struggling farmers.I will be elated to get a positive reply. Great job. Thanks.

      Dear Dr. Kumaravel,

      Back in 2012 you sent me this comment by email. At that time, I did not have a solution for your 7000 TDS, however, I now have at least 3 possible solutions which potentially could be combined into one system.

      One must understand that in dealing with water, it is not just the TDS but also what the TDS consists of. If you can send me several of your water analysis’ we can start the process of experimenting and proving to ourselves that we can in fact handle these specific well-water. What range of TDS/contamination can we actually address? Something to also keep in mind with regards to high salt tolerable plants, such as celery, potatoes, plantains, which are great staples – they are able to tolerate very high TDS once the water has passed through my Water Conditioners.

      I have a record of commonly spraying the plants at 3-4,000 TDS and as high as 8,500 TDS on occasions. However, that was all done before my new discoveries.

      Please feel free to contact me to discuss further. Email me at or call me at (727) 447-2344 or Skype me at winstoncathykao
