DRIP DESIGN GUIDE by Berry Hill Irrigation
Step 1: Add up your total row feet of drip tape in each field. Figure GPM (gallons per minute) in each field by total feet x flow rate of tape.
Step 2: Pick Sub-main Pipe size by your flow going through. 1 1/2” up to 17 gpm 2” up to 35 gpm 3” up to 75 gpm 4” up to 160 gpm. We usually use flattube (Oval Hose)
Step 3: Choose a manifold that fits your fields layout and carries enough water for that field. Manifold B is most desired because of even pressure over submain.
Step 4: Chose Main Line that will carry gpm for each field that you would like to water at one time. 1 1/2” 30 gpm, 2” 50 gpm 3” 110 gpm 4” 190 gpm. We usually use Layflat.
Step 5: Chose Media Filters that will allow enough flow for all fields that you would like to water at one time and handle pressure. Fiberglass Filters are the most popular and handle up to 50 psi.
Step 6: Choose a Fertilizer injector. For pond systems, we recommend a Mazzei Injector. For Homeowners and Gardens (large or small), the EZ Flo is an excellent choice.
Step 7: Pick a pump that will deliver enough water and leave you with enough pressure to make the injector, filters and loss in the pipes. Please call for assistance.
Step 8: Decide on your fittings you would like to use: 400B fitting or 420-BV-06-LS that has valve on each row. Add up total number of rows and order one fitting for each and a punch.
Step 9: Order fittings to go around obstructions and to mend pipe as needed. Tape couplings, goof plugs, clamps, Insert fittings
