Inspired by the need to keep a half century old family orchard alive, Root Quencher is a subsurface watering and irrigation system that brings effective, yet simple underground watering innovation to the garden and landscape industry.
Root Quencher saves 50% water (versus sprinkler-based watering) and integrates with existing watering systems, or can perform as a standalone device to water plants and trees. It is fully adjustable to coordinate with root depth while the flow controls promote deep root growth. Made in the USA with high quality recycled ABS material, Root Quencher waters and fertilizes directly at the roots.
“It’s not enough to simply water the surface of the soil,” said Robert Summers. “A tree’s deep roots also need to receive water to keep the tree healthy. Deep watering can be the difference between a healthy tree and a dying tree.”
How it works:
The Root Quencher easily installs just inside the canopy of your tree, fruit tree or shrub and connects seamlessly to your existing irrigation system (dig a hole, cut into the sprinkler/irrigation line, add a T fitting to connect the Root Quencher to the water line, adjust water valve and turn irrigation on to fill chamber and water directly at the roots) or as a standalone device.
Adjust the depth of the Root Quencher device for plant and tree needs and soil conditions ranging from 9 inches to 22 inches. Designed to be adjustable for all tree and plant needs as well as soil conditions, the Root Quencher delivers water and nutrients to your landscape in the most efficient and effective manner.
Directional plugs are available to focus the water exactly where you need it while the bottom chamber is 99% closed allowing for effective water and fertilizer containment, mixing and directional distribution.
Water fills the chambers and wicks out the holes with capillary action and absorbs laterally, vertically and down the root zone to nourish roots.
Three Telescoping Chambers contain and distribute water. Adjust depth for plant/tree needs and soil conditions from 9” to 22”
Water Distribution Holes facilitate channeling of water. Directional plugs available to focus the water exactly where you need it.

Root Quencher includes a chamber cap with vent holes for air circulation with easy access to flow controls and fertilization. The flow control valve balances the water output with other devices in targeted zones and adjusts water output for specific plant and tree requirements while the three telescoping chambers holds and distributes water. The water distribution holes facilitate the channeling of water.
