Let's Get Technical

When installed underground, Hydrowick is backfilled with a sand curtain allowing for surface water to efficiently drain without typical issues found in conventional drainage systems. Never worry about sentiment impeding drainage or damaging systems.

Hydrowick maintains 18-20% moisture in the element which maintains healthy grass and minimizes surface scarring.

The 1 inch diameter element has proven to increase drainage of push-up greens by over 50% when compared to conventional drainage systems.

All surfaces can be played within 24 hours of Hydrowick being installed. This allows for courses and playing fields to be open longer and in-turn serve more guests.

The size of the pores of the Hydrowick element and its unique installation technique ensures that no ground composition/silting will impede drainage capabilities.


A Seamless Installation

The Aqua-Terra® patented sandbanding installation process ensures a quick installation, minimalizing invasiveness and reducing unsightly wear and closure needed for traditional piped drainage.

Our team provides world-wide service and works with you to provide the best solution.
