How To Design And Build A Sprinkler System- A Complete Guide For The Do-It-Yourselfer
How To Design And Build A Sprinkler System-
This book explains how to design and build a sprinkler system to irrigate a residential landscape. Beginning with an inventory and description of the components of a sprinkler system, the book describes what the different parts are and what they do, as well as explanations of the appropriate use of the different parts. For example, when choosing sprinkler heads, when to use rotors compared with using spray or impact heads. The book covers all the components of a sprinkler system including heads, valves, controllers, wiring, backflow devices, piping and fittings. Building from that basic foundation, the reader is then given instruction in how to successfully design a sprinkler system including establishing a water source, zoning, pipe sizing, head layout and all the other necessary requirements. The design process incorporates a discussion of soil types, plant communities, and microclimates as well as the mechanical considerations. The outcome here is to help the reader design a sprinkler system that functions correctly, is cost effective, and that is appropriate to the existing or proposed landscape and site conditions. After the reader has designed a sprinkler system, the book goes through a step-by-step example of how to physically lay-out and install a sprinkler system, includ...

Turf Irrigation Manual: The Complete Guide to Turf and Landscape Sprinkler Systems
Turf Irrigation Manual: The Complete Guide to Turf
Proper maintenance of turfgrass and landscaping requires supplemental watering in most locales. Irrigation in its various forms has been practiced almost since the dawn of mankind. However, only in recent years have these principles been applied to the growth of a non-agricultural product. The Turf Irrigation Manual deals exclusively with sprinkler systems for turfgrass and landscaping. Irrigation by "sprinkling" as defined as gravity precipitation from nozzled sprinkling heads... the method most like natural rain. Recent developments in turf irrigation considered in this manual include increased residential and commercial usage of sprinkler systems due to affluency and ecology factors, and the trend the trend toward automated watering due principally to increases in labor costs and recognition of the need for more efficient water resource management. This manual is designed to be used as a guidebook for engineers, architects, designers and contractors, and as a text for academic students and the interested lay person desiring to obtain proficiency in the field of turf and landscape irrigation. Large format hard cover book, 366pp, illustrated with irrigation design and plumbing graphics, technical tables and technical data for electrical connections and materials.

Closed Circuit Trickle Irrigation Design: Theory and Applications (Research Advances in Sustainable Micro Irrigation)
Closed Circuit Trickle Irrigation Design: Theory and Applications
Closed circuit trickle irrigation is a form of micro irrigation that increases energy and water efficiency by using closed circuit drip irrigation systems designs. Modifications are made to traditional micro irrigation methods to reduce some of the problems and constraints, such as low compressor water at the end of irrigation lines. This approach has proved successful for the irrigation of fruit trees and some vegetable and field crops. Closed circuits of drip irrigation systems require about half of the water needed by sprinkler or surface irrigation. Lower operating pressures and flow rates result in reduced energy costs, and a higher degree of water control is attainable as well. Plants can be supplied with more precise amounts of water, and disease and insect damage is reduced because plant foliage stays dry. Fertilizers can also be applied through this type of system, which can result in a reduction of fertilizer and fertilizer costs. This new volume in the Research Advances in Sustainable Micro Irrigation book series presents a diverse collection of research on closed circuit irrigational technology and design and provides studies of its use on such crops as wheat, maize, yellow corn, soybeans, rice, and snap peas. The book explores: • Soil moisture and salinity distr...

Irrigation engineering: Sprinkler, trickle surface irrigation principles, design and agricultural practices
Trickle irrigation design
Preface:This text provides a rather complete review of trickle irrigation with sufficient handbook material and instruction for system design. It has been written with the student engineer, research adviser, as well as existing and potential users, in mind. To enhance its usefulness, this text is written with both metric and English units of measurement. Trickle irrigation is relatively new to both users and the scientific community. We realize that more research is needed to refine the design of systems, but we have endeavored to bridge many existing gaps in available knowledge in order to present a complete concept for trickle irrigation design. We hope that needed research will be forthcoming soon to further refine present design.
