We design, install and service sports field irrigation including high schools. With Sydney's heat and unreliable rainfall patterns, irrigating your sports field will ensure it is in peak condition and will help prevent injury, as combined with a good maintenance program the field will be lush and green with thick grass cover, giving a softer landing if someone is diving for the ball or being tackled. It will also help prevent costly re-turfing due to poor health of turf during hot, dry weather periods.
We can install a complete new system with tanks, pumps, weather stations, flow sensors and internet control. All these items installed together will give you the most water efficient system possible. A large tank can save thousands of litres of water equating to thousands of dollars saved each year (100 square metres of roof space will collect 1,000L of water for every 10mm of rain).
The Smart controller such as Hunter Hydrawise will adjust run times based on temperatures, the flow sensor will monitor the flow and alert us if a zone starts using more water than usual due to a broken pipe or stuck on valve, so the problem can be rectified immediately before many thousands of litres of water has been wasted without anybody knowing about it.
High school football fields can be installed during school holidays to reduce the disturbance for students. We also have a turf cutter so we can remove the turf prior to trenching and re-instate it once the pipe and sprinklers have been installed. This will significantly reduce downtime, allowing the field to be used within a week of the installation.
