ABOUT AQUACHECK

We are an established South African based manufacturer and supplier of quality and affordable capacitance-based soil moisture monitoring equipment, designed to optimize the management of soil water. Our products also include self-developed, dedicated irrigation management software and full agronomy support.

OUR STORY

The use of capacitance soil moisture probes is seen as a vital tool in improving on-farm irrigation management. The need for a robust, reliable and affordable capacitance soil moisture probe lead to the start of AquaCheck in 2002. After a few years of research and development, production and marketing were launched in 2005.

Today AquaCheck is recognised across the world as a reliable, robust and affordable capacitance-based soil moisture probe manufacturer. From our manufacturing plant, based in Brackenfell, Cape Town, South Africa, we have manufactured and sold over 75 000 probes in more than 30 countries globally. Supported by the specialist knowledge and dedication of our agronomists, engineers, manufacturing team and support staff, AquaCheck added Telemetry, Self-Developed Irrigation Management Software and Agronomy Support to its product line.

Our products have applications in agriculture, sports and recreation as well as mining and environmental management.
