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.
Too often we let our irrigation systems go on without really making sure that the amount of water, the pressure, the radius and other settings are what our lawn or landscape needs. This causes not only a great waste of water and money but it may also ruin our flowers and plants. Therefore here are a few tips to transform a wasteful sprinkler irrigation into the effective system it should be, and to keep a healthy landscape, lawn or garden.
1. When to water. Watering your lawn and landscape should be differentiated according to seasons. During warm months (May to October) irrigation should be activated between midnight and sunrise, so to minimize the water that evaporates. While during winter, plants and lawns should be watered during the warmer part of the day to prevent water from freezing on the landscape.
2. Don't drown your plants. Keep an eye on your lawn while the sprinklers are on and monitor when the water starts dripping off the sides. This way you will know how long your sprinklers should be left active for, so that the plants may absorb the water without being overwhelmed.
3. Avoid daily, light watering.
4. When watering plants with deep roots, water well and deep, until about half inch deeper than the deepest roots, in order to encourage downward growth.
5. When watering on a slope do it gradually. Run your sprinklers every 3 hours circa and aerate to increase infiltration.
6. Check your sprinkler's efficiency once a month. Check for damaged, leaking, clogged or stuck sprinkler heads and for constantly soaked patches of grass or soil to detect leakage. Make sure that the water is sprayed all over the area and that new additions or plants that grew higher and larger don't block the spray pattern.
7. In seasons in which the temperature reaches 30/32 degrees Celsius remember to run your sprinklers 5 to 10 minutes in the afternoon to cool the area. It reduces the symptoms of summer patch disease.
8. Create water zones by putting together the plants that have similar water needs, and water them accordingly
9. Be careful when mowing. If your sprinkle heads don't retract underground after irrigation, apply small flags on them so that while mowing you see them better and avoid damaging them.
Generally you put these timers at the hose bib (faucet). In my home, they'd be used for sprinklers or drip irrigation systems that have a limited controls on them. If I put them past the flow restrictor on the soaker hose, the unit would be on the ground and in the water.
