Your tennis court is only as good as your irrigation system. Water keeps a court firm, gives it rich, dark color, and ensures stable footing for tennis players.
Water can be introduced to a court through a sub-surface irrigation system or an above ground irrigation system. The vast majority of new courts are installed with sub-surface irrigation. The HydroCourt sub-surface irrigation system has been proven to reduce court expenses and simplify daily maintenance in all climates. A well-designed sprinkler system is also a very effective way to deliver the water Har-Tru courts need.
A clay court, like a sponge, holds water. This water evaporates over the course of a day. Irrigation regimens should be designed to replenish water lost during the day.
HydroCourt is a self-regulating system that is fully adjustable to player preference and designed to water your Har-Tru tennis court from below the surface.
HydroCourts are constructed with six individually controlled cells. Each cell is monitored by a separate water-filled control box. Water enters the control box and flows through pipes to cells lined with a chemical-resistant 20 mm thick hyperlastic liner.
As the water level in the control box rises, the water level under the court also rises. You control the amount of moisture in the court surface by adjusting the water level in the control box up or down. It's that simple.
Choosing the right sprinkler head makes all the difference. We carry only brands and models of sprinkler heads, valves, and controllers that we know work well on Har-Tru courts. The sprinklers we recommend feature stainless steel sleeves and the latest in rotor and spray technology. Additionally, we offer controllers and valves to match all your irrigation needs.
A well-designed sprinkler solution will simulate a short rain. An eight-head system with proper pressure and volume can completely saturate your court in just two minutes. The result is uniform distribution without a lot of down time.
