5 STEPS FOR YOUR PERFECTLY PERSONALIZED IRRIGATION SYSTEM.

Irrigation in your garden, All the gardens are different. Therefore, each garden should be irrigated exactly according to its needs. On the following pages, we show you, step by step, how you can plan and assemble, yourself. These instructions will help you choose the right products for your garden and mount them, then, effortlessly.

Take our example as a template and draw your custom pattern on the millimeter paper that you will find on the last page. For starters, you only need a few pencils – and, of course, a garden.
Here are your 5 steps to success:

1. Sketch the garden
2. Plan the type of irrigation
3. Determine the infrastructure
4. Plan for irrigation programming
5. Identify irrigation elements

STEP 1: SKIP THE GARDEN.

First, draw the horizontal plane of your property on millimeter paper and then go back to your house, the areas to be irrigated and the position of the tap or an alternative water source. For a clear and faithful representation, the scales 1/100 (1 cm = 1 m) or 1/200 (1 cm = 2 m) are recommended.

STEP 2: PLANNING THE TYPE OF IRRIGATION.

a) Drip Irrigation

DROP-TO-DROP IRRIGATION FOR INDIVIDUAL PLANTS AND ROWS OF PLANTS.

Drip irrigation is used to apply water in a targeted way near the roots. Thus, you promote the growth of the plant while reducing consumption of water. Thanks to the uniform distribution of pressure, the water is applied so homogeneously over a length up to 50 m. Depending on the need, there are two ways
to set up drip irrigation: either using the individual microporous hose and can be extended, either with the help of drip sleeves to be connected according to your needs on the Rain System hose.

Microporous tube

Double layer hose (PVC inside,  Textile outside) for reliable watering the along rows of plants and hedges.
Available in lengths of 10 m and 25 m, this hose can be shortened to suit lengthened up to 50 m. In addition, it combines easily with Rain System. For optimal application of water use the hose at a pressure of 2 bar.

IRRIGATION DROPPER

Dripper with a regulation of the water flow of 0 to 10 l / h for directly targeted irrigation of the plant. Ideal for rows of plants, such as vegetable squares, it is connected to the Rain supply hose System entirely according to your needs.

b) Surface watering

SURFACE WATERING FOR SMALL AND MEDIUM SURFACES.

Our versatile micro-sprinklers are ideal for watering any surface of your flowerbeds, perennial herbaceous plants, and planted borders. On a radius of 1.3 m (at 2 bar) up to 1.8 m (at 4 bar), three watering angles allow you a perfectly flexible irrigation. The optimum water flow according to your needs is easily set on the micro-sprinklers head (0 – 55 l / h).

c) Irrigation of planters

The watering set for planters is the ideal basic equipment for your terrace or balcony.
Connecting pipes with a diameter of only 4 mm carry water from the supply pipe
Rain System directly into your pots and planters. In addition, drippers, couplings T and fixation peaks allow even better-personalized irrigation of your plants past

4 mm connecting pipe

Through connections, water is transported from supply pipe in connecting pipes thin and, so, in your pots and planters.

Depending on the need, water is applied using the 15 drippers and micro-sprinklers contained in the set. These make it possible to adapt the flow of water from 0 to 10 l / h and can be distributed at will in your planters by means of specific 3-way T-connectors.

STEP 3: DETERMINE THE INFRASTRUCTURE.

What is the right length of pipe so that water reaches your plants?
What connections are needed to connect multiple elements?
To facilitate the installation of the watering system that you have chosen, think of the necessary infrastructure right away.

SUPPLY PIPES AND FILTERS.

the faucet and the Rain System supply hose.

used for water supply of the entire system and is laid down along the surface to water. With a length of 10 m, it can be shortened to willing and combined with the microporous pipe. The drippers, repair collars and micro-sprinklers can be optimally attached to this pipe.

Particle filter and pressure reducer

Particle filter and pressure reducer with filter To protect your System against the dirt particles, we recommend mounting a filter upstream. Our reducer of pressure already integrates a filter and allows, in the presence of a strong pressure in the pipe, reduce the inlet pressure to 4 bar pressure Release.

STEP 4: PREDICTING THE PROGRAMMING OF IRRIGATION.

To make irrigation of your garden even more comfortable, our watering programmers integrate easily into your custom system. the system irrigation controllers control the irrigation of your garden perfectly according

necessities. A sensor continuously measures the humidity in the vicinity of the root and transmits these values by radio to the sensor timer. If the requested humidity value is not reached, watering is started automatically at the set time.

STEP 5: IDENTIFY THE IRRIGATION ELEMENTS.

Once you have chosen the right infrastructure, the optimal water type, and the programming
Ideal, you only need to identify these various elements in your scheme. The sample sketch on the next page can serve as a guide.

Start with the watering programmer at the tap before drawing on the diagram the garden hose leading to the surface to be watered. On this surface, locate, then, all the required elements – from the System supply hose or hose microporous up to the fittings and end-of-line connections, through the filter. Then determine the number of drippers and micro-sprinklers required for this surface and locate them. Now you can easily measure the lengths of pipe needed and calculate the number of spare parts needed.
