How the Arion Ebb & Flow Arena Works

Arion Ebb & Flow is the most efficient water-saving equestrian arena base system available. Drastically lowering water usage, Arion conserves up to 75% of water compared with overhead watering systems.

Water Storage

Water is stored within a sand layer (water storage layer) underneath the footing. A waterproof pan liner keeps it all contained.

Water flows through a pipe array into the water storage layer. The process of evaporation wicks water up to the surface keeping the footing perfectly hydrated at all times.

Automated Controls

Water level is monitored through a sensor that connects to a programable controller. The controller operates a fill valve to bring water in as well as pumps to move water out after rainfall. Arion can connect to the internet for remote diagnostics, service fault alerts, and software updates.

Benefits of the Arion Control Cabinet:

  • Made in the USA
  • Parts and supplies are readily available
  • Uses 110v, eliminating electrical shortages and incompatible European circuits with US wiring
  • Contains 2 levels of surge protection
  • Wifi enabled – login from any location to diagnose, drain or fill system

Water Flows In

As moisture evaporates from the footing, water stored under the footing wicks up through the surface.

Arion will add more water as needed, via the pipe array, to keep the footing at the perfect moisture level from sunup to sundown without interruption.

Water Drains Out

Pumps can evacuate excess water quickly during heavy rainfall. Arion can drain water at up to 18,000 gallons or 4 inches per hour.

Arion Ebb & Flow Customers

The covered arena footing has consistent and automated moisture throughout the day. There's no waiting for sprinklers to turn off, just perfect footing all the time!
