Subsurface Drainage

DOES THE ORIGIN OF YOUR WATER MANAGEMENT PROBLEM LIE

BELOW THE SURFACE?

This seamless process where drainage pipes are inserted at specific gradients or slopes according to the detailed, customized plan helps you manage water table levels and salinity as well as optimize the use of rainfall. Furthermore, this process cuts costs by up to 80% in comparison with conventional methods and saves time as we can install up to 7000m per day. 

WHY US SUBSURFACE DRAINAGE

EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE

We have extensive experience in water management which has enabled us to avoid common mistakes. As the leading water management specialists in South Africa, we have installed over 1 million metres of drainage pipes. 

LATEST TECHNOLOGY

We only use the latest in drainage technology includ­ing Aerial Lidar Surveys and the Trimble RTK GPS con­trol system which works at an accuracy of less than 2cm. By means of our state of the art 3D software, we ensure optimum pipe spacing and placement as well as the depth and sizing of collector mains. This hel1Ps us determine correct grades and flow velocities for each soil type to ensure cost-effective drainage and a self-cleaning system that will last for generations. 

II HOLISTIC APPROACH

We apply a holistic approach by determining a variety of specialised processes and systems, each designed to achieve optimal outcome and purpose driven solution for customized plans. 

NEWEST DESIGN

Our state of the art equipment includes the newest design of ‘Tile Plows’ 

ADVANTAGES OF SUBSURFACE DRAINAGE

Reclaim Lost Land

Reclaiming the land that you have lost due to water logging and salination to get the most out of your farm. 

Drought Resistance

Deeper root development enables plants to better withstand summer droughts. 

Lower Salination

Certain toxic substances and disease organisms are removed from the soil due to better drainage and aeration.

Deeper Root System

Drainage creates air and water channels to encourage better root growth and soil penetration.

Consistently Higher Yields

Subsurface drainage will improve your yield by up to 40%  and improve your crop quality.

Timely Field Operations

By using tile plows with the latest in GPS plow control technology, we ensure a fast and accurate installation.
