FAQ: How much drip tape can I run at one time on a garden hose? Flow?
The Flow of your drip tape is the 3rd set of numbers in the Model #. This number is stated in GPM per every 100' of tape that you run.
EXAMPLE: EA5081245-7500 This tape outputs .45 gpm for every 100 feet that you run OR 4.5 gpm for every 1,000' of tape that you run.
TRY IT : 1. I have 12 gpm of water coming out of your garden hose at the field/plot. Therefore, I can run 2,666 feet of drip tape at one time. (MATH: 12 divided by .45= 26.666 x 100 feet = 2,666 feet)
2. I have 14 gpm of water " " " ... Therefore, I can run 3,111 feet of drip tape at one time.
Take your Flow (.22, .34, .45, .67, 1.34 and divide it into your GPM. Multiply that # x 100 feet.
How do you figure your GPM ? Take your garden hose close to your garden plot or field. Run it for approx 2 minutes. Then time yourself filling up a 5 gallon bucket. How long did it take? 30 seconds would mean you roughly have 10 gpm.
Drip Tape needs 6 PSI to work properly; and not more than 12 PSI or it will split.
