Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q.What are the most commonly used automated garden irrigation systems for homes?

The following automated irrigation systems are available for gardens at home:

  • Surface - To water the surface using a network of water channels.
  • Sprinkler - To water a large surface area like grass lawns.
  • Drip/trickle - To water spots in a garden linking individual plants or trees.
  • Subsurface – A water network built below the ground to water the roots.

Automated garden sprinkler and drip/trickle irrigation systems are the most popular for small gardens.

Q.How does an automated sprinkler and drip irrigation system work?

  • Sprinkler irrigation is a method of applying irrigation water which is similar to natural rainfall. Water is distributed through a system of pipes, usually by a pump. It is then sprayed into the air through sprinklers so that it breaks up into small water drops that fall to the ground.
  • Drip irrigation is a type of micro-irrigation system that has the potential to save water and nutrients by allowing water to drip slowly to the roots of plants, either from above the soil surface or from below the surface. The goal is to place water directly into the root zone and minimize evaporation.

Q.What are the various components of an automated sprinkler or drip irrigation system?

A sprinkler and drip irrigation system usually consists of the following components:

  1. A pump unit.
  2. Tubings - main/sub-mains and laterals.
  3. Couplers.
  4. Sprinkler head (only in sprinkler irrigation system).
  5. Other accessories such as valves, bends, plugs, and risers.

Sometimes a water pump is also needed to store water that will be pumped through the automated sprinkler or drip irrigation system.

Q.Why does your garden need an automated sprinkler or drip irrigation system?

One of the main advantages of sprinkler and drip irrigation technology is a more efficient use of water for irrigation in gardens. Sprinkler and drip irrigation systems distribute water for a fixed duration, controlled automatically with a timer and more evenly across the garden, helping avoid wastage. If you have a large garden, it is worth exploring an automated irrigation system.

Q.What common issues arise in an automated sprinkler or drip irrigation system?

  • In sprinkler or overhead irrigation, water is piped to one or more central locations within the garden and distributed by overhead high-pressure sprinklers or guns. The most common issues arising out of this system is the sprinkler heads breaking, tubing getting cut and valve issues.
  • In a drip irrigation system, water is piped to a central location and then to various parts of the garden through tubing with small holes placed next to plants to enable dripping of water at these spots. The most common issues arising in this system are the tubing getting cut or drip points getting blocked with sand. Sometimes, a damaged tube at the distribution point causes garden flooding.

Q.What is the best time to water the garden with a sprinkler or irrigation system?

The best time to water the garden with a sprinkler irrigation system is under the following conditions:

  • The outside temperature should not be too high else the water will evaporate.
  • It should not be raining.

Early mornings before sunrise and late in the evening after sunset is the best time to switch on your automated irrigation system. In summer, this gap can be supplemented with a short irrigation cycle during the day either a few hours before noon and/or after when the sun is not directly overhead.
