Econoplas sees snowmelt concerns spark surge in drainage system enquiries

Econoplas' drainage system Aquadyne has seen an 18% boost in enquiries thanks to the January snowstorms, which have caused major concerns for turf managers.

Groundsmen, local authorities and growers have been contacting the company with concerns that the melting snow will lead to severe waterlogging.

Aquadyne sales and marketing managing director James Arrowsmith said: "We have been rushed off our feet with enquiries. The huge benefits of Aquadyne are already being enjoyed across the UK."

Aquadyne features 100% non-toxic recycled plastic blocks of macro and micro porus cells that drain surface water 10 times faster than coarse sand and without clogging.
