Installing a new Har-tru clay court is quick and cost-efficient. A layer of finely crushed, green rock particles is simply installed over a porous base of crushed stone aggregate to produce a finished surface. The court or courts are irrigated with an overhead pop-up automatic irrigation system. Even after years of play, Har-Tru courts remain free of bumps, pits, buckles and cracks. Every Har-Tru court is backed by a full complement of engineering and design services as well as onsite technical consultation.
HydroCourt is a self-regulating irrigation system that waters the court from below. Each court is constructed with six, fully lined, individually controlled cells. Each cell is monitored by a water control box allowing adjustments to be fine tuned to player preferences. Increasing the water in the control boxes increases the water level in the court. Once the appropriate water level is achieved a float valve and an overflow pipe inside the control box keep the water level constant. It’s that simple!
