Tireless gardeners are trying to get the most out of a small garden. In a happy host, greenhouses, hotbeds, beds are placed on a compact plot. Many factors affect their productivity. And the right watering in the country - the most important.
Modern irrigation technologies greatly facilitate the care of plants, allow you to choose the optimal irrigation system for specific conditions.
Automated irrigation is a great opportunity to get rid of the obligation to manually water the plants. Moreover, you can choose how to organize watering and independently mount the system.
The organization of watering in the country is simple: polyethylene pipes with holes are buried in the ground to a depth of 20-30 cm (which is determined by the type of plant root system). The layout of the pipes is carried out according to the placement of the beds.
Advantages: low cost of components, the water goes directly to the roots of plants, the soil remains loose. Disadvantages: careful filtration of water is necessary, since it is very difficult to eliminate system clogs.
Invisible design work at any time brings excellent results. A pleasant opportunity for the summer resident to do his own business and not to adhere strictly to the rules of watering - before sunrise or after sunset.
Uninterrupted operation of systems is highly dependent on the quality of components. Reliable functioning of irrigation is determined by the accuracy of the assembly and proper installation of the structure. Therefore, you should not hurry when arranging irrigation in the country of plastic pipes. It is better to spend more time on the installation and enjoy comfortable irrigation throughout the season than quickly install the device and then constantly adjust the irrigation process.
Arrange sprinkler design will help to organize automatic watering in the country. For its installation it is necessary to carry out serious preparatory work.
Standard set of automatic irrigation system: pumping station, pressure regulator (installed in case of mounting different sprinklers), cleaning filters, solenoid valves (to enable alternate irrigation of sections), HDPE pipes, sprinklers, controllers, fittings.
A site plan is drawn up with the allocation of irrigation zones (lawn, flower beds) and dry (resting places, buildings).
The number of sprinklers and their installation places are determined. To do this, the water consumption, working pressure and irrigation areas of individual devices are taken into account. Connecting simultaneously working sprinklers to one solenoid valve optimizes irrigation.
On the lawn are marked lines laying the trunk line and branches. It is important that the pipes rarely bend over and lead to the sprinklers in short ways. Trunk pipes are selected with a larger diameter than the branches.
This is an ideal way of watering in greenhouses and in the open field. The main feature of the method is the possibility of irrigation equipment at any sites (with or without central water supply).
In the first installation, some controversial situations may arise, but over time, the installation processes will work out exactly. How many sites, so many nuances. But the observance of some general rules will help all summer residents to equip themselves with convenient watering in the country:
- pre-plan the site with beds, greenhouses, flower beds and draw the location of pipes and hoses on it;
- decide the type of soil (sandy soil dries faster than clay), the type of plantings and the required volume of water;
- if there is no water supply for irrigation in the country, you need to think about the installation location of the water tank (at a height of at least 1.5-2 meters). It is important to exclude the possibility of illuminating the tank in direct sunlight (to prevent the flowering of liquid). Owners of large plots should think about the possibility of arranging your own well.
