Many (young) trees, shrubs and hedges in urban environments are plagued by drought. This is usually caused by a disturbed soil structure and/or the fact that rainwater hardly penetrates the soil. This drought causes young trees to root poorly or to come under stress, resulting in reduced vitality that makes them susceptible to disease, plagues and dying back.
The AquaMax irrigation system is a highly effective and easy to install system for the convenient irrigation of trees in public spaces. AquaMax can be applied both for trees in planting sections and for trees planted in paving. All AquaMax irrigation hoses and tubes are made from PP and are standard provided with a polyester filtering cloth (woven sleeve) that allows an even infiltration of water.
This extra perforation now makes it possible to use polyester filtering cloth with a very long life, that far exceeds the 5- to 10- year lifespan of coconut fibre.
AquaMax irrigation is available in various sets and diameters to suit your particular irrigation requirements. AquaMax has extra slits and therefore produces better aeration.
AquaMax BIO is a compostable irrigation system produced from corn and the bio synthetic granulate Cradonyl®.
The AquaMax Bio system consists of:
- Irrigation hose
- End cover with screwlid or clic-fit cover
All parts are biodegradable and will start breaking down within 3 to 5 years. It is therefore a much more durable solution than the standard plastic systems. Underground aeration and watering desperately needs the tree for the first few years after planting, after which the system is superfluous and the plastics remain useless in the ground.
Advantages AquaMax Bio System:
- Natural resources
- Sustainable and environmentally friendly
- 40% Reduction of CO2 gasses during the production process
- In the right circumstances the system is completely compostable
AquaMax Bio meets all the requirements of biodegradability (biodegradable) according to the standards EN13432, ASTM D6400, Vincotte OK Compost.
