Sprinkler Irrigation is a method of watering that imitates natural rainfall, only now controlled by the farmer. Water is pumped through a customisable pipe system to distribute over any field. The water is then sprayed into the air and irrigated through the spray nozzles, so that small water droplets fall evenly in the desired area.READ MORE .
Drip irrigation is the process in which water flows through a filter, into specialised pipes, and directly onto the soil. Water is delivered right to the root-zone, by placing slow-release emitters at different intervals inside of the drip pipe. If this process is properly installed and managed, drip irrigation can conserve water by reducing evaporation and deep drainage. This method allows for more control.READ MORE .
Filters can help extend the life of your sprinkler system. It is an essential part of any irrigation system; but vital for drip systems, to prevent the emitters from clogging. Even if small sand particles can pass through your system unobstructed, they will cause equipment to wear down over time, or a build-upof unwanted particles. Automatic valves contain very small water passageways, which can clog up and cause the valves to not open or close anymore.READ MORE .
