Drip irrigation installation

Post  Madcapper on 6/25/2013, 1:12 pm

I installed a drip irrigation system in my sole 4x4 bed last night. The package was on the door step when I got home. After getting the kids to bed I cracked it open and tackled this project. All in all it took me about 45 minutes to install. I must say that I am extremely happy with the ease of installation on this kit, it included everything I needed to irrigate my bed from a pressure regulator and filter all the way down to all the connections and elbows needed to run my drip line which is conveniently spaced every 12 inches, perfect for a SFG!!

This is the kit I used,

http://www.dripworks.com/product/KGB1

There were 2 main reason I went with this kit, first, it has everything you need to complete your irrigation system right in the box. Second, the website setup and design is extremely user friendly, the videos posted there, that show installation, were extremely helpful. To be totally honest, when I first started looking at kits, it was a bit overwhelming because of the different sizes of hoses, connectors, and spigot attachments. By watching one short video, it all came into focus for me, and because their videos were so helpful I decided to go with this kit, to me the lengths they went in creating the videos just makes me feel like they are a good company that would provide good customer service if I need it in the future.


I paired this system with this Timer, which was the only thing the kit does not include (technically not required)

The ease of use on this timer is pretty amazing. If I can figure it out in about 5 minutes, you can too. I set it up to water twice a day for 30 minutes initially, but I can tweak the program to water more or less each watering, and change the frequency, extremely easily. I highly recommend this timer as well.

Unfortunately I dont have any pics because the light was waning as I was installing the kit, but I will take some this weekend and add them to this thread in a subsequent post.
