Everything You Need To Know About Irrigation Systems

What is an Irrigation System?

An irrigation system is a vital part of any farm, agricultural operation and garden oasis. It is used to provide water to crops, grass and plants in order to help them grow. There are many different types of irrigation systems, but they all have one common goal: to provide water in an efficient and effective way.

How do Irrigation Systems Work?

An irrigation system features a network of pipelines, irrigation pumps and speciality fittings. The system includes a water source, and a series of pipes that transport the water to the garden. The pipes are typically made of plastic or rubber, and they are buried underground to prevent evaporation. The pumps in an irrigation system are used to move water from the source to the required area. The type of pump used depends on the distance the water needs to travel and the amount of water that needs to be pumped.

How often should an irrigation system run?

If you live in an area that gets a considerable amount of rainfall, you probably won't need to run your irrigation system very often. But if you live in a dryer climate, you'll need to run it more often to keep your plants and grass healthy. Ideally, you should check your irrigation system every few weeks to see how often it's running. You may need to adjust the settings depending on the amount of rainfall in your area. Twice a week is a useful average. An irrigation system is run by a controller. You can program your controller according to a schedule, so that the system will operate at a specified time. You can choose up to three different start times for the irrigation system to remember. The best time to run an irrigation system is early in the morning, and not when the sun is high in the sky. If water is still on the leaves when the sun is at its peak, the sun evaporates the water from the leaves so quickly that the heat can burn holes through the leaves.
