1. OE background information and industry.
Omni Enviro Water Systems began in NSW, Australia, where they have been used and tested by some of the largest farms and municipalities for many years. They’re now becoming a rapidly growing necessity in U.S. agriculture. These water systems have created such a marketing advantage for growers and producers that many are reluctant to share information on their success for fear of losing their competitive edge.
Omni Enviro’s mission is to deliver technologies that are environmentally sustainable, socially responsible, and ethically sound for the benefit of the community and the environment.
While we are a business with normal business motives, we are even more driven by the ecological responsibility to deliver a technology to agriculture, municipalities, and human need that provides enormous benefit while conserving our most vital resource, water.
Though we are now focused on one industry, agricultural irrigation, we are expanding in parallel to other industries which have the same general needs but varied specific needs, and so must be approached in ways specific to each. Therefore, it is difficult to find a single description for our “industry” since that definition would have to change for each target group we approach.
For now we will talk about the agricultural irrigation industry.
The basics of farming deal with weather, soil, water, quality of seed product, and timing. Add market demand to that formula and we have a simple explanation of baseline farming. Obviously the farmers have no control over weather, but the approach to creating good soil, managing water, timing and meeting market demand have generated better products and services that reflect advances in our age of science. The need for better, more consistent and productive end product has become increasingly critical as our populations have increased and quality and amount of our natural resource of water has decreased in quality and predictable supply.^ Back to top
2. What are some of the primary challenges we face in our industry?
In this world of diminishing resources and rising prices, all industries must be able to do more with less. That is the future of our planet. In the United States, the agricultural industry typifies this problem. In agriculture, adequate water supplies are not a sure thing. The quality of the water has progressively worsened in many areas. Most soils are depleted, while the toxic build-up in soils negatively impacts the crops. Plants, like people, suffer commonly from dehydration. Using a great deal of water doesn’t insure full hydration or nutrition of plants because normal water molecule clusters are too large to enter the plant membrane. Rising overhead costs include the cost of fertilizer and pesticides; replacing irrigation pipes that suffer from scaling (a mineral plaque buildup inside the pipes) or adding caustic chemicals to attempt to remove scaling; the energy required to pump water; and the chemicals and time necessary to attempt to desalinate soil that has built up a toxic salt content. Salinity is one of the most serious agricultural problems that farmers face. The accumulation of salts in soil capillaries leads to a sharp decrease in plant fertility. Ninety-nine percent of all plant diseases are water borne.
We’ll punctuate the problem with one grower’s story. A grower with groves of pistachio trees saw water prices go from $500k to $2 million in a year. Due to the salinity in soil, inferior water supplies, and depleted soil fertility, production fell from six million pounds the previous year to 3.8 million pounds the following year. The dollar loss ran about $4 million. We could say that this grower is the poster child for a hard-working industry. And it will only get worse.
Our specific area of expertise deals with the little understood science of magnetics—more specifically, putting magnetic resonance on water to make it more productive.
This concept requires an educational process that can be, and usually is, a towering challenge. Presentations are met with cynicism and skepticism most often. But the results of magnetically charged water on crops can only excite the uninitiated user. The concept of getting more plant for less water is an exciting idea in agriculture.; all of this without the need for energy usage or maintenance. There is nothing to change, clean, or replace. Unheard of.
We have to find ways to help farmers understand how important this science is to the successful future of each farmer. This translates clearly into it being important for the future of successful farming world-wide.
Having said this, there are those farmers who are getting as much water as they need and the quality is just fine with them. They don’t realize how much they could improve their product and financial status by employing this technology. I’d call this satisfied mode of thinking “the curse of success.” Settling for “good enough” isn’t the answer. We must all look for better ways to conduct business. A good example of this philosophy is exemplified in how it took thirty years for farmers to move from flood irrigation to drip irrigation, a way to use water more effectively.
We must be able to show farmers how success in farming has more to do with the quality of the water than the amount of the water. It’s understandable that our broad range of positive results makes this product sound like snake oil to some skeptics. It accomplishes too much to be believable when revealed in conversation or presentation. But when combined with testimonials, testing, and actual results, we provide a compelling story and reason to embrace this technology.^ Back to top
3. What solutions are we contributing to overcome these challenges?
We promise more plant for less water, as well as more animal for less water. Omni Enviro brings a proprietary approach of magnetic science to the farming community as a remarkably effective solution. By putting magnetic resonance on water, we restructure water molecule clusters into much smaller clusters made up of six water molecules each, a size and shape that is recognized by the plant as bio-friendly to its cells, and therefore more bio-available. This water carries more oxygen and nutrients into the cells of the plants, using less water in the process. This solubility and dissolvability creates fuller hydration with less water. The result is greater yields, better end products in term of size and flavor, longer shelf life, healthier and sturdier plants. While elevating the crop-related benefits, we cut down overhead by decreasing the amounts of fertilizer, pesticides, and energy formerly required. That’s because healthier, better-hydrated plants are more robust and resistant to a variety of problems that typical irrigation water can’t solve. The reduction of viscosity in the water by magnetic resonance means a reduction in friction, so pumps don’t work as hard pumping water, thus saving energy. In one experiment, one of our units was attached to the base of a fire hose. As a result, the water went thirty feet further, and the sound of the engine pumping the water reduced 15% in RPM’s as it needed less energy to pump water with lowered viscosity.
Soil salinity is one of the most serious agricultural problems that farmers face. Our product washes away 3 to 4 times more salts from the soil than non-magnetized water, because it breaks the salt down into such fine particles. And it won’t allow scaling, which is the buildup of mineral plaque inside the irrigation pipes.
OE Magnetized water, created by specific inductions, reduces the amount of pathogens that travel in water. Pathogens are a food source for bacteria, which create a wide variety of health problems for plants and humans.
The benefits of magnetized water spills over to animals and humans. The result of drinking this water has produced a decrease in mortality rate of 200-300% in chickens and an earlier maturity rate 3 to 5 days. Pig litters are larger and the piglets grow faster. Cows produce more buttermilk.
On the grander scale, great suppliers of water, like the Colorado River and Lake Mead, are in jeopardy of being unable to meet demand as a result of elevated need against either stationery or diminishing resources. Reducing the amount of water necessary to water crops, keep the inner city and suburbs green, and supply human needs is not just an option, it is a vital necessities. Omni Enviro Water systems reduce water needs from 10-30% on average. At the same time it reconfigures the water molecule clusters into living, energized water that is highly productive with enormous health ramifications. Again, it does more with less.
We refer to magnetized water as “living water, “in that it is not only more bio-available, but facilitates the delivery of more oxygen and minerals to cells. Non-magnetized water may lack in productivity to the point of being “dead water,” without nutritional elements in an efficient, bio-available form. A good example of this sort of water would be reverse osmosis water. Studies have shown that water without minerals bond with the minerals already in cells and leeches them out. There is no nutritional value in this sort of water, so nutrients must be added to counteract this problem. Meanwhile, the OE Water System allows minerals to be delivered to the plant in a more bio-available form, along with more oxygen. Reverse Osmosis water is especially negatively productive in humans.
In the home, the effects of hard water are dramatically reduced, allowing detergents to foam, and making the water friendly to the health of skin. Acting like a softener, the magnetized water is much more drinkable. It increases longevity of appliances, toilets, and any convenience that requires water. This water is perfect answer to eliminate the need for salt-based water softeners that put their salts back into the water table.^ Back to top
4. The most important message to convey to educate our clients?
Magnetic science is a very powerful science that has been with us for at least forty years. The first astronauts that went into outer space came back sick. At first it was felt they were ill from gravity deprivation. The illness turned out to be from magnetic field deprivation. As a result of that discovery, today’s Columbia Space Craft have magnetic field generators on them. The FDA sanctions the use of magnets on broken bones, noting they heal up to three times faster when magnets are applied to the area. MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) has been one of the most significant advances in Magnetic science—and all of science—having become a more accurate and safer way to accomplish what CAT scans do.
Magnetic science applied to the energizing of water is yet another powerful discovery that both figuratively and literally bears fruit for the entire planet. It is the future of farming. It does more with less. It creates more plant and more animal, with less water. The health ramifications go well beyond plants and into the community of man. It has been maintained that the major cause of disease and illness worldwide is dehydration. Solving that problem is not as much a matter of drinking more water as drinking the right water. Too many normal water molecule clusters are chaotically formed and too large to enter the cell’s semi-permeable membrane. So they bypass the cells and are sloughed. It takes a great deal of that water to create a healthy state of cellular hydration. But water with magnetic resonance applied to it is reconfigured into smaller, hexagonal water molecule clusters that more readily enter both plant and human cells because of their size and because these clusters are recognized as bio-friendly by the cells.
The ability to convert unhealthy water—or any water—into energized, hydrating water allows farmers to create healthier plants, healthier yields, and healthier profits, while using much less water.
This science carries over to humans who are already challenged by the increasingly toxic nature of our environment. Magnetized water helps boost the immune system in that it facilitates effective delivery of nutrients and removes toxins from the cells in a very efficient way. The bottom line on this means less load on the immune system, allowing it to more efficiently perform its daily task of healing and cell rebuilding.
If we consider the costs involved in treating illness and disease that could have been avoided by drinking healthy, hydrating water, we are talking sums of money beyond imagination.^ Back to top

6. Where do we believe our industry is heading and what role do we foresee your company playing?
We believe that the industry has no choice but to explore technologies that will not only make the business of farming profitably viable and productive, but will make it ecologically responsible as insurance for the future. It is not an easy thing to take an industry based on tradition to embrace ideas as difficult to understand as the application of magnetic resonance on water to accomplish their goals. Traditionally it has been felt that using less of any resource means less productivity. Our role is to educate the industry—and other target groups in need of our services—so they may profit from the use of magnetic science to make enormous gains in productivity and health, while conserving a natural resource on which our lives are based. We believe that we are not only the future of farming worldwide, but a very important answer for human health issues. The quality of life, either plant, animal, or human, is based on the quality of our water.
We believe, based on our results and rapidly growing recognition of this technology that we are going from smoldering embers level of usage toward a grassfire of acceptance. We began our business by giving out units for testing in actual crop growth situations, asking only for a minor deposit and giving a money back guarantee. We no longer need to do that, as the results of our product have become obvious and the word has spread rapidly as more substantial growers use our product and create a comfort level for the rest of the industry. This is true not only of the USA, but in Australia, where this technology has been in place for five years.
We began with agricultural irrigation, and are spreading to municipalities and industry, as well as home applications. Wherever water is being used, that is where we need to be.
Our technology makes any water better, healthier, and more productive.
When you consider the declining and inferior quality and large amounts of water we experience in our homes; swimming pools; gardens; city parks; lawns; irrigation; public bathrooms; and a list that would amount to pages of items, we are inescapably proximal to and reliant on water. The measures taken to make that water safe to drink add toxins to our bodies and to the cells of plants that are counterproductive to health and vitality.
We make any water better. And in the spirit of our planet’s future, we do more with less.^ Back to top
