Keeping the Tennis Court Maintenance free of organic debris is crucial to the longevity of your ClayTech surface. Leaves, pine needles, grass clippings and insects can stain the surface if left unattended. A good sweeping or brooming is the best way to get rid of these items and can be done as often as once a week. A pressure wash is also a good idea on a regular basis to keep your court looking fresh.
It is very important to have a proper drainage system in place that diverts water away from the court. If this is not the case, standing water may occur which softens and damages the coatings. These puddles should be swept off the court as soon as possible to prevent premature wearing of the color coating. The area drains should also be inspected and kept clear of debris to avoid clogs.
Selecting the Best Paint for Your Tennis Court
Cracking in the surface of your court is usually due to settlement or heaving within the subbase. This can be corrected with surface treatment or resurfacing the entire slab depending on the severity of the problem.
Check the float valve canisters to ensure that they are filled with the optimum amount of water. A float with less water will not be able to supply the stone base with an adequate amount of moisture during a watering cycle and this can lead to early wear of the surface coatings. If the float is not supplying an even amount of water to each canister, the float stem and/or base should be removed and checked for blockages or damage.
