Drip irrigation system

Drip irrigation is one of the most effective methods of watering plants just the right amount they need. If you install such a system, you will rarely need to worry about irrigation.

System design

First of all you need to measure the area and find out the quantity of pounds per square inch (PSI) though the water supply company.

Note down the lowest pressure you are given and so you can choose the right equipment to handle the system.


You will need the system components: valve, back flow preventer, pressure regulator, filter, tubing adapter, drip tubing, emitters and end cap. The valve is used to turn the installation on and off, the back flow keeps impurities out of the system, the pressure regulator maintains a steady pressure and prevents leaks and bursts. The filter keeps chemicals from the house water away from the plants the irrigation system waters. The emitters are the components that deliver the water to the plant roots. The drip tube is sort of a hose of different sizes that transports the water. It must suit the PSI regulations in order to function properly.

Installation process

Dig a trench in the area the irrigation system will be. It has to be 4-6 inches deep.  Inform yourself on underground piping systems to avoid hitting any of them. Use a spade in order to give the trench a proper shape.
