Micro irrigation or low pressure drip irrigation has long been considered to be the most optimal way to water your plants and garden areas.
Drip irrigation eliminates wasting water on paths, paved areas, or on plants that may not require as much water as others in your garden.

Drip System Design considerations
It is recommended to keep your drip irrigation kit on it a separate zone. You can always combine zones together at one hose bib location using our brass manifold connector. For example your could have one zone for your lawn sprinkler heads and then another for your micro irrigation planting and potting areas. In addition you could water each separately with 2 timers.
Advantages to drip irrigation
Although sprinkler and Micro Irrigation Systems seem to have much in common, they are actually quite different. Sprinklers deliver a lot of water quickly and are designed for lawn and garden borders. With conventional watering systems sometimes too much water drains away and is wasted simply because it is applied too quickly for the soil and the plants to absorb it.
Micro irrigation also keeps the root zone evenly moist at all times. It does this by delivering small amounts of water more often and watering the plants over longer periods of time. Most importantly micro irrigation prevents plants from becoming waterlogged and therefore subject to rot.
So take advantage of our drip irrigation system kit today an distribute the water directly to the areas that need it!
