With the weather appearing to become wetter year on year, understanding soil permeability can be the difference between Game On and Game Over. A waterlogged pitch is potentially dangerous to players and proceeding on a particularly wet surface can cause lasting damage which is expensive and time consuming to repair.
We have worked with engineers and sports pitch consultants in connection with schools, colleges, universities and even a couple of professional sports grounds in England and Wales. Using a dual ring infiltrometer, we measure infiltration rates so we can advise on the best course of action to reduce the risk of rain stopping play. We also provide percolation testing and conventional soakaway testing in line with BRE 365.
