DIY Irrigation :: Drippers & Driplines

Drip irrigation is the most efficient method of irrigating and while sprinkler systems are around 75-85% efficient, drip systems typically are 90% or higher.

What that means is much less wasted water! For this reason drip is the preferred method of irrigation in the dry regions of Australia. But drip irrigation has other benefits which make it useful almost anywhere. It is easy to install, easy to design, can be very inexpensive, and can reduce disease problems associated with high levels of moisture on some plants.

With the total banning of traditional sprinkler and irrigation systems in some drought areas (ie Sydney) the ONLY form of automatic irrigation you can use in your garden is a drip irrigation system.

Air Release Valves

Air release valves should be fitted to the highest point in your drip system to release air pockets from the system. This prevents dirt from sucking back into the dripline when it empties, which is the most common cause of dripline blocking. It has a 1/2" threaded base which screws into a poly female threaded tee in the dripline.

Line Flushing Valves

Automatic flushing valve which will disperse approx. 4 litres of water at the beginning of every irrigation cycle. This will flush out any dirt particles accumulated in the dripline and should be installed at the lowest point in the system. It has a 1/2" threaded base which screws into a poly female threaded tee in the dripline.

Disc Filters

Innovative filter design with long lasting and durable plastic disk filter system which retains large amounts of solids. Requires little maintenance or cleaning and is corrosion resistant. This is the recommended filter to use with drip irrigation using red disks.

System On Indicator Flags

These flags are plugged into the poly pipe somewhere in the drip system. When the drip system is ON the orange flag will stand up as a visual indication.
