10 Best Features of a Drip Irrigation System
A drip irrigation works system come to mind for me every morning when I go outside to grab the newspaper and notice sprinklers running.
Given that plants absorb water through their roots, and sprinklers throw water out into the air, I am aware of how inefficient they are.
Maybe this is why the average American household uses 320 gallons of water per day and that almost one-third of all water use, nearly 9 billion gallons per day, is used to water lawns and gardens.
A drip irrigation system has great features that solve these problems and many more. Here are ten of them:
- EFFICIENT: water applied only where and when it is needed
- INSTALLATION: simple and easy – no special tools or glue are required.
- REDUCED PEST PROBLEMS: water applied directly to roots cuts down on water-borne pests
- VERSATILE: can be used in new and existing areas and in virtually any terrain
- ROOT GROWTH: low volume application of water encourages vigorous root growth
- REDUCES WEEDS – only waters the plants that you want to grow
- ECONOMICAL: significantly lowers water use saving money
- LONG LIFE: constructed of high quality, durable plastics designed to withstand harsh conditions
- GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT: reduces water use and minimizes water loss due to runoff
- ADAPTABLE: can be easily expanded to irrigate additional plants
- MADE IN AMERICA: most brands are made in the US
