How it works


The right moisture level for any sand

With subsurface irrigation you can set the moisture level of choice for your intended usage and have sand footing that performs as it should.


Increase the longevity of your sand by washing it

The Capillary Wash Box lets you wash your footing sand without removing or replacing it, making our arenas easy to clean and cost efficient.


A drainage layer that works

The Capillary Material is dense and robust enough to avoid migration of sand into the drainage layer and pipes, increasing the lifespan of it and maintaining its performance over time.


Proprietary material for regulating moisture and draining effectively

The patented Capillary Material facilitates the process of moving water, regulating the moisture consistency of the sand whereas it also offers superior drainage capacity to avoid sitting water in the arena.


A liner to keep things in place

The impermeable liner helps to maintain the efficiency of the system and helps to regulate the moisture entering it from the soil.

Christer Egerström

By far the biggest advantage of riding on the Capillary Flow arena now is that I never have to worry about the surface not being even or too wet. I can be confident that my horses are always getting the best conditions to perform at their best and that they will last.

Dr Ricardo Gutierez

The horses under my care that have been ridden during this past year on the CapillaryFlow system footing has been a very positive one. The consistency (no dry spots or wet spots) of the footing throughout the day has greatly reduced the necessity of intervention on my part on the horses articulations. In general I have found the Capillary system to be of great benefit in keeping the horses healthy and supple during their training routines.
