In this installation a 1000 series system is installed on a hose  or drip system in front of a multi zone timer and is under pressure at all times (constant pressure – 1000 series only).  The system will feed through any sprinklers, sprayers or drip emitters that are connected to the timer, each time a zone is watered.  One system can conveniently feed all of the areas automatically.  The systems come complete with all the components needed to connect to a garden hose connection.

How To Choose Which Emitter or Dripper Is Right For Your Drip Irrigation System

Drip Irrigation Emitter/Dripper Comparison

There are many ways to apply water to plants with drip irrigation. The component at the end of the line that actually delivers water to the plant is called an emitter or dripper. Drip emitters may drip very slowly or output a steady flow of water. Some are staked and some stream water in “fingers” or a fine spray. Pressure-compensating drip emitters contain a rubber or silicone diaphragm that allow them to maintain the same output even if the water pressure fluctuates. Non-pressure-compensating drip emitters are less expensive but the flow will very with changes in elevation and pressure.

Pressure Loss Chart For PE Tubing

An important consideration for both Drip Irrigation Systems and Sprinkler Irrigation Systems is pressure loss over distance for distribution, lateral and drip lines.  The following chart illustrates basic pressure loss and flow capacity for both Poly Tubing and Schedule 40 PVC pipe.
