Installing a drip irrigation system into the outdoor container garden
Automated gardens are the most effective way to grow fruits and vegetables. The outdoor garden is still automated because the sun is light and is not checked. Irrigation and feeding can be automated to allow plants to get everything they need. Self-contained containers can be the only way to dry the plants in the hot summer day. If the temperature exceeds 85F, the plants are probably thirsty! Too much fun to manually treat plants all day to ensure they get what they need. They may not be there when they need water, and plants can not control their lives. You may have a homeless ventilation system for water supply while you are on vacation, but when you come back, you ask yourself, "Why do not I always use an automated system?"
If you're new to drip systems, you want to read the Introduction to Drip Systems to get acquainted with the parts you're discussing. For this project you will need:
* 1/2 inch tube
* 1/2 inch pipe connector
* 1/4 inch tube
* Drop line punch
* Diving Pump
* Tupperware Container
* Digital Timer
* Possible Extension Cable
* Air Pump
* Air Duct
19659002] As always, the first step is to design the container's garden. Find the system you want to use to maximize sunlight. Keep in mind that your pipe should come from the container in the container garden. The size of the water pump determines the distance you need to play. Keep in mind that the water pump has become powerful through joints and drips. Water pumps are one of the most expensive parts of the drip system in the home, but usually they have a guarantee of at least one year. After recognizing the productivity ratio of irrigation tanks, you do not want to return to your daily irrigation.
Place the half tube tube at one end of the end connection and create a chunk. Screw the tube around 2-3 seconds and then make the end through the other end of the end closure. The result must be a sealed waterproof end to produce pressure on the drip system pipes. Place the 1/2 "tube at the other end of the water pump end
After the pump is assembled, it is ready to create a drip line. Holes with holes in half inch pipes where you want the 1/4 inch drift lines to start Do not squeeze the vinyl or any material that is too hard to use or pass through both ends and leak
You can choose from a wide range of dripping emitters in the hydroponic store You can get inbound or compensating drip units that are described in more detail in the Introduction to Dropping Systems This system is equipped with compensating drip emitter because the half inch tube is on the ground and the 1/4 inch tubes erect the tank length
] Put 1/4 inch straight connectors ac towards the end of the bark, without a drip. The straight connector goes into the hole you made earlier in the half pipe tube. The connection is that the water comes from your 1/2 inch main duct to your unique drip line. Fewer connection bridges and fewer dripping emitters mean greater performance and additional reach.
This is a long guide to a home drip system, but it's with me and it's about the freedom of irritation! The next step is to make a reservoir. Drill or burn a hole on the side of the tank to make half a inch tube. If you just want your cover to sit on top of the reservoir, you can fix it. Wait for greater evaporation speed and dirt if you do not use a sealed lid. Keep in mind that a cleaner growth space is a better growing space.
Before connecting the pump, you must enter the half pipe tube that is connected to the water pump through the hole. The water pump does not fit through the 1/2 hole! This step is very simple with the drill using a 1/2 "drill bit. If using plastic, make sure it does not break on the side of the tank. If you are easily reped, you probably use a substance that is too weak to hold water for a long time.
To this outdoor container, I bought a pot that was already in the holes in the handle. As it falls in the rain in the area where the reservoir can be filled with rain water and knocks the lid from its top. You can drill your own drain holes with a simple drill if you do not want to use the tank.
When the water pump is in place and descends to the bottom of the tank, it is ready to add aeration equipment. The air pump provides oxygen supply in the tank and ensures water movement. Long-lasting water may be rather ugly and plants love oxygen in the root zone. If you are not sure how to set an air pump, see the manual for mounting water pump pumps in hydroponic systems.
One thing you probably can not find in a local hydroponic shop is a cheap waterproof air pump. The lack of waterproof air pumps most hydroponic horticulturists are discouraged from using natural sunlight. A clever to do yourself gardener finds a solution. You will need to obtain a plastic container with a lid that closes tightly. Fill a hole in the tank at the top. Make sure the hole is large enough for the electrical plug and the trachea to penetrate. I used a screwdriver to create a small fracture for both things.
Place the air hose in the hole before connecting it to the air pump. You do not want the hole to be bigger than it should be. A large container is safer because the hole can be larger on the floor and away from potential flooding. Do not insert the hole through the tank lid because rain penetrates into the electronics!
The tank and the watertight air pump were placed in an area covered by an electrical connector. I had to use an extension cable for the air pump to reach the output. I needed a 3-pole extension cord for the water pump. The digital timer with which the water pump is switched on and off automatically should be in a covered area where rain can not enter the parts.
Novice Gardeners – Do not Understand Air Pump is too complicated or unnecessary for you. This is the first mistake as a novice gardener! Automate electricity and add oxygen and anything else that plants need. 100% access to perfect plants!
Our friends will be jealous when they see that "high tech" is your garden! Now that the reservoir is up and running, it is ready to finish the automatic drip system.
Place the containers around the drip line so that each line reaches the desired area. I used two drip irons per container, for three gallons and up. In a 1-gallon tank, a dripping emitter can cover the entire medium in a matter of minutes. At least keep her plants alive while on holiday. Rain will be set with rain drops and outdoor plants. Tell me you went for a week and fall for three days. These three days did not need to run the drip system! It may have had an adverse effect due to excessive irrigation. Make sure the containers are well drained and carefully selected by the media. Well-mixed media are key to the plants to succeed. Different crops are preferred from different production sites and growing media.
TIP: Some digital timers come with a daily setting. Setting the sun allows you to run drip systems at the next day or at different intervals. The drip system may run 3 times a day, alternating 1 time a day. If this tip embarrasses you will come back later when you've worked with the timer settings of the drip system.
