Drip Line Irrigation
Capillary Concrete™ has developed a revolutionary technique of subsurface irrigation on steep bunker faces, which is part of the Capillary Concrete™ patented system. It is changing the way bunkers are being managed. There is no need to irrigate the bunker faces to achieve firm conditions. The drip line irrigation used in many installations is Netafim Techline®, and the amount of water emitted is determined by the design and the bunker condition.

Drip-line irrigation technology
If the underlying soil does not provide enough moisture to be fed through the Capillary Concrete™ layer, additional water must be provided. Instead of watering the bunkersand from above, which is a bad way of applying water as it changes the weight and the playing surface, Capillary Concrete™ system of drip-line irrigation can be used. Capillary Concrete™ works like a sponge, if you provide water in one location, the moisture will spread througout the layer and moisturise the sand.
