  • Underground irrigation
    water flow rate The water flow rate can be measured easily using a container of known volume and checking the time required to fill it For example if a 10 litre container can be filled in 20 seconds the flow rate is 30 litres per minute Plan the system You ll need a compass to draw the circumferences of the circles or segments served by each sprinkler until you have covered the entire area For better results install 90 sprinklers at the corners of the area to be watered 180 sprinklers along the borders and 360 sprinklers in the open spaces The examples given here show the required positions to cover narrow and long gardens uniformly As we can see in the examples the circumferences of each watered area will overlap to ensure complete coverage of the surface area and perfusion of a uniform water quantity at all points Divide the system into circuits Referring to the sprinkler performance data table mark the water consumption in litres per minute alongside each sprinkler on the layout diagram Now group together the sprinklers in different zones use different colour pens adding together the water consumption of each one progressively Make sure the water consumption of each zone is no higher than the available flow rate Try to create a balanced system each circuit should have the same water consumption Plot the path of the tubes Starting from the point at which the solenoid valves will be installed to control each circuit plot the connecting path of each valve to the corresponding sprinklers grouped together in zones thereby obtaining independently controlled circuits Since you have to create a channel in which to bury the polyethylene tube it is advisable to plot straight lines avoiding paths terraces and other obstacles that will be hard to cross when actually installing the tube Diagrams of irrigated areas The diagrams below provide sprinkler positioning examples bear in mind that 90 sprinklers should be positioned at the corners of the garden 180 sprinklers should be positioned along the sides of the garden adjustable sprinklers should be used for angles or 270 or irregular angles 360 sprinklers should be used for any central areas that are not yet covered Pressure drops Pay attention to the PRESSURE DROP in the tubes this table shows the values to be subtracted from the static pressure available upline The DYNAMIC pressure must be such as to allow the sprinklers to function as they are designed Practical DIY installation Get out into the garden and transform your plan into a fully functional irrigation system 1 supply pipe The solenoid valves unit contains the individual valves required to open and close each circuit The supply line to which the valves are connected is subject to the entire static pressure when the circuit is closed and it must therefore be composed of an absolutely water tight metal pipe As a general rule the diameter of the pipe used to connect the valves unit to the utility

    also in terms of water consumption To achieve this result the irrigation system must be designed in order to minimise leaks at the water source in the distribution system and at the points of delivery Before reaching plant roots water tends to run over the surface where it evaporates or it simply fails to reach the required areas in the soil That s why Claber research is aimed at optimizing irrigation efficiency meaning the ratio between the quantity of water supplied and the quantity effectively used by plants The watering systems that provide the highest efficiency levels are spray irrigation and drip irrigation This latter system was created in the 1970s out of the desire to combine lower consumption with higher crop yields in agriculture on difficult soils and in difficult climates currently the water saving available using a drip irrigation system can be up to 40 In addition to making home irrigation far more convenient electronic programming is a significant aid in reducing consumption All that is needed is a battery powered timer to determine the exact quantity of water and to dispense it at the ideal time of day after sunset and at dawn thus minimizing wastage through evaporation All this is available with a small outlay and with the maximum level of reliability versatility and ease of use thanks to Claber Claber eco tips AVOID THE HOTTEST TIMES OF DAY Especially in summer the garden should ideally be watered at dawn or after sunset to minimise losses caused by evaporation MOW THE LAWN REGULARLY Apart from being more attractive a well mown lawn requires less water if the blades of grass are too long they tend to retain droplets of natural rainfall or artificial irrigation water before they filter down to the roots FEEL THE SOIL The quantity of water required varies depending on whether the soil is sandy or clayey That s why it s advisable to check that the soil has the correct humidity level without useless and harmful pooling Claber timers help you to choose the ideal irrigation program for all types of soil USE THE RAIN The water that falls from clouds is a gift of nature we need to learn how to avoid wasting it Claber has developed a Rain Sensor that suspends the irrigation program in the case of sufficient natural precipitation to ensure optimal irrigation and re activates it once the weather becomes dry and sunny again WATER ONLY WHERE NECESSARY A jet of water that wets the patio surface or the road means a lot of water gets wasted without any benefit for the plants Claber sprinklers both static and adjustable make it possible to establish the exact target area wetting it with the utmost uniformity TRUST IN CLABER S EXPERIENCE A system designed in a precise and competent manner able to fully exploit the water pressure and water flow rate is the key factor for efficient irrigation offering reliable water savings and a particularly lush and healthy garden

    is operating Dynamic pressure is always lower than static pressure because of the flow resistance caused by surface friction inside the water hose the narrower and longer the hose the greater the flow resistance You should know the dynamic pressure of your water system as it should be sufficient to ensure proper operation of watering devices Refer to the table in the Claber guide to calculate your water pressure quickly and easily How can I install an underground irrigation system myself Thanks to the range of Claber products anyone can make their own underground irrigation system with the help of two special tools the Claber Irrigation Guide containing all necessary information and advice and the Claber Planning Service available from your nearest Claber dealer which can draw up a customised project All the tools you need are a set of stakes and some string to mark out the route of the circuit tubes on the lawn a spade to dig the trenches and a saw to cut the tubes to the required lengths The Claber underground irrigation range includes a comprehensive selection of compression connectors designed for watertight connection of tubes without the need for special tools or materials in fact all other components of the system from the sprinklers to the final drainage plug can be simply screwed on What s the best system for watering a small garden Claber has developed a solution that is specially designed for gardens between 50 and 200 m2 the Colibrì System No need to dig all you have to do is mark out the trench by levering the spade back and forth in the earth Virtually no effort is required and no damage is done to the lawn And there s no need for special electrical or water connections either just a battery powered Claber timer connected directly to the tap to assure even waste free watering of your garden by special Colibrì micro sprinklers What do I do if mains water pressure is too high To solve this problem install a pressure reducer stabiliser on the tap supplying the system to ensure optimal pressure to the sprinkler type used drippers bubblers micro sprinklers etc Can I use an Aquadue Duplo two way timer with two different irrigation systems for example a drip system and an underground one Of course Aquadue Duplo is designed to allow totally customised control of watering times and quantity of both systems Can I use Colibrì micro sprinklers and Claber pop ups on the same line It s not recommended because these two systems have different types of operating modes and water requirements The same goes for stationary sprinklers and soaker hoses if they were installed on the same line some parts of the garden would receive too much water other parts not enough The best solution is to set up different circuits each for a particular type of irrigation system Is it true that irrigation systems should have a ring configuration A closed circuit configuration is
