DIY irrigation system

  1. Does anybody have any good guides / videos that you have used to build an irrigaiton system for soil growing?

    My conditions make it extremely hard for me to water properly, so having an irrigation system to water for me would be amazing.
  2. i'd like to know as well. I do a scrog that gets in the way and makes it hard to access my plants.
  3. Go to your local hardware store look thru irrigation info ..or just get a mess of 1/2" or 1/4" black rubber hose and go to work

  4. Drip irrigation would be good for you. Vostok has it right get some 1/4 inch black piping at home depot. Its really cheap. Then buy some cheap drippers and some drip line steaks to hold the dripper in place. Hook it up to a pump or your local water supply via a piece of 1/2 irrigation line and an adapter. I used to use this and it works great. Drippers do clog with dried ferts, but its no big deal
  5. I have used this home irrigation in the past,come in a kit, which soon becomes a very complicated mechanoo set after a couple of months, best answer to EXTEND your current watering can, spout, by sticking an extension tube on the end, and after a "J",...watering plants can be real fun....

    note I've done this for the last 4 years's fun

  6. one thing I learned the hard way

    black tubing = $1 a foot

    pvc = $1 for 10 feet

    pvc also makes perfect trellis framing...and don't cut it with a saw, use one of these
