Some tips for home-made irrigation system

Do you want to manage your garden in a simple way?

Drip irrigation is an easy, effective way of giving your plants water when and where they need it---at their root zone. Drip watering prevents wasted water in areas that don't need it, and by denying water, you can prevent habitats for weeds to flourish. When you use this method, the water from soaker hoses or emitters slowly drips around the base of plants and provides the optimum amount of water, with little or no wasteful runoff. All you have to do is turn on the hose that connects your drip system to a faucet and let it run for an hour or so when needed.

Of course the best way is to set up an irrigation system with a water timer which could help you to control the whole system properly even when you’re away from the garden.

Here are some tips when designing an irrigation system:
1. Determine where your drip system needs to be.

2. Measure and cut your black hose to fit the area.

3. Place the black hose in the center of the bed where it will exist.

4. Using your hole punch, make holes for emitters where each plant you want to water will be.

5. Insert emitters into the holes you have punched in the black hose.

6. Place an end cap at the end of the black plastic hose.

7. Connect the system to a water timer connected on the water source.

8. Turn on the faucet and start the irrigation system.

Prevent your water timer from freezing!

Many of the ponds we install include an auto-fill valve. This device keeps your water level consistent as ponds loose water due to splash and evaporation. We commonly install a simple water timer on the hose spigot, in order to feed the auto-fill every few days. Be warned! If you have one of these timers it is essential that you disconnect it during winter. Otherwise water will freeze, expand and break your nifty water timer. If you need any further help with your timer, please contact us by kanz@ms54.hinet.net


How to Clean a Hose Nozzle?

Garden hoses dispense an almost universal cleaning agent: water. So it might seem odd that from time to time, you actually need to clean your hose nozzle, the very thing that you use to clean so many other objects. Over time and with use, your hose nozzle might begin to build up chemical deposits from minerals in the water and store dirt and grime from its time in the yard and garden. Because of this, it is recommended that you clean your hose nozzle every 3 to 4 months.
things you'll need:
  • Bucket
  • Measuring cup
  • Water
  • Rubber gloves (optional)
  • Bleach
  • Mild dish-washing detergent
  • Sponge
  • Toothbrush
1. Unscrew the hose nozzle and set it aside.
2. Measure 4 cups hot water into the bucket.
3.      Put on your rubber gloves, if you choose to use them. These will protect your hands while working with the bleach.
4.      Add 1/4 cup bleach to the water in the bucket. The bleach kills bacteria growing in or on the hose nozzle.
5.      Add 2 tbsp. mild dish-washing detergent to the water and bleach solution.
6.      Place the hose nozzle in the bucket and allow it to soak for 15 minutes.
7. Wash the surface area of the nozzle, everything that is accessible, with the sponge.
8. Wash the inside of the nozzle, where it attaches to the hose, and the spout where it discharges water, with the toothbrush, dipping it into the cleaning solution as needed.

9.      Rinse the nozzle in cool, clean water.
10.  Set the nozzle on a flat, dry surface and allow it to air-dry.
11.  Dispose of the remaining cleaning solution by pouring down a drain, and rinse your bucket with clean water.
12.  Wash your hands or rinse your rubber gloves, using the mild dish-washing detergent to remove any traces of the bleach.
Tips & Warnings :
Bleach is extremely toxic to your health and should be kept away from the eyes and mouth. Keep it out of the reach of children, and wash your hands thoroughly when you are finished.
