Greenhouse automatic watering sytem

Post  dooper11 on 3/15/2014, 12:59 am

I want to put a rain barrel (55 gallon....one or two) in the greenhouse that will be powered by a sump pump, maybe a 1584 1/2HP.  And want to irrigate a 8x12 greenhouse with approximately 60 linear feet of hose....30 feet on each side....want a fertilizer system also.  Will want a timer also.  Does anyone have any suggestions as to what can be done or has been done.  I will be gone for 11 to 12 days and want it automatic.  Am wondering if can run one side at a time to keep water pressure etc....any suggestions?????  Thanks for any help.  I have had greenhouse now for a few years and need a great watering system for seedlings and then 4" pots and then on and on....so want to be able to turn some sections on and off if need be...thanks from the newbee Virginia thanks

Research some of the micro tubing, drip line systems. Some have battery operated manifolds for off/on pressurized systems.

This is just one example. I buy the 1/4' 6-inch spaced drip lines and some fittings from them.
