What is Field Drainage Testing?
Field Drainage Testing measures the permeability rate of the synthetic turf playing field system. The test is performed in accordance to ASTM standards and the results are compared to the Synthetic Turf Council performance guidelines for the type of field and/or stone base system being tested.
Why Should You Perform This Test?
Field Drainage Testing should be conducted when the time approaches for the synthetic turf to be replaced. This test provides critical data used to determine how the system is draining and whether remediation is required before new synthetic turf is installed. Field Drainage Testing prior to a field replacement can help identify areas of inadequate storm water drainage. This can help avoid costly change orders and delays during construction.
