California can now breathe a sigh of relief after Governor Jerry Brown declared an end to the historical drought that devastated the Golden State for the past 5 years. Prior to this, Brown issued a state wide mandate on property owners to cut water by 25-percent, resulting in muc...

Converting a conventional spray system to drip can provide a quick return on investment in terms of dollars and drips. Plus, it is the responsible thing to do.  There are a few important concepts you have to keep in mind when converting an existing irrigation system to a drip irr...

Drip Irrigation can be a useful tool in achieving LEED certification. LEED, (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) as described in the U.S. Green Building Council website is a “rating system that encourages the adoption of sustainable green building and development pract...

Irrigation control valves should always be placed up stream of the pressure regulator and filters. There are times, however, when this is not possible. If such is the case, the pressure loss through the valve must be calculated and the “real pressure” to the first emitter determi...

We are working in a time where cutting edge technology has made an impact in our industry. The old comparison of irrigation controllers to lamp timers no longer applies. Today professional landscapers are asked to work with daily weather data, historical horticultural conditions...

The process of injecting fertilizer into a drip irrigation system is not new. Years of performance show that this can be extremely efficient and very effective. Often referred to as “Fertigation”, fertilizer is injected into the water supply that is regulated by one of a wide var...

Water supply pressures from municipal sources can reach levels of 150 psi or more. This is well above the pressure limit of many components in a micro-irrigation system. Therefore, it is important to utilize a pressure-regulator in any micro-irrigation system, especially if the w...
