What is the central pore space
For soil scientists, the central pore space is the area of the soil which is also responsible for water storage. The central pore space is the area that attracts the water and can hold it there against the force of gravity. This is the area where the roots get their water.
The special thing about OsmoDrain is that water is brought into the central pore space, i.e. the soil itself absorbs only as much water as it can store there. There is no loss of water, for example through simple drainage where the water flows and seeps downwards through coarse pores and is ineffective for the plants.
Why German companies should save water
Although Germany is not affected by water scarcity, 90 percent of the top-selling German companies report that they are affected by water risks. The collateral damage includes the over-fertilization of fields and the associated pollution of groundwater that comes with it. It's time to act, for our ecosystems, for us humans and also in favor of the long-term competitiveness of companies.

According to the latest reports from the WWF World Nature Foundation, the destruction of water resources is the "global environmental catastrophe". Worldwide we are wasting and consuming more and more water – mainly through the production of our consumer goods. This has serious consequences which, through the production chains of companies, also affect us humans. These companies must take more responsibility for their actions and find sustainable solutions for local water problems. 
Barely three percent of the planet's water is fresh water. Although that is sufficient in theory for everyone, the water is extremely unequally distributed. And so, in more and more regions, the question arises of how the precious resource water can be used more efficiently. The world's population is racing toward a crisis that still could be halted at the present stage with good will, foresight and efficient technologies of water and soil management..

What is an OsmoDrain membrane hose
The basis for carrying out all functions of OsmoDrain ECO Technology© is a special hose, the so-called OsmoDrain membrane hose, which requires neither pressurized water nor electricity for the capillary irrigation processes. In accordance with the respective use requirement, the technical characteristics, length and nature of the hose are determined individually and specifically taken into account in the production. Tiny pores in the membrane hose permit nutrients such as water, air or liquid fertilizer to evenly reach the central pore space of the soil. Suction processes, such as the extraction of rainwater or harmful methane gases from the soil, are also handled by the hose system using the OsmoDrain ECO technology©.

Installation depth 10-100 cm, supply pressure max: 3.0 bar, supply pressure min: 0.1 bar, max working pressure: 1.5 bar, working pressure opt: 0.6 bar, water discharge at 0.6 bar: 4-8 l/m/hr.

Composition: The hose does not contain PVC or plasticizers. Composition AGR granulate from used tires (40% rubber) and LDPE polyethylene.

Attestation of health safety by SGS INSTITUT FRESENIUS: The SGS Group is the global leader in the fields of checking, testing, verification, and certification. SGS Institut Fresenius Geneva 2009. As one of the leading providers of chemical laboratory analysis in Germany, SGS INSTITUT FRESENIUS has an excellent reputation with producers, consumers, and trade, especially for the safety and quality of food, beverages, and consumer products. 
What is sustainable soil management
The soil plays only a minor role in the consciousness of many people. It is, however, in terms of environmental protection and safeguarding the future of humanity, of utmost importance. The soil is essential and necessary for the maintenance of the material cycle in all terrestrial ecosystems, and thus represents an important prerequisite for the preservation of the complete life-cycle of terrestrial ecosystems. Only through sustainable and integrated soil management can it be ensured that in the future the claims on utilization by man can be fulfilled. Through different use of the land for different purposes, a major hazard potential arises for the soil and its resources, for example, sealing, erosion, or the effects of agricultural processing activities, overfertilization, use of pesticides, pollutant inputs.

The concept of sustainability is use-oriented. Of the three vital resources water, soil and air, the soil has been considered the least in the past, although it is the most complex in its structure and just as vulnerable in today's environment as water and air. The efficiency strategy is based on ecological optimization of products, production processes and services. Through efficiency improvements, negative environmental impact is to be minimized and the limited carrying capacity taken into account.
What is the basis for healthy growth
For healthy growth, plants require mineral nutrients, light, air, water, and heat in addition to the proper soil quality. This is the agricultural science basis and a factor for plant nutrition, growth, resilience, quality, yield and efficiency.. 
The following processes belong to the correct soil conditions: correct processing of the soil surfaces, adequate supply of the soil with organic matter, appropriate supply of nutrients, limitation of pollution, maintenance of the proper pH, prevention of erosion. 
No risk of damage
Underground rodents
No occurrence of damage caused by underground rodents from many years of experience. 

Clogging through contaminated water
When using contaminated water, we recommend the use of a filter (130 mesh).

Through the regular discharge of water, the ingrowth of roots in the special hose is not possible.

Manual or automatic shut-off of the water supply or water discharge when frost occurs, depending on the installation depth.

Blockage by liquid fertilizer
When using contaminated water, we recommend the use of a filter (130 mesh).

The risk of calcification is eliminated. In case of extreme water hardness, technical processes are used for water softening.

Mechanical influence
Damage caused by mechanical action is possible depending on the installation depth, e.g. by ramming iron needles or pegs into the ground.
How long does the installation in a grass soccer field take
The installation of OsmoDrain membrane hoses in underground technique with OsmoDrain ECO technology© takes 5 to 8 working days on a soccer field with about 7,500 m², and thereupon can be played on again after 1 week. 
Function with any type of soil possible
The type of soil is another important factor. Before using the OsmoDrain system, soil samples may be taken and analyzed by the TU Technical University of Munich. Basically, most soil types give good results. Only strongly loamy soils are less suitable, substrate components must be added for improved water permeability.
