Most courses set up a staging area for the concrete trucks so that they may have little or no interaction with the course at all. Courses and contractors use a variety of methods to get the Capillary Concrete from the truck to the bunker. Some of those items include wheel loaders, dump trucks and other forms of bucket transportation. Many times the concrete truck can pull directly up to the bunker and pour from there.
Yes, you can install Capillary Concrete yourself, with your in-house team, or you can hire a contractor. A Capillary Concrete Installation Specialist will be with your crew to educate them on how to install Capillary Concrete.
This depends on how small/large the square footage of the area of your bunkers; however, typically an 18-hole golf course can be completed within 4-5 weeks with no disruption to your daily play. One single bunker of 1000 ft can usually be installed in less than 1 hour with a crew of 4-6 workers.
The USGA suggests an average 5-7 years lifespan on a bunker without Capillary Concrete. Real-life bunkers in harsh climates suggests a Capillary Concrete bunker will outlast that by decades, making Capillary Concrete the longest lasting bunker liner, by many years, on the market.
The bunker sand should stay slightly moist all the time to avoid a major change in weight and subsequent wash-out when rain starts. With Capillary Concrete, some ground moisture is always being fed up to sand as moisture evaporates from sand, effectively delaying a complete dry-out of sand until ground moisture is depleted. This is the reason the patented Capillary Concrete system avoids wash outs better than any other bunker liner product.
