Drip Irrigation troubleshooting
I put in a drip system for my home veggie garden. It consists of a timer/controller (Orbit), a filter, a 30psi regulator, and 2 legs of 1/2" supply pipe. Each plant has a ring that I fashioned out of drip line (3 emitters per ring, looped and taped together). Each loop emits roughly 2.4Gph.
The system is working pretty well, except that 2 emitters at the end of one leg seem to be getting less water/pressure; in spite of keeping both legs roughly the same length, and with roughly the same flow.
I don't know that it will be a problem, but I'm wondering if using 1/4" or 1/2" tubing to connect the ends of the legs together would better equalize the pressure between the two.
Otherwise, this was a great experience, and buying a kit from a place like DripworksUSA made the project so simple.
