Watering an Artificial Turf Field?

It would seem ridiculous to water an artificial turf field but the makers and players of those fields all agree that watering can contribute to both safety and longevity of those fields. The following are some reasons to water an artificial sports playing field:

Watering artificial turf fields can:

  • Lubricate the surface which reduces injuries
  • Cools the surface so rug burns are minimized
  • Stabilize the surface which adds to the longevity of the field 
  • Keeps the surface moist which keeps the synthetic fibers from becoming brittle and breaking

When a major Illinois university built a new lacrosse field, they relied on Halloran & Yauch to design and install a watering system to keep the surface cool and safe. The specialized sprinkler heads can spray water over 100 feet and when not in use, disappear beneath the playing surface.

Just another reason why Halloran & Yauch should be your choice for irrigation. If it's for your sports field or just your lawn and rose garden, Halloran & yauch can deliver a system the competition can only dream of.
