A well designed irrigation system is as critical for having a healthy landscape and for conservation of water during the Summer months in Texas.

How does an in-ground irrigation system work?

Most commercial and residential irrigation systems are “in ground” systems. This means that the systems are installed and buried under ground. All pipes, sprinklers, emitters and drippers, and irrigation valves are hidden so it makes for a nice clean landscape design.

Controllers – Zones – Valves

Most irrigation systems are divided into zones. A zone is a single irrigation valve and one or a group of drippers, or sprinklers that are connected by pipes or tubes.

Irrigation systems are divided into zones because there is usually not enough pressure and available flow to run sprinklers for an entire yard or sports field at once. Each zone has a solenoid valve on it that is controlled via wire by an irrigation controller. The irrigation controller is either a mechanical or electrical device that signals a zone to turn on at a specific time and keeps it on for a specified amount of time.

Smart Controllers

“Smart Controller” is the modern term for a controller that is capable of adjusting the watering time by itself in response to current environmental conditions, such as our regular drought conditions during the Summer in Caddo Mills Texas.

The smart controller determines current conditions by means of historic weather data for the local area, a soil moisture sensor that monitors water potential or water content, rain sensor, or in more sophisticated systems satellite feed weather station, or a combination of these.

When a zone comes on, the water flows through the lateral lines and ultimately ends up at the irrigation emitter (drip) or sprinkler heads. Many sprinklers have pipe thread inlets on the bottom of them which allows a fitting and the pipe to be attached to them. The sprinklers are usually installed with the top of the head flush with the ground surface. When the water is pressurized, the head will pop up out of the ground and water the desired area until the valve closes and shuts off that zone. Once there is no more water pressure in the lateral line, the sprinkler head will retract back into the ground. Emitters are generally laid on the soil surface or buried a few inches to reduce evaporation losses.

Common Problems With Irrigation Systems

Underirrigation, or irrigation giving only just enough water for the plant, like in drip line irrigation, can give poor soil salinity control which leads to increased soil salinity with consequent build up of toxic salts on soil surface in areas with high evaporation.

Over irrigation because of poor distribution uniformity or management wastes water, chemicals, and may lead to water pollution.

Deep drainage from over-irrigation could cause rising water tables which in some instances will lead to problems of irrigation salinity requiring watertable control by some form of subsurface land drainage.
