Use less water, save more money

Drip irrigation systems utilize evenly-spaced emitters to deliver water subsurface, or straight to the roots of plants, trees, and bushes. These emitters are pressure-regulated, operating at a low volume to conserve water and save you money.

Drip irrigation systems offer three main advantages. They are:

  • Accuracate
  • Efficient
  • Hidden
  • Inexpensive to fix

Because drip irrigation pipe is subsurface, evaporation is greatly reduced, and windy conditions are no longer a factor. Drip systems also avoid the troubles caused by plant growth, as water can be lost on leaves blocking other plants. When compared to other watering solutions, drip irrigation proves itself a modern and efficient method.

Drip systems are also aesthetically pleasing, as they are almost completely hidden from view, allowing your landscape or water garden to be viewed uninterrupted. What’s more is that these systems are comprised of inexpensive parts and are easy to fix.

Frequently Asked Questions

Drip irrigation, also known as trickle irrigation, is a method of watering plants where water is slowly delivered directly to the plant’s root zone. This is achieved through a network of valves, pipes, tubing, and emitters. Drip irrigation minimizes water wastage by reducing evaporation and runoff, and it can be more efficient than other forms of irrigation.

Drip irrigation is versatile and can be used for a wide variety of plants and landscapes, from vegetable gardens to lawns and flower beds. The system can be adjusted according to the specific water needs of each plant type, making it a good fit for diverse landscapes. However, it may not be the best choice for larger areas like sports fields where sprinkler irrigation may be more efficient.

Drip irrigation is very efficient because it delivers water directly to the root zone of plants, minimizing evaporation and runoff. It can save up to 30-50% more water compared to traditional forms of irrigation such as sprinkler systems. The exact amount of water saved can depend on the specific setup of your system and how well it’s managed.

While drip irrigation systems do require maintenance to keep them operating efficiently, the workload is not overly burdensome. Regular tasks include checking for leaks, flushing the system at the start and end of the season, cleaning filters, and occasionally replacing parts that wear out like emitters. Most homeowners find that the water savings and improved plant health are well worth the maintenance effort.
