Controlling the water, carbon dioxide and oxygen levels for various soil profiles is a major challenge – especially for faster, firmer greens susceptible to dry spots. The Capillary Hydroponics System is a totally new approach that gives you great playability with significantly less risk and maintenance.
This patented system automatically regulates the water levels and increases gas-exchange by raising and lowering the water table to produce deeper, healthier roots and higher-quality turfgrass. This system also allows easy monitoring of EC Levels, PH Levels, Temperature, and Water Flow.

Up to 6,000% greater gas-exchange in rootzone
Up to 30% lower annual irrigation costs
Up to 85% less water use
Longer lifespan of tees and greens
How Our Hydroponic System Works
The Capillary Hydroponics System divides the turf area into two equally large areas. A control basin automatically oxygenates and pumps or drains water between the two areas on a regular schedule. The system is powered by a small solar panel, and the water levels in the turf profile can easily be adjusted.
Turf area divided in two sections by the pond-liner that encloses the system. This promotes drainage, control over pH levels, EC levels, temperature, water flow, and prevents pesticide leaching.
Capillary Concrete installed on top of pond liner to provide a level and stable base that will help draw moisture up to the roots as well as drain water down.
The control basin contains an intricate system of air-lift pumps that both oxygenates the water & soil, transports the water between the sections on a timed schedule, and can even fertilize the turf from below!
All water is filtered through an active bio-filter that contains beneficial microbes and bacteria to reduce algae growth.
