  • Use Compression fittings because they are anti leaks. Usually, HDPE Pipes or PVC are commonly used. 
  • Step 3 Do the trenches where the main line with be buried (HDPE Pipes). Lay the laterals and connect to the drip.
  • Step 4. Create provision for main and sub main connection.
  • Step 5. Drill the sub main pipe where the drip connection will be attached to.
  • Step 6. Connect the drip to the main line.

What is needed for drip irrigation?

  • A drip irrigation system must include the mainline, valve, sub-main, backflow preventer, pressure regulator, filter, tubing adapters and fittings, drip tubing, emitters, and end caps.
  • The mainline is the pipe that links your outside faucet to the valve, which acts as the water supply. The sub-main runs from the valve to where the drip tubing is connected. Sub-mains are often used when many drip tubing lines and zones are connected to the same mainline water supply. The mainline and sub-main should be no more than 400 feet apart.
  • The valve controls the flow of water into the system and can be set to operate automatically or manually. Backflow preventers are necessary to keep irrigation water from returning to the pipes and compromising your main water supply.
  • Filters keep dissolved pollutants in your water from interfering with the emitters. To safeguard the valve and pressure regulator as well as the emitters, install filters at the emitters or at the water supply. It is preferred if the filter has a mesh screen with a mesh count of at least 150 mesh or higher.
  • Water pressure is controlled via pressure regulators. This is the situation if the water pressure is more than 40 pounds per square inch.
