How much water does a sports pitch need?
A grass football or rugby pitch will loose 3mm of water per day on a hot Summer day. On a 68m x 110m pitch, this is the equivalent of 22,440 litres per day. However, even in the Summer there will normally be some rainfall (45mm on average in July), so the nett water requirement for an average year would be 1.5mm per day.
This watering package will provide more than enough water for the pitch, even if there is no rain at all, providing the equivalent of 4mm of water per day.
The system requires a mains water supply of at least 1,250 litres per hour and a single phase power supply. A concrete base needs to be made for the tank and the pump needs to be protected from the weather.
Price includes delivery but remote areas may be extra. The tank on this system is large and it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure they have suitable offloading facilities eg. forklift and lifting straps. If you wish the tank to be craned off the lorry there is a significant additional charge for this – please call for a quote.
