Soil amendment/moisture control

Optional 'thank-you' note:
I ran across some youtube videos where people are using diapers (the crystals in them) in their soil for moisture control.
Some say this is not an organic way, others say it is OK since you are not introducing chemicals like fertilizers, herbicides, similar and that the crystals are inert.
Has anyone tried this method?
Or is it just a bad idea and why?
If it does what it is claimed to do, it sure would make the watering chore less of a chore.
Oh, if it is OK to use, will it absorb compost tea and feed the plants automatically too?
I cannot find 'clean' manure or 'clean'
where I live. ALL are contaminated with herbicide chemicals.
I have to hand water everything due to my situation.
300 plants is a LOT of work.
NON ASSUMPSIT. I am by no means an expert at anything. Just a lucky guesser.
