EarthBuster ground absorption test

Title: Field Testing the EarthBuster Device for Enhancing Soil Drainage through Severe Hardpan by Pneumatic Soil Fracturing
By: Designed and written for EarthBuster by Jack Pelham and Steve Krug.
Date: 5 October, 2015

Summary: We measured the rate at which water is absorbed into the ground in a field known to have a very thick and compacted layer of “hardpan” beneath the surface. The average (untreated) test site took 17 minutes and 30 seconds to absorb 5 gallons of water. Then we used the EarthBuster device on a nearby area in the same field, and we measured the absorption at the spots where we had used the EarthBuster. On these sites, the same 5 gallon measure of water was absorbed in an average of 2 minutes and 50 seconds. In other words, the “EarthBusted” ground absorbed the water in about 1/6 the time it took for the untreated ground to do it! We think this has some very encouraging implications for agriculture, groundskeeping, and the septic industry.
