Water Source Connection
Now that we have our layout designed we can start to put together the components for your pumpkin watering system. As with most all drip irrigation systems the water source connection is comprised of a shut off (manual or automated), a filter, and pressure regulator. The filter and pressure regulator are always located downstream of the shut off. For our pumpkin irrigation example we have 2 zones and will therefore need two drip zones. Below is a sample illustration followed by a parts list.
We can now look at the parts list required for this water source connection. There are many product options when choosing a water source connection assembly but many times it comes down to using pipe thread or hose thread components. Both get the job done however pipe thread connections tend to be more duable than hose thread connections. Below we have illustrated a few options for our example.
We will now move on to the drip line connnections for our sample pumpkin irrigation system.
