The last year I devised a simple system to irrigate without waste and specifically in the area that needed it with the system for irrigation of tomato that I presented in my instructable; that system had many advantages why did waste very little water.
However, one disadvantage was obvious: the water that ran the tube at high speed to go to ground, in a short time he dug a small hole that put her bare also the roots of the plant and whether or not I was going to call promptly loam Commons the plant itself was in danger.
Step 1: The Components
So I modified the old system, making it an inexpensive drip system to prevent the erosion of the soil near the roots.
This was possible with a simple trick that consisted in creating a system of brake for the exit of the water.
This system allows a triple advantage:
1) water drops slowly and not dig the ground (as I said before),
2) filling the bottle you can see with your own eyes how much water you actually make the plant without waste due to classical thought: "still a little, maybe I paid too little"
3)the slow descent of the water promotes a better absorption of soil by avoiding the "flood"
Step 2: The Construction
Finally pour over to cotton, a certain amount of stones and even a bit of sand if we.
The game is done!
As you can see in the movie, the water will fall on the ground very slowly, with a "rain" giving time to soak up the water surface without disperse as happens when we water our plants.
Step 3: The Test
I think you can add additional cotton to slow down the water.
For the installation on field cultivated some simple indications are present in my previous instructable entitled: "Easy system to irrigate tomatoes"
In the next step will show the application on field cultivated this realization.
Step 4: Cultivated Field
the comfort of the vegetables to pouring water directly into containers using for example a narrow Jet gun joined greater delicacy that has water when it reaches the terrain favoring an increased absorption.
Meanwhile greet all thanking for attention and hoping to have, with my simple
realization (perhaps trivial?, I think not), helped someone.Good instructables all ... bye!
