Aquifer Farmer Kits
The Aquifer is the Solution to Drip Tape Problems
Drip waters both the surface of your soil and the root zone unevenly. This creates serious problems with germination and growth.
Aquifers water evenly every time.
Drip can take all day to saturate an entire bed. Since it is so uneven, drip may never completely irrigate your soil.
Aquifers completely water a bed in 10 to 15 minutes depending on your plumbing and water source.
Drip needs to be stored for the winter. Drip is fragile and needs to be repaired constantly. Drip is always in the way of culitivation.
Aquifers can stay in the field year round and require no maintenance and are out of the way.
No Special Tools Required
Many systems require a punch tool which are difficult to use and prone to error and leaks. Powerloc fittings do not need tools and they are watertight. You need only a knife or scissor to cut the mainline. You will be irrigating in minutes.
the best sprinkler head
Wobblers are the best sprinkler head available as they operate well in a large pressure range and water evenly every time with an adequate water source
Each sprinkler head (Senniger Xcel Wobbler with a gray #9 9/64" nozzle) specifications are as follows;
Pressure - Flow (gpm) - Diameter at 1.5 ft
10 psi - 1.815 - 44
15 psi - 2.2 - 47
20 psi - 2.54 - 50.5
25 psi - 2.84 - 52.5
Max Pressure is 85 psi though flow and spray diameter will cap at 2.8 gpm and 52 ft for each wobbler. No pressure regulator is needed. Expect to need 2.5gpm of flow for each wobbler.
Don't Be Stuck Short
With most systems, you are stuck with one short height. The aquifer rising doubles the height of your sprinkler stand.
Easy To Drain
Out of the Way
You can still cultivate your paths and more importantly walk down your paths. The Aquifer System takes up very little space.
Stainless Steel Stepping Stake
Each stand includes a stainless steel stake which can be pushed down to any depth and will hold your sprinkler stands firm. They are also easy to install and remove.
Heavy Duty Pipe
The pipe is heavy duty that will take a beating from tools year after year and will not leak. Also, there are no pvc parts which get brittle and crack in sunlight.
