Rain Delay is an economical problem solver. It is made up of granular crystals with a potassium polymer base designed to absorb water within minutes at a rate near 300:1. Rain Delay is an ideal drying agent for baseball fields and a wonderful soil amendment to hold water at the roots with an absorption rate 15 times the capacity of peat moss.
Rain Delay particles swell when exposed to water to form a clear gel. Unlike a sponge, in which water can be wrung out easily, these tiny reservoirs retain the absorbed water. This unique ability to hold absorbed water, even under pressure, is a primary benefit of using Rain Delay. One pound of Rain Delay can absorb up to 40 gallons of rain water.
