Consistent moisture for your footing

Premier Ebb & Flow Base System

Ebb & Flow waters the arena ‘from below’ – and you don’t even notice it! Therefore, the horses can stay in the arena around the clock. It also provides high-capacity drainage during rain events.

Eliminate the need for sprinklers and manual arena watering.

The Ebb & Flow system provides consistent hydration of the arena surface by automatically controlling the water level within the arena base and footing layer.

The surface is watered from below where the water wicks up through the sand to keep the surface at an optimum hydration. It is the most efficient and easy method to watering your arena.

What makes up the Ebb & Flow System?

Electronic Controls

An electronic control panel keeps footing consistently supplied with a specified amount of water. It monitors and adjusts the water level by the centimeter.

More water is let in when needed. Excessive water, for example from rainfalls, is automatically let out. There is also an emergency shutdown.

A liner is laid over the native soil. A pipe array is installed over the liner and connected to the water source and control panel.

The liner and pipes are covered with sand and the OTTO-PerforatedMats and/or footing are set on top.
