Toro offers Subsurface Drip Systems with Rootguard® for Residential, Commercial and Sports Turf Applications. Subsurface Drip Irrigation (SDI) with Rootguard® is the most technologically advanced subsurface irrigation system available. Through smart Rootguard technology, SDI with Rootguard® delivers optimal water application directly to the root zone while impeding roots from clogging the emitters. Rootguard® is available with DripEze®, Enviro-Drip®PC, and Drip-In&reg. SDI with Rootguard is suited to the irrigation of lawns, shrub areas, median strips, public recreation areas, sports fields, corporate gardens, car parks and vandal prone areas. SDI with Rootguard is also a solution for golf course applications including bunker edges, bunker tongues, tees and greens. How it Works Toro SDI with Rootguard features patented, Rootguard technology, which prevents roots from clogging irrigation emitters. The pre-emergent, TREFLAN®, is impregnated into the emitter during the moulding process and requires no maintenance. There are no filters to change and no chemically treated disks to handle, making it one of the safest subsurface systems on the market. Once SDI with Rootguard is installed in the ground, the slow release of TREFLAN® creates a continuous barrier around the emitter. Roots are directed away from the emitter opening, ensuring optimal water application.
