The Temporary Sports Pitch Watering is designed as a low cost method of watering a complete football or rugby pitch for sites with limited water supplies. In a warm, dry Summer many smaller football and rugby clubs find it impossible to water their pitches with sufficient water, leaving the pitch hard and dry and compromising the safety of the players.
How much water does a sports pitch need?
A grass football or rugby pitch will lose 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 3.6mm of water per day.
This complete package includes a set of sprinkler risers to water a strip across the width of the pitch, connecting hose and suitable hose reel, underground pipework to pitch side valve boxes and a water storage tank with submersible pump. The package will allow 25mm of water to be added to a 70 x 110m pitch in a 10 day period, watering a 70m x 11m strip each day, taking 7.5 hours per day.
The Temporary Sports Pitch Watering system includes:
- 7 sprinkler sleds with Naan sprinkler heads
- Connecting hose with heavy duty hose reel carrier
- 5 take off points and 150m of underground pipe
- Single phase submersible auto-start pump
- 12,500 litre water storage tank with air gap
The system requires a mains water supply of at least 1,000 litres per hour (ideally 1,200 lph) and a single phase power supply. A concrete base needs to be made for the tank. As an option a timer can be added to allow night time watering.
Price includes delivery but remote areas may be extra.
