An example of a recent trial

Back in 2019, I was asked to run some trials for a device that clamps onto a hosepipe or main water pipe, with the aim of promoting plant health by creating a magnetising effect on the molecules in tap water. To test this, I raised identical plants of both indoor and outdoor varieties, using the device on one half of the plants and standard tap water on the others. They were all watered when required, with data recorded for just about everything you can think of; watering dates, foliage/flower size, height, flowering times, flowering period, etc.. All results were then typed up into three different reports; a simple, easy-to-read data sheet, a more in-depth data sheet, and a written summary on my findings. All data came in extremely handy for the client and helped them market the product much easier having had an independent testing body to back up all of their claims. The client then decided that it would be beneficial to ask half a dozen willing members of the public to test the device and report on their findings, which unsurprisingly matched all of the data that I had recorded. This proved that the claims I made were 100% accurate and honest.
