Grow vegetables in the greenhouse simply, the main thing is to ensure proper care. Drip irrigation solves many problems associated with the drying of the soil and the growth of crops. You can order an already assembled system, but not every owner wants to part with a tidy sum. It is possible to provide drip irrigation and independently, thereby saving a significant part of the budget
This type of irrigation has obvious advantages:
- standard irrigation contributes to the ejection of air from the root system, and air is necessary for the proper development of culture; water feeds the root directly, and does not spray over the surface; drip irrigation to reduce the amount of fertilizer.
Thus, it is possible to add fertilizer to the root system directly. Enough to fill the capacity of nutrient solution and nourish the culture
To assemble the irrigation system it is necessary to purchase special drip systems. The main thing is to arrange the supply of liquid. First of all, it is necessary to measure the layout of the beds and draw a diagram. Main to follow the chosen scale
Part of the system is the source of water, this is the capacity to which the tubes are connected. Water from the tank is already distributed directly into the root system of each plant. The liquid can be supplied by gravity, for this purpose, the container is raised in order to create the pressure necessary for delivery. Frequently use pumps or water pressure in a conventional water pipe
In the system, you need to install a filter, you can define the location yourself. For the irrigation system, a main pipe can be used. Usually this item is not included. It is better to choose a tube with a diameter of 32 mm. This pipe is connected to the plumbing system using an ordinary garden hose. The drip tape is connected directly to the main pipe. This element is located in beds, in all rows. At the end of the tape you need to put a cap
The connection of the main pipe with the hose is carried out with the help of special fittings, in any store you can buy them. A falling hose is an excellent place to install a collapsible filter. This will clean the devices without problems. Install the filter simply, you need to focus on the pointers on the body. Next is the installation of connectors
Before installing the drip strip, it is necessary to make the necessary markings on the pipeline in accordance with the layout of the beds. Markings are drilled with a drill. The diameter of the holes must ensure a tight fit of the tape nozzle. To eliminate the leak, it is necessary to provide forcing with rubber seals
The system of drip irrigation implies, if necessary, switching off the irrigation of a single bed, without stopping the irrigation supply to the greenhouse. It is very convenient and you can control the process yourself. To do this, install cranes, which produce a trip. Such variable feeding is necessary for plants that do not need constant watering. Droppers on need to be placed on top
The length of the tapes can be controlled independently, you just need to cut a sufficient amount of tape and muffle its end. The other end of the main pipe must be damped using a special device. It will simplify the control of the water supply to the watering controller of the automatic type. Such a device controls the supply of water to the main pipe. You can program the machine to a specific mode, based on the amount of water delivered per day. Install the device after the filter
For irrigation, it is not necessary to use a central water supply, at the cottage often a source of water is removed from the greenhouse. It is possible to adjust the barrel capacity, the main thing is to monitor the level of the liquid.
