Note: PVC drip systems don’t deal well with big changes in slope in a garden. Slopes cause uneven water pressure in the pipes and you will have some areas getting too much water and others not enough. So if your garden is on a hillside or drops more than 2 or 3 inches over 50 feet you may want to consider a different watering option.
- This course includes simple instructions on building a PVC drip irrigation system, perfect for any experience level of gardener.
- Before you start this project you should have the following tools:
- A saw or PVC pipe cutter.
- An electric drill.
- A 3/32 drill bit and a 5/32 drill bit
- You will also need a scale drawing of your garden so that you can plan out your drip system to determine how much PVC pipe you will need and what hardware.
- If you are planning on a mainline distribution system you will also need a small can of PVC glue.
- You will need to decide if you are going to make your system out of 1/2 inch pipe or 3/4 inch pipe. You will need to buy the PVC pipe and all the necessary hardware.
