Hydraway Drainage Systems has the highest inflow rates on the market with over 70% open space for water intake on all four sides. It also has the highest compressive strengthsat 11,400 PSF, more than doubling other systems on the market.Don’t believe us? Read some of our testimonials below from previous contractors!

Clark Companies has been installing subsurface drainagesystems for many years on both natural and synthetic turffields and has used all types of systems. Two years ago, we started using the Hydraway 2000 Subsurface Drainage System and were immediately impressed by the ease of installation and high compressive strength of the product.These features, coupled with an unsurpassed industry water in-flow rate is why we continue to choose the Hydraway 2000 Subsurface Drainage System over the competition.– Scott Clark, President

When it was decided to rebuild our field, the Hydraway drainage system was a great alternative. It was convenient for retrofitting the field with its high inflow rate and compressive strength during construction. In August 2009, an afternoon thunderstorm arose over the ballpark at 3 pm on game day. By 3:30, the only things visible on the field were the infield and bullpen tarps. At 3:45, the stadium had received 3.17″ of rain. The Zephyrs were on the field, playing by 7:30 with compliments from the Pacific Coast League and its umpires.

The reason we use Hydraway 2000 can be summed up in two in words, strength and permeability. When we use Hydraway 2000 under our fields, we know that we are using a material that has superior compression strength combined with higher permeability and water flow rates than other products we have used in the past.– Charles D. Morris, PE, J.E.M. Morris Construction, INC.

Hydraway Drainage Systems has no “memory” when unrolling, unlike other systems that are often hard to keep flat. Once contractors and designers use Hydraway, they continue using it for future projects.Call us today to find out more!


1. Locate area that tends to gather water and map a
drainage route for water to exit- If covering a larger
area, it is best to arrange an alternating arrow pattern.

2. Contact local utility providers to ensure that no utility lines
or pipes will not be compromised during the Hydraway
installation process (or call 1-800 DIG RITE in Missouri)

3. Map a drainage route, then dig a linear trench along the
path -to allow proper drainage, an alternating arrow
pattern is suggested for large areas. The trench can

be as narrow as 3″ and 9” deep (be sure to save the dug grass
patches in good condition to cover the fill after installation)

4. Place the Hydraway in the center of the trench, stand
upright(make sure there is even spacing on the sides).

5. Cover with a backfill consisting of sand and pea gravel
blend. Be sure to cover all sides but make sure to
leave enough room on the top for some soil and the grass
patch removed (visit the website for more details on the
installation process)
