General Acrylics constructed the first HydroGrid® Clay courts in Arizona in 1987.
The HydroGrid® system was specifically designed and patented for fast-drying tennis courts by irrigation specialists. It brings watering precision to the playing surface and maximizes the playing pleasure of fast-dry courts. This is accomplished by providing a controlled homogeneous moisture level of the base material through the entire court. Every HydroGrid® is installed using a FULL six inches of base material, tested by an independent testing laboratory which allows the appropriate amount of water from the base material to the clay surface through capillary action without the need for pressurized lines beneath the tennis court surface.
Since the first HydroGrid® installation in 1991, nearly 2,000 HydroGrid® tennis courts exist around the World. No other patented subsurface irrigation system can make this claim!
Courts are never shut down for routine watering. Courts are watered from below and can stay in play during watering.
Efficiency in the system design cuts water usage in half! Water savings begin on day one and over the life of the court can be phenomenal.
Less surface erosion requires less replacement of surface material, cutting maintenance time and maintenance costs in half.
HydroGrid® courts pay for themselves in 2.5 to 3 years and keep saving you money for years after.
An off court control box is simple to use, allowing watering times and amounts to be adjusted for day or night automatic watering.
The playing surface can be twenty percent cooler (or more) compared to hard courts. Playing on a cooler court in hotter climates greatly adds to the comfort of the players.
HydroGrids® can easily be wetter or dryer as desired by minimal dial adjustments. A wetter court encourages a slower ball speed and longer rallies. A dryer court encourages faster play.
