THE AQUIFER PIPE – A NEW FORM OF IRRIGATION
The aquifer pipe is a safe and cost effective to keep your lawn or garden hydrated, while increasing safety. We suggest putting away everything you know about current irrigation and think about how this can be applied to benefit your property.
WATER UNDER THE SURFACE
The aquifer pipe sits 12 inches below the ground and creates a virtual water table. It’s 3 inches in diameter and makes a saturated water zone. This, in turn, creates an underground moisture plume that keeps things green.
Sprinklers and drip water systems keep liquids at the surface, hoping it gets to the roots, but most of it evaporates or turns into run off. The aquifer pipe method saturates plants at the roots, where they need it most.
LESS WASTE AND LIABILITY
With traditional irrigation, especially sprinklers, you typically see a lot of overspray, which throws water everywhere. Water lands on the side of buildings, creating wear and tear around the window sills and doors. It also leaves white scum on the windows and walls, causing discoloration, and affecting the curb appeal.
When the excess water lands on metal, it’ll start to eat away at the base. You will end up with signs falling over and handrails breaking, all of which create liabilities.
Furthermore, the excess runoff goes off into the blacktop areas and the asphalt. Before you know it, you have cracks, and the cracks lead to potholes. The repairs never end…
THE SUBSURFACE ADVANTAGE
The good news is that with an aquifer pipe, everything is subsurface. Unlike with sprinkler systems, which waste excess water, this method sends moisture deep down into your plants and lawn.
The aqua pipe not only uses regular water, but more importantly, it will redirect your greywater. This is the run off from our showers and sinks, from laundry and air conditioning condensation, which is normally lost.
THE BOTTOM LINE ($)
By reusing your greywater with Grey4Green, you will save money. You won’t spend extra cash pouring drinkable water onto your land.
Instead, take the water you’ve already paid for and use it for irrigation. You will lower your maintenance bill, while keeping everything nice, lush, and beautiful.
