The Q&A Archives: irrigation setup

Question: I am trying to set up an irrigation system on my house and I wan't to divide the area in two zones so I can receive the best water flow per sprinkler. What item should I buy if I were using a 1/2 drip house?

Answer: You'll need a control panel with two zones (each will work independently - you program each zone to run at specific times, on specific days, for specific amounts of time). There are several brands available at your local Home Depot and you'll also find sprinkler system booklets to help you determine which parts you'll need to build your irrigation system. Rainbird has the most detailed "how-to" booklet. You can plan your system using their guide and then purchase less costly parts.

Best wishes with your new system!
