Eco-Mat Subsurface Irrigation: How to Install the Eco-Mat

Hunter Industries’ Eco-Mat is a bold new in

All Product Videos

Features

Designed to suit a variety of hard-to-irrigate areas, the Eco-Mat uses a specifically engineered combination of inline emitter tubing and fleece, which evenly disperses water from under the surface. Eco-Mat consists of Hunter’s specialized fleece wrapped inline emitter tubing (Eco-Wrap), attached to specialized fleece. Eco-Mat is then installed in the soil to be irrigated, directly under the plant material. When water is emitted, the Eco-Wrap fills and in turn, saturates the Eco-Mat. The Eco-Mat not only makes subsurface drip a viable solution, it makes it a great one. Since there’s never water on the surface, high-traffic turf areas in places like amusement parks, city parks, and commercial complexes can be used all day without the need to budget time for overhead irrigation or worry about vandalism.

The Eco-Mat is also proven to be a highly efficient solution for green roof irrigation. Green roofs use specially engineered soils or growing media that allow for drainage at a much higher rate than natural soil. It is difficult to grow plants in this kind of growing media because it holds very little water. The Eco-Mat provides water to 100% of the irrigated area and holds 2 liters per square meter of mat. When the Eco-Mat is saturated, it provides a reservoir of water from which the plants can draw.

Key Benefits

Anti-siphon feature and fleece wrap protect against debris and root intrusion
Saves 20–40% more water than standard products due to superior capillary movement of water to the entire root zone, promoting healthier root growth
Non-draining, pressure-compensating emitters open/close simultaneously, maximising efficiency
Check height of 1.5 m minimises system drainage and runoff
