Garden irrigation installation process
Because water evaporation and waste is a regular sprinkler system disadvantage, the drip irrigation system is a good choice. It delivers the water directly to the roots of the plants and thus doesn’t waste water. It is basically a hose with holes in it that is placed on the ground or under it.rclma
First of all you must connect back flow preventer to a main water source like an exterior faucet. This device will prevent water from flowing back into the main water pipe. Next up, connect a water timer to the back flow device to allow you to time the irrigation system as needed. Connect a pressure regulator to the water timer. This will allow you to regulate the pressure as you need. After that, connect a filter to the pressure regulator. it will help clean the water that is passing through. Connect a tubing adapter to the filter. This device is required for drip tubing. It must be connected to a larger faucet connector. When placing the irrigation tube on the ground, make sure the soil is flat and the tube is further from sandy soil and clay soil. The medium distance between the tube and these soil types is 18 inches. Use U-shaped landscaping staples to anchor the tubing into the ground. Make sure there are at least 18 inches between the drip emitters in the tube.
