Rain­maker H20

The au­then­tic source for nat­u­ral ion­ized wa­ter.

The Rain­maker H2O cre­ates a mea­sur­able in­crease in wa­ter’s abil­ity to hy­drate plant and an­i­mal tis­sues, pen­e­trate soils and con­serve wa­ter. Fruits and veg­eta­bles grow faster and health­ier, have a higher BRIX read­ing and taste great. Plants wa­tered with Rain­maker H20 also re­quire less wa­ter. The de­vice does not use fil­tra­tion or ad­di­tives of any kind and there­fore re­quires no main­te­nance or fil­ter car­tridges. A full house model is also avail­able through cwet.ca. $275 Prun­ing and Train­ing
