In this article about drip irrigation system we will go through each step of installing a dripper for a pot in your garden.
Drip Irrigation System for pots
- Big Connector
- Small Connector
- Water Hose
In this step you should make a hole in your water pipe for irrigation. The hole should be a few mm smaller than the diameter of the big connector (1). Select a drill (5) and compare its diameter with that of the connector (1).
Make a marking on your drill using tape or band to ensure that the drill won’t go all the way through your water pipe.
Next insert the big connector (1) into the water pipe.
After that insert the small connector (2) into the big connector (1). The funnel of the small connector should point at you.
In this step join the water hose (4) with the small connector (2). To make the process easier, first place the end of the water hose into a hot water for 10 seconds and then connect it.
Finally, connect the dripper (3) to the water hose (4) and by turning its red head find the right water pressure for your plant.
