how it works

Installation and Filling

Push the 10" long Root Seeker into the root-well. Remove Cap, attach the Reservoir, and fill (this can be done with one hand tied behind your back). In less than a minute you will be deep watering your new tree!  


While you do other things, the Root Seeker is deep soaking the the root-well. Gravity pushes the water down and out. No run-off, no evaporation, no wait! Drain time varies with soil type, but is within 15 minutes for normal soil.


5 gallons of water will soak the root-well of a small tree. All the feeder roots will have access to moisture and will use it over the next 7-10 days. Once drained, remove the Reservoirs if desired. They easily stack and store in your garage.

Compares Favorably to Bag Products

Tree I.V. Use on Small Trees and Shrubs

1) Tree I.V. is quick & easy to fill from any source, and it doesn't need to be adjusted during fill. 2) The stand-alone design does not pressure the tree or cover the trunk to invite insects and fungus. 3) Tree I.V. will soak the root-well with only 5-gallons. 15 gallons is overkill. 4) String trimmers and lawn mower debris will not poke holes in Tree I.V. 5) Reservoirs are easy to remove, stack, and store if desired.

Tree I.V. Use on Larger-Sized New Trees

Tree I.V. systems can be set around the drip zone to encourage a deep, sprawling root system (bags dump at the trunk). 7) Tree I.V. drains quickly to help settle the aerated soil with a new planting. 8) The surface and/or mulch remains dry, thereby using less water and promoting deeper root development. 9) Reservoirs are portable to any Root Seeker locations. 10) Plugs and Lids are available so you can Fill & Haul water to remote trees.
