Capillary Irrigation System
Conserving water through sustainable drainage systems for today's sustainable urban city
Polypipe Capillary Irrigation technology can make a little water go a long way, using water management systems consisting of geocellular structures and patented geotextiles to release stored water by a process known as 'capillary action', or 'wicking'. This allows moisture controlled sub surface irrigation of soft landscapes and green areas, when used in conjunction with specially selected soil types.
Our water management systems are capable of capture, treatment, conveyance and storage of water where it falls (at source), so it can be re-used to keep plant life watered. Sub surface capillary technology eliminates evaporation, requires no maintenance and allows controlled attenuation and release when used in conjunction with a managed water strategy.
