Drip it don't drop it


The popularity of Drip Irrigation Systems has been rising in the past years. It is true that this method of irrigation is usually a bit more expensive than sprinklers and isn't as resistant on the long run, but on the other hand the water saving and the system's efficiency definitely make it worth it. So why not giving it a try?

First of all, this system waters plants and flowers more slowly and the water goes straight to the roots, so no water goes to waste.

Moreover, it requires to be activated with less frequency than sprinklers.
In most countries it's one day of irrigation every week during the winter, two days during spring and fall and three during the summer.

Did you get one yet?
If you did here are two basic suggestions to start and keep up a satisfying drip irrigation system.

1. In order to figure out how long to leave it running, you can measure how much water your emitter produces and according to that and your plant's needs, set the system's timer.
So take a spoon and measure how many seconds the system takes to fill it up.
14 seconds = 1 gph (gallon per hour)
7 seconds = 2 gph
4 seconds = 4 gph
If your system is of the first kind, producing 1gph, usually you should leave it running for about 90 minutes, if it's the second (2gph) for about 60 minutes and if the third (4gph) for about 30 minutes.
(If your plants require a higher-flow emitter you can get one that produces up to 20 gph and leave it for about 12 minutes each watering.)

2. In order to keep your drip irrigation system in good shape check its line periodically for breaks, or its emitters for clogs.
Make sure that each emitter releases the right amount of water.
Also you should flush the drip irrigation lines and filters about twice each year. You can do this by uncapping the end cap on the drip line and letting water flush through the line.

Good luck!

I need instructions of Melnor 304F timer for watering


From the Melnor 304f actual instructions:

Use 9V alkaline batter only! Flashing lighs indicate that the battery is low and needs to be replaced.

1) To start: Turn Dial to Off position and press ENTER
2) Set Time: set the current time and press ENTER
3) Start Time: set the time to start the first irrigation cycle and press ENTER.
4) Frequency: Set the frequency of the irrigation cycle e.g. twice a day = 12h and press entere.
5) Duration: Set the duration of the first irrigation cycle and press ENTER.

-- to change the duration
Turn the dial to the new duration and press ENTER

--to turn the water on manually

Turn dial to ON position.. The water will turn off automatically after 30 minutes.
-- to turn the water OFF
Turn the dial to the OFF position

Do NOT press ENTER when dial is in OFF position, otherwise the unit will clear the program, and you have to Reprogram the unit following the steps 2 through 5.

What is a Drip Irrigation System?


According to Wikipedia "Drip irrigation, also known as trickle irrigation or micro irrigation or localized irrigation, is an irrigation method that saves water and fertilizer by allowing water to drip slowly to the roots of plants, either onto the soil surface or directly onto the root zone, through a network of valves, pipes, tubing, and emitters. It is done through narrow tubes that deliver water directly to the base of the plant."

Water will not drain from dishwasher


the selinoid that activates the drain cycle is possibly burnt out. This selinoid is activated by the timer on the dishwasher. Before I changed out the timer I would change this selinoid. It is located right beside the motor. Take the model and serial numbers to a local appliance supply and they should be able to help you. The replacement of this selinoid is simple and self explainitory.., Good luck on your repairs hope this helped you some
