On green roofs, water must flow freely toward drains. To prevent water from pooling on the rooftop, irrigation pipe used to water plants on a roof should not be laid directly on the membrane. Instead, it must be elevated to allow water to drain beneath the pipe. It is now very simple to elevate the pipes between green roof modules with the new LiveRoof PipeRunner! The part is 3 inches wide and 24 inches long. Lay between lines of modules, lay irrigation lines (up to 1.25 inch diameter), and then fill in gap with engineered green roof soil. PipeRunner may be purchased from your local LiveRoof licensed grower in spring 2017. http://www.liveroof.com/representatives/ Video Rating: / 5 Related PostsGreen Revolution Series: Green RoofsGreen Roofs: How to install an instant Sedum Roof SIG Liveroof Lite – 2 minute EditGreen Roofs: How to install an instant Sedum Roof SIG LiveRoof Lite – Full LengthGreen Roofs: Largest Extensive in New Zealand Uses LiveRoof SystemAdvanced Green Roof™: subsurface green roof irrigationThe Impact LiveRoof Vegetated Roofs Have on Senior Living Residents
