Temporary Pitch Watering Package is designed as a low cost method of watering a complete football or rugby pitch for sites with a reasonably good mains water supply. Being able to water the sports pitch during dry weather will ensure the pitch remains playable and that the grass will recover more quickly after games. Football pitches require a lot of water, making systems that water in a couple of passes very expensive for smaller clubs. This temporary pitch water package allows the full pitch to be watered over a 10 day period.
Why water the football pitch?
The Football Association recommend irrigation to help with germination and grass growth, especially if the pitch is well drained. In addition, very hot and dry weather causes issues with how the ball plays on the hard surface and can lead to an increase in injuries.
What’s included in the Temporary Pitch Watering Package
This complete package includes a set of sprinkler risers to water a strip across the width of the pitch, connecting hose and two hose reel carriers. A two zone battery operated controller is included to automate the watering of the strip. The package will allow the watering of a 68m x110m pitch in a 10 day period, watering a 68m x 11m strip each day in two zones. Watering will take 9 hours per zone (18 hours per day).
The temporary sports watering package includes:
- 6 sprinkler sleds with Naan sprinkler heads
- Connecting hose to connect between the sprinklers
- Hose to run from supply tap to pitch side
- Two heavy duty hose reel carriers
- 2-zone battery controller to water 3 sprinklers at a time
The system requires a mains water supply of at least 1,080 litres per hour and a minimum pressure of 3.0 bar at that flow.
Price includes delivery but remote areas may be extra.
