Flood Floor & Cascade Floor Systems

Our innovative technology provides a quick responding irrigation cycle time which is critical to greater control of nutrient uptake, timing, and prevents oversoaking. Our Flood Floor and Cascade Floor systems save water, energy, fertilizer and reduce labor costs by up to 95%.

Flood Floor

  • Cross Section: “V” or “W” pattern.
  • Flow Pattern: common fill and drain pipe located along floor valleys.
  • Watering Cycle: floor fills, floor drains then water is available for use in next zone.
  • Cycle Time: 6-10 minutes (minimum).
  • Material: precision installed structural concrete.
  • Containment: flexible rubber barrier surrounding floor perimeter which allows for ample employee and cart access.

Cascade Floor

  • Cross Section: unidirectional slope.
  • Flow Pattern: independent fill pipe flowing to common drain pipe located at valley between two floors.
  • Watering Cycle: floor fills and drains simultaneously which makes water immediately available for same cycle use.
  • Cycle Time: only what you need (5-6 minutes typical).
  • Material: precision installed structural concrete.
  • Containment: flexible rubber barrier surrounding floor perimeter which allows for ample employee and cart access.
