Sub-surface irrigation has several key attributes to save water:

Reduced Water Usage:
There is no evaporation, run-off, overspray, or wind-drift with sub-surface drip irrigation systems.

A sub-surface drip irrigation system, married to a central control management system (see TIMPACK™) will deliver to the plant, only the moisture which the plant requires – based on evapotranspiration data.

Sub-surface drip irrigation systems are totally buried with no components on the surface which could be vulnerable to vandalism or general damage. Correspondingly, damage to pop-up sprinklers by vandals has proven to be extremely expensive both in monetary and water loss terms.

Grounds-user Safety:
Once again, because sub-surface drip irrigation systems are buried, grounds-users can-not sustain injuries which could form the basis of costly litigation

Re-use of treated effluent/wastewater:
Sub-surface drip irrigation is ideal for the dispersal of treated effluent/wastewater as it is totally hazard-free.

Weed growth:
Because sub-surface drip delivers moisture below the surface, germination of weeds is kept to a minimum.

Fungal infections and diseases:
Sub-surface drip delivers moisture to the root zone therefore the soil surface is dry.

Watering Time Availability:
Irrigation scheduling is not restricted to night-time hours with sub-surface drip. Watering can be occurring whilst the grounds are in use.

Low Water Pressure:
On sites where pressure is a problem, sub-surface drip irrigation can be the answer. This negates the necessity for costly tanks and pumps.

99% distribution uniformity:
The distribution uniformity of sub-surface drip irrigation is 99.5%, compared to a low 60% for sprinkler systems. This is defined as a ratio of the smallest accumulated depths in the distribution to the average depths of the whole distribution. See the table below for a DU comparison.
