To install and use Sumisansui irrigation systems on farms, a design has to be done. It is typical for a trained irrigation engineer to design the Sumisansui irrigation system. Software like Computer Aided Design (CAD) software may be used for the irrigation design. IRRICAD is also a popular irrigation design software that can be used.
Steps to take to design a Sumisansui irrigation system
To design a Sumisansui irrigation system, the following steps has to be followed:
Ascertain the Water Source
All irrigation systems need a source of water. To design a Sumisansui irrigation system, you need to determine the source of water. Is the source of water a borehole, river, dam or well? You also need to determine the distance of the source of water to the farmland where the Sumisansui irrigation system will be installed.
Ascertain the Water Requirement
After determining the source of water, the next step in the design of a Sumisansui irrigation system is to calculate your water requirement. Every plant has a daily water requirement. The total water requirement of a plant is determined by the type of plant, climate, type of soil and the stage of growth of the plant.
Do the Actual Design
After determining the source of water and the water requirement, the next step is to draw a sketch. The sketch will show the land area, land size, where the Sumisansui laterals will be installed, the distance between the Sumisansui tape laterals, where the sub-mains will be installed and the number of Sumisansui irrigation accessories needed.
Get the Sumisansui Irrigation Components
After the design, you will need to choose and buy the Sumisansui irrigation components needed for the installation of the Sumisansui irrigation system. The components will include Sumisansui hoses or spray tubes, lay flat hoses, connectors, end plugs, joiners, venturi injector for Fertigation, valves and hold-down stakes etc.
Install the Sumisansui Irrigation System
After getting the Sumisansui irrigation components, the next step is to install the Sumisansui irrigation system. For small farms and gardens, the owner can install themselves. Most irrigation sellers provide installation instructions which can be easily followed.
For large farms, you may need an expert to install the Sumisansui irrigation system.
Test the Sumisansui Irrigation System
After installing the Sumisansui irrigation system, you will need to test it. You need to pressurize the Sumisansui irrigation tapes and lines by pumping water into them. Check if the Sumisansui emitters are emitting water as expected.
What is Sumisansui Irrigation?
The Sumisansui irrigation system is an irrigation system that consists of sprinkler type hoses used for the spraying of droplets of water to plants. Sumisansui irrigation system is a type of spray tube irrigation system.
The main components of the Sumisansui irrigation system are rain hoses, connectors, end plugs, submains, lay flat hoses, PVC pipes, source of water, pumps and venturi injector etc.
The Sumisansui hoses can work with a low water pressure. This irrigation system will spray water even if the water pressure is as low as 0.8 bar.
The Sumisansui hose is made of polythene with laser made perforations or holes. The laser made holes on the Sumisansui hose serves as the emitters for the sprinkling of droplets of water to plants. Sumisansui hoses are usually UV resistant.
