Headless Athletic Field Irrigation System
Architerra specified the first, successful headless irrigation system in Pennsylvania at the Manheim Township School District in 2001. This system deviated from conventional spray systems, which experience a substantial loss of water efficiency to wind and evapotranspiration.
Our headless water system targeted root growth right at its source. Porous pipes were buried nine inches below grade for the entire field, enabling water to push through the root zone, rather than resting on top of the soil. This zero-water-loss approach stimulates greater root growth and overall field durability. It also enabled the application of nutrients directly to the roots for greater efficiency.
