Garden Watering FAQs
Q. What time of day should I water?
Q. There is no water coming out of my garden hose.
Q. My pressure sprayer is losing pressure.
A. If no pressure is felt then the sprayer isn't getting pressure in the first place so the most probable cause is a faulty/missing/dry plunger O ring or leaking non return valve. Replace or lubricate as necessary.
Q. There is a leak on my sprayer somewhere but I cannot find out where it is.
Q. What is Automatic Watering?
A. Automatic watering is a system that takes water from the tap to your plants using a simple network of narrow pipes and outlets hidden in the garden. This can be controlled manually or by a water timer. An automatic watering system takes the work out of watering. It waters your plants properly all through the season, even if you are away. If you are looking for a simple system to water your container plants when you are away on holiday or a sophisticated system to water your entire garden, you’ll find that an automatic watering system helps you manage your garden much more easily, allowing you to spend more time doing the things you want, rather than the things you have to. Automatic watering is a simple network of pipes that carry the water around the garden, and outlets that deliver it to the plants. Most systems can be installed in a few hours and all can be extended as your garden grows.
The automatic watering system has been designed to be as easy as possible to understand and install.
Micro irrigation systems are inexpensive and work well for hanging planters. Focusing the water directly on the root, micro-irrigation systems help conserve water consumption while effectively providing nourishment to your plants.
To maintain a beautiful lawn and garden without depleting water supplies and keeping the water bill to a minimum give a great deal of thought to a fully automatic irrigation system. Water will be going to the lawn and garden, not the sewer drain at the end of your driveway.
How To Watering Lawn With Irrigation Sprinkler System Most Efficiently?
Automated irrigation sprinkler systems are very convenient, but they can also be big water wasters. Consider these tips to reduce summer water consumption by up to 50 percent.
• Check the entire sprinkler system thoroughly before activating! Check all exposed pipes, hose bibs and sprinkler heads for damage and repair as necessary. Pressurize the system and observe the main line from the shut-off point near the street to the valve box to ensure there are no leaks. Wait a few hours while the main line is pressurized to allow time for leaks to appear. Then turn on valves one at a time, and observe individual sprinklers. They will often have clogs or need readjustment. After running a valve for a few minutes, walk its length to ensure there are no underground leaks.
• Once the sprinkler system functions properly, perform a water efficiency check. Place several containers (soup cans work well) in a line on a particular valve and run the sprinklers for 10 to 15 minutes. After this period, shut off the sprinklers and measure the amount of water in each container, then, multiply the measurement to determine how many inches per hour are emitted per spot. Average these numbers to see how many inches per hour are emitted per zone. Correct the differences that occur from container to container and from valve to valve.
• Do not irrigate on a daily basis!During the hottest time of the year, lawns require 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 inches of water weekly. Apply this in greater amounts less often to condition the lawn to become more drought tolerant and less attractive to common lawn pest. Try spacing irrigation at least two to three days apart and apply at least 1/2 inch of water each time.
• Consider not using the water timer. Using a water timer indiscriminately is akin to forcing ourselves to drink a large amount of water every two hours, whether we need it or not. We drink water on an as-needed basis. Irrigate the lawn in the same fashion. Several signs will determine when to water the lawn: visible footprints when the lawn is walked on, brown patches that appear and a screwdriver that cannot be easily inserted into the soil in multiple areas. Another reason not to use a timer is that different areas of the yard require different amounts of water. Areas in full sun require more frequent irrigation than shaded areas.
