Turftech has invested heavily in both personnel with sports turf construction expertise, and world-class drainage equipment. Drainage design is site specific and dependent on underlying soils, sporting requirements and available finance.
Sports turf drainage consists of installing an in-ground primary and secondary drainage system. The primary pipe system consists of a main drain and laterals spaced at 5 to 10 meter centres. The lateral drains collect water from the secondary drainage system and feed it into the main collector drain which takes the water off site. The secondary drainage system is usually constructed using one of the following methods:
- Gravel banding
Turftech owns state of the art survey equipment which is used to map the area to be drained. This technology uses GPS to determine slope, hollows and high points, and assists with drainage system design. We operate fully automated laser guided equipment, ensuring accurate grades are achieved when trenching.
