Rugby Pitch Irrigation
Dry summer weather can mean rugby pitches can become dangerous to play on at the start of the season.
A Range of Rugby Pitch Solutions
Depending on your budget Access Irrigation can offer a variety of rugby pitch irrigation systems. For example, travelling sprinklers which water the pitch in one or two passes, or temporary watering systems where risers are moved along the pitch to water a section at a time. Costs vary from between a few hundred pounds for a temporary rugby pitch sprinkler system to around £14,000 for a multi-pitch travelling sprinkler system.
Travelling Sprinklers for Rugby Pitches
For league Division One rugby clubs and educational centres, a travelling sprinkler or a reel irrigator can be used to irrigate single or multiple rugby pitches. The system includes a water storage tank and pump, pipework to each pitch and a single travelling sprinkler.
The travelling sprinkler irrigation system consists of a water-powered tractor unit which moves the sprinkler along the pitch. Before use, the tractor unit is placed at one end of the rugby pitch and a steel wire is attached to a sturdy post at the other end. The variable diameter sprinkler sits on top of the tractor unit.
Temporary Rugby Pitch Sprinklers
For a low cost option our temporary sprinkler package can be run from an adequate mains water supply and is designed to cover a pitch in 10 moves. The package includes the efficient NAAN 501U sprinkler heads and metal sled risers, it also includes hose trolleys to make relocating the sprinklers even easier.
If an adequate mains water supply is not available the above can be supplied with a water storage tank, pump and connection pipework.
