Golf Course Irrigation

When your turf begins to dry up, so does the investment in your course.

Traditional metal pipes can corrode over time and are vulnerable to extreme weather and ground conditions. Additionally, aging PVC piping can easily crack under pressure.

Enter ISCO’s Kirchdorfer Irrigation System (KIS). With nearly three decades of experience and expertise, KIS uses high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe exclusively for golf course irrigation.

Kirchdorfer Irrigation System

What Is High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE)?

HDPE pipe is joined together via heat fusion to form a solid connection capable of withstanding water hammer issues, freeze expansion and even soil movement. In addition, HDPE pipe is often estimated to last up to 100 years.
