Last week Nikken put up something on their website about using sweet potatoes to show the benefits of PiMag water, so I decided to do it and post about it here.
The demonstration requires 2 sweet potatoes, one set up in PiMag water and the other set up in the water from your tap. After 2 or 3 weeks you should see a difference between the two potatoes.
I decided to use 3 sweet potatoes because my tap water comes from a well and is already pretty good, just doesn’t taste that great. So I have one potato in PiMag water from our Nikken Aqua Pour, the second potato in the water from our well, and the third potato in the chlorinated water from my son’s preschool.
Today is day 1 of the test and there isn’t much to see. At this point they’ve been in the water for about 5 minutes. My expectation is that the potato in the PiMag water from our Aqua Pour will sprout the fastest and look the best. The one in our well water will do almost as well and maybe lag behind in development to the PiMag potato. Since the purpose of chlorine in water is to kill things, I don’t expect the “city” potato to do very well at all.
I plan to update this in 3 days or so and see if anything has happened yet. I will also try to find a better background so that the potatoes stand out a little better.
UPDATE DAY 4
I took some pictures today to show you how the potato test is going. The one in the well water hasn’t had any changes that I can see, so I didn’t take any of that one and focused on the other two. The potato in the chlorinated water from my son’s pre-school has been peeling a little bit as you can see in the picture to the left. I don’t know if that is a result of the chlorine drying the potato out or not but the other potatoes aren’t doing that.
I was surprised when I looked at the potato in the Pi water from our Aqua Pour. It has 2 roots that have started to grow from it. I knew that it would eventually but I didn’t expect them to start growing after only 4 full days of soaking in that water. I know that it doesn’t mean anything conclusive, but it is exciting to see.
I will update again in a few days.
