Drip irrigation, sprinkler irrigation, and other various forms of irrigation are vital parts to a happy garden. Not only can a proper irrigation system save water, it can also save you time and money. You can even set a timer to your system, so you don’t even have to turn anything on!
Drip and sprinkler irrigation is used in soil grows. Using this method can ensure that just your roots are getting the water they need.
Common Drip Irrigation System Components:
A steady water supply
Shut off valves
Drip irrigation hole puncher
Poly tube stakes or staples
First and foremost, you’re going to need a good starting point with your irrigation water supply. Make sure to watch for tripping hazards. You then want to map out how the drip line will run through your garden.
Choose the emitter style and flow rate you’ll need. This is dependent on your plants or soil type.
Lay your tubing in your garden based on the plan you set earlier.
Punch each hole where you’ll want water emitted. Attach your emitters.
If you have a timer, make sure to set your timer for the correct intervals
Finally, watch your garden grow!
Using your Irrigation Tools:
Drip irrigation hole punchers are used exactly as the name implies. You’ll measure and align the exact spot for your emitter. From there, firmly press the metal tip into the poly tubing. This will create a perfect breach in the side of your tubing.
You can then attach your emitters and watch the water run!
Hydrobuilder offers multi cutting tools so you can ensure the poly tubing you’re running is the exact length you need. The multi cutting tools are perfect to get the right cut every time. These are vital when using emitters.
Irrigation cutting tools are extremely important. Using the right tool ensures the right outcome. You wouldn’t paint a house with a toothbrush, so why try trimming your tubing with kitchen scissors? A proper cut will ensure that your emitter fits correctly, and also ensures that the line will remain structurally sound longer.
If you are looking to customize your irrigation system to the tee, hydrobuilder also has what you need. The drip line punch tools offered on site will make a daunting task easy. Press perfect punches with ease every time! Powering your own punches allow you to navigate your flow to the exact area your plants need.
Hydrobuilder is even there for those who get a little over excited with their punches. Hole punch plugs are perfect for just those instances! These plugs are also great for those looking to reuse their irrigation lines. So these plugs can also save you money down the road, and who doesn’t love that!
Drip irrigation hole punchers and plugs aren’t the only tools offered. We also carry staple stakes! Staple stakes are a KEY part of setting up your irrigation system. Without these easy to forget but necessary to remember tools, your lines can take on a life of their own.
