Better water naturally

DELTAwater pays it forward to new business in spring gardening campaign

Posted on August 24, 2021

DELTAwater solutions is supporting compost manufacturing business Ocean2earth Australia in a spring gardening campaign as part of its focus on supporting Australian made innovation.

We have purchased a palette of the compost, which launched in Australia in autumn, to help raise the profile of Ocean2earth which repurposes marine waste into a useful product.

We will send everyone who purchases a DELTAwater solutions water treatment conditioner during spring* a free bag of Ocean2earth Australia’s highly-concentrated, quality fish compost.

Alex and Dianne Panov founded DELTAwater solutions in Newcastle more than 25 years ago and recognise some of themselves in Ocean2earth, which collects marine waste from manufacturers and suppliers and turns it into a highly concentrated compost.

DELTAwater solutions manufactures a water treatment system with a small environmental footprint, which is power-free, maintenance free and chemical free.

“When we first started designing and manufacturing a water treatment system for the agricultural industry in the early 1990s, we were filling a void to make a product that wasn’t available. Ocean2earth Australia is a new company founded by two brothers, Tim and Kyran Crane from the NSW Far South Coast. They also saw a problem, marine waste going into our oceans and into landfill, and have put a lot of time, energy and effort into finding an innovative solution,” Dianne says.

DELTAwater solutions manufacture customised water conditioners to treat specific water problems including salinity, calcium-scale, water hardness, iron and corrosion.

Dianne says the combination of DELTA-treated water and Ocean2earth Australia fish compost in the garden was a powerful one.

“We have a lush garden at home thanks to our town water supply being treated by a DELTAwater conditioner, and in preparation for spring we mixed the Ocean2earth fish compost into our pots, herb, flower and garden beds and the results are already showing. It’s a great product that we are proud to support.”

Ocean2earth Australia started processing their compost in 2019 and after EPA approval, launched their product in autumn 2021. It is made using a whole new natural composting process which isn’t used anywhere else in Australia, utilising waste products destined for landfill, creating jobs and providing a product packaged for the small backyard market right through to large-scale fruit and vegetable growers.

Kyran says they’re rapt to have the support from DELTAwater solutions.

“We are just starting out and getting our product into the market and are on a rapid learning curve. To have the backing of another innovative Australian business which is so well established is terrific. Dianne and Alex’s generosity in paying it forward is something we never imagined, we are extremely grateful.”

  • Everyone who purchases a DELTAwater solutions water treatment conditioner during spring will get a free bag of Ocean2earth Australia’s highly-concentrated, quality fish compost. The offer will run until November 30, 2021.
