Effluent WOFs are the only way to effectively trouble-shoot effluent performance.

Assessments should be undertaken every 3-5 years depending on system age and useage.


All assessments undertaken by an Effluent WOF qualified professional, including irrigator, nutrient loading and storage adequacy checks and testing of system pressure, flow, application depth and uniformity.

Irrigator Performance Assessments

Irrigator performance assessments are the only way to effectively trouble-shoot irrigator performance.


Assessments should be undertaken every 3-5 years depending on system age and usage.

Getting irrigation right is critical for flower growers, I’ve been using Sentek probes for over 5-years and find them really easy to understand - they take away the guesswork, The Sentek TrisSCAN sensor also allows me to monitor my fertliser use. This has saved money makes sure I give the plants exactly what they need and means no nutrient leaching.

Primary Insight have provided me with great service since taking over the management of my probes – Cindy quickly identified and resolved the telemetry issue I’d been having.
