One of the important elements in mechanized irrigation is to know the relation between suction force (matric force) and soil moisture, which is referred to as moisture curve. The shape and coefficients of this curve are influenced by the texture and structure of the soil and can change with soil structure modification.  The most important goals of this study were to evaluate the effect of using zeolite on water holding capacity and coefficients of moisture curve patterns of two sandy and loamy soil texture, the effect of using zeolite on the shape and soil moisture curve coefficients based on various models, some of them so far in Iran, zeolite was added to soils at levels of consumption (2, 5 and 10%). The moisture content of each soil was determined at various points in 12 points using a Dicagon machine.  Soil moisture curve coefficients using software and fittings of six Brooks and Corey models, Kosugi, Durner, Fredlund and Xing,  VanGenuchten and Seki. The results indicate that in all models, the parameter value increases with the use of zeolite and increase the level of use. Water storage capacity also increases with the use of zeolite.  Other results showed that the best model for estimating the moisture curve of laryngeal and sandy soils of the Darren model is weakest and the weakest models in the lush soils of the broccoli model and Kasughi model and in the sandy soil of the Brooksouli model Blindness and model-gnuchten Shand.
