Watering system

Re: Watering system

Yep, me, Jason. Keen to install a water irrigation system, but not sure what to do with the water flow test information? Presumably it dictates how many sprinklers and drippers I can have on a certain length of 19 cm polypipe. Do you know how this calculation works?

Thanks

Re: Watering system

That's great @GardenerJohn. I see you have also started a new discussion on this topic. I'm sure that Workshop community members will be happy to assist once you have done your water flow test. You might also like to share a sketch of your garden area. Please let me know if you have any trouble uploading a photo or getting the most from the Workshop site.

Re: Watering system

How is your garden surviving in the hot weather?

 

Remember that when it comes to watering in February, do it first thing in the morning if you can. And a deep drink for your plants twice a week is better than more regular, shorter watering.

Re: Watering system

Hi Jason and other members...

I am just about to lay 100m of lawn, and want to retic it from a 40,000 litre water tank. The dimensions are 7m x 14m, and I have read heaps of articles on testing water flow, and how that dictates the number of sprinklers you can tun at one time, BUT I have not found a chart or table that shows the number of sprinklers related to the flow rate. IE if the flow rate is XX litres per minute (or hour) then you can run Y sprinklers.

Looking at pop ups not the driven ones. Could anyone point me in the right direction please for this info?

Thanks:)

Hi @buccarasta,

 

Just checking in to see how you are going with your watering system. Do you need a hand with anything? We are looking forward to seeing how your project progresses.
