I thought I would share this in case anyone is interested in setting up a battery operated drip irrigation system. I put together this graphic to help pinpoint each component. It is really simple to do once you understand what components you need. Illustrated is the main portion of the drip system. This should help get you started!
For a complete system you will need:
- 3/4″ drip tubing
- 1/4″ drip lines
- barbs and goof plugs
- connectors and holder stakes
- other types of drippers depending on your irrigation needs
While you’re installing a drip system I would recommend adding a boogie brew inline water filter to help reduce/remove chlorine before it reaches your plants. If you use this link http://www.boogiebrew.net/gyg you’ll get a 40% discount off your purchase of the filter. I am a fan of John Kohler from Growing Your Greens and with his discount you can get the boogie brew water filter plus a 10 gallon compost tea all delivered for $44. That’s a great price. Take advantage while you can!
