New to drip system need advice!
I just update some of my sprinkler system to drip system for my tropical fruit tree, but I'm not sure if this the right way. Assume I want to give my plant 15 gallon per week on regular basic, so I installed 7 emitters rate @ 2 gph on 1/2 tube line, and will run it 30 minutes twice a week. Now my soil is kind of clay so to run all 30 mins would create I lot of water run off, to avoid this problem I have to cycle it 3 times @ 10 mins every 45 mins to let all water remaining around basin to absorb down. Is this the right way to do, am I water too much or too often? Btw these plant are newly transplant in ground this early spring and I live in south California in Moreno valley where the day time can get pretty hot some time.
