Save Money with Irrigation System Evaluations
All irrigation systems regardless of what type of system it is or how old have the potential to slowly eat into your profits.
Some of the key reasons are Pumps not matched to the application system or to the required duty use more energy when operated out of there best efficiency point, when this is the case, more often then not the application system will suffer from a lack of pressure and flow.
All irrigation application systems have an optimum design pressure and flow to give best Distribution Uniformity and this can be compromised when Pumps are not matched to the required duty. The effects are high pumping costs, higher water use and lower yields due to low Distribution Uniformity and higher water losses through filtration system back flushing more often due to the increased volume of water being pumped. Higher losses of nutrients through poor Distribution Uniformity cause water quality problems that cost money to adjust and not good for the environment. It accelerates the losses in profits when nutrients are injected via Fertigation into these irrigation systems.Save money with irrigation system evaluations
