The active BlueLite-Net irrigation system has been developed for a water-saving and cost-effective subsurface irrigation of sports fields, green roofs, city trees, slopes and lawns. BlueLite-Net consists of an irrigation pipe * 1 with a non-woven covering *2 placed along it which feeds the water into a nonwoven distribution net (Lite-Net) *3 which spreads water extensively and consistently at the root level (fig. 1). The voluminous non-woven net consists up to 90% of interconnected voids where water can be saved and transmitted perfectly.
The non-woven covering protects the holes of the tube against root penetration and plugging through soil fines. Furthermore, the non-woven covering multiplies the water/soil contact surface area by a thousand!
The active subsurface irrigation system blocks evaporation, felting or surface waterlogging. Irrigation is possible at any time and non-stop, even when the area is in use. Due to the open and flexible structure of the net no barriers exist, so plant roots may grow through the net or anchor themselves around it. Therefore 100% of the water retained in the non-woven net (according to the version up to 10l/ m²) is disposable for the plants. BlueLite-Net can be installed in the soil at any required depth – perfectly adjusted to the relevant plants and either in undulating or multilayer design.
The roots can be supplied with water and air even during the initial phase or with a plant mix.
- Extensive distribution of water without evaporation
- Simple installation at any soil depth
- Cost-effective and long-lasting
- Retains water without restricting roots
- Reduced water consumption up to 70%
- Tube protection
