What is Subsurface Drainage?

When the origin of your water management problem lies below the surface we have imported the custom-built, top of the range Tile Plow, to counter the issue.

 This seamless process where drainage pipes are installed at specific slopes, grades and depths according to the detailed, customized plan helps you manage water table levels and salinity and optimise the use of rainfall.

Furthermore, this process cuts costs with up to 80% in comparison with conventional methods and saves time as we can install up to 7000m / 28ha  per day.
