Product Description:
Not a wetting agent or polymer, Hydretain is a blend of hygroscopic humectants that convert soil moisture vapor into water droplets that plants can use.
What this product does is really incredible! Hydretain literally sucks the humidity out of the air to bring that water down into your grass root system. Now what that means is that because you’re getting water sucked into the roots from the air, you can reduce the watering requirements of your lawn by up to 50% or more!

Hydretain is one of those secret ingredients that golf courses, towns, and municipalities use to save on their water bills! So why can't we DIYers save too?
