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?
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.
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?
@Brian we have just finished installing a cheap irrigation system on our property for 32 fruit tree's and 2 taps in 2 of our 4 paddocks, very cheaply done and works a treat, we run it 2 wats manually and or a timer, if you need a hand with parts etc let me know
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.
