KISSS stands for Kapillary Irrigation Sub-Surface System. Invented by ex TAFE horticulture teacher Dave Hinton and now sold in many countries through Irrigation and Water Technologies (based in Annangrove, NSW) this system can save up to 70% of the water required by above ground systems. It works on an ingenious method of using the capillary action of soil to wick the water to the root zone of plants. Ploughed into the ground below the root level the remarkable diaphragm drips out water at the required rate and the water spreads through a geotextile material giving an even irrigation across fields, planting lines, etc.
SCRAP has worked to bring the system into schools such as Kincumber PS on the Central Coast where it was used for the first time ever, to irrigate their field with recycled sewerage water, Tharawal PS in Sutherland and Leumeah PS in Campbelltown where rainwater tanks supply the system.
