What is a Hydro Court?
Hydro Courts as we know them today is a result of a simple, yet ingenious, idea of building a tennis court on top of a controlled water reservoir. Cell liners are placed in approximate 20 foot widths and then filled with 5.5″ of screenings. After the screenings have been installed and laser leveled a Hydro Blend surfacing is installed over the cells. The water level in these cells is maintained by a floatvalve installed inside a control box sitting outside the court area. Since the water is perfectly level under each cell area, evaporation and capillary action provide water to the top surface evenly. The only adjustment is the water level, and once set, it is maintained automatically. An overflow tube controls any water buildup due to rain, making the system simple and reliable.
