Sherriff Amenity launches new bunker filtration system

Sherriff Amenity has announced the launch of Bunkerfilter - a new robust bunker filtration system which offers drainage at a flow rate of up to 14.5l per minute.

The company expects the new product to come as welcome news to greenkeepers and course managers who face constant battles with problematic bunkers.

Heavy rain not only washes bunker sand into drains but it also carries silt and over time this leads to drainage deterioration. A recent survey revealed that an average of 10kg of silt was deposited per tonne of bunker sand over nine years and this silt combines with sand and water to form a hard compact layer. It can often be very time consuming and expensive to rectify the issue.

Sheriff Amenity says its unique filter system will minimise these costly effects. The system is easily installed by greens staff and is low-maintenance, and its location well below the bunker's surface means it doesn't interfere with play.

Bunkerfilter is designed to retrofit with existing drainage and perfectly fits a modern 100mm plastic drain hose. It uses low-cost ceramic parts for robust performance and has longer term benefits by providing a system which requires less drainage maintenance. The company says it also improves bunker playability by significantly reducing the incidence of flooded bunkers caused by heavy rain.
