Turf-Tec Infiltrometer Easy to use Double Ring Infiltrometer
Turf-Tec finally has answered the age old question, "How do I determine Infiltration rate?" The Turf-Tec Infiltrometer is simple to operate and easy to use! Determine infiltration rate in as little as fifteen minutes.
Now, for the first time, a field instrument to measure the rate of water infiltration on all areas. This instrument determines the downward flow of water through the turf and soil.
Elapsed time indicator makes it possible to correlate irrigation time to the infiltration rate of your turf. Record keeping of Infiltrometer readings can aid in keeping track of significant changes in water percolation.
Has double ring accuracy. The Infiltrometer has been used by 100's of Colleges, Universities and Government agency's. Trusted and reliable and made to last.
Turf-Tec offers many different ways of performing infiltration tests.
Another first from Turf-Tec International
Now utilized by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) for measuring urban runoff and some states DEP (Department of Environmental Protection) for storm water soil evaluations. Note some states might require 6 and 12 inch rings or 12 and 24 inch Infiltration rings (ASTM 3385) as regulations change from state to state - If larger rings are required, the Turf-Tec Infiltrometer is still very useful in "qualifying" the site that all soils are alike (confirmatory testing) and have consistent infiltration rates, allowing fewer large infiltration tests to be performed on larger test sites. See Below.

New! The EPA has also used the Turf-Tec Infiltrometer to replicate ASTM Specifications in tests for urban runoff. New! Report # 600r00016 - Website: http://www.epa.gov/ednnrmrl/ Link to File: Infiltration Through Disturbed Urban Soils and Compost-Amended Soil Effects on Runoff Quality and Quantity See section 2-7
New! The Pennsylvania DEP (Department of Environmental Protection) has also used the Turf-Tec Infiltrometer to be used as possible support for confirmatory testing for stormwater and soil evaluation and for Infiltration BMP's Design Guidelines however they prefer the IN8-W Infiltration rings. New! Website: http://www.depweb.state.pa.us/watershedmgmt/site/default.asp Link to File: Infiltration BMP Design Guidelines See Page 90 - 93
