Har-Tru Clay Tennis Courts
The Har-Tru Clay System has been the system of choice for more than 15 years. In the United States alone, over 1,000 Har-Tru Clay tennis courts have been built – along with many more in many countries around the world.
How the Har-Tru Clay System Works
The Har-Tru Clay System is constructed with six individually controlled cells. Each cell is monitored by a separate water filled control box. Water enters the control box and flows through a pipe to cells lined with a chemical resistant 20 mil thick hyperlastic liner.
As the water level in the control box rises, the water level in the cell also rises. You control the amount of moisture in the court surface by adjusting the water level in the control box. It’s that simple.
No Down Time – Play All Day
Over-watered and under-watered areas are common problems with conventional watering systems. The Har-Tru Clay Tennis Court System provides better coverage on the surface by dispensing water more evenly underneath the court.
Because this process is automatic, there is no loss of playing time for afternoon brushing and watering. The court plays the same during the afternoon as it does in the morning, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of more consistent play.
Reduced Maintenance Costs
With the Har-Tru Clay System, there is no sprinkler system to maintain. The automatic system of Har-Tru clay provides a constant level of moisture which keeps the tennis court surface firm and substantially reduces the amount of brushing and rolling needed.
Water Savings Up To 60%
The above-ground watering systems of conventional courts can waste water through malfunction, run-off, and evaporation during the watering cycle.
The Har-Tru Clay System supplies only the amount of water necessary to keep the surface sufficiently damp. The result is up to a 60% savings in water usage.
