Debco Saturaid

Saturaid is a unique and worthwhile addition to all gardens. It saves you time and money as it reduces water use by up to 50%.

Please note that Saturaid is not a water storing crystal. It is not a jelly like substance that holds water in the soil. It is a granular soil wetter made from coir and other non toxic ingredients. When applied, it channels water to the root zone where it is needed most. Saturaid promotes even water distribution so there is less water run off and dry spots in potting mix and soils. It makes watering, rainfall and fertilisers more effective, even in sandy, clay or compacted soils.

Apply Saturaid to all areas of the garden including indoor and outdoor pot plants, shrubs, garden beds and lawns. As Saturaid is made from eco-friendly materials it is safe to use in the vegetable garden. Saturaid works immediately.

  • Hi Alex, that's fantastic to hear. Thank you for sharing this feedback - Jenna, Tui Team


  • Hi, we've moved into a house with terrible soil quality under the first 30cm, but the garden is barked throughout. Can I use Saturaid on top of the bark, ie will it water through, or do I need to scrape aside the bark and apply it underneath? Thanks.


    • Hi Gretchen, usually the most effective option to get an even spread of the SaturAid is to scrape aside the bark and apply the SaturAid evenly onto the ground. However, this is not very practical as your garden is already covered in bark. It is a more realistic option to spread the SaturAid over the bark and water it in, it will wash off the bark and into the ground. The SaturAid will still be effective this way.
