Determine the source of the water intake ↑

Before you buy a pump and accessories for watering the garden, you must decide where you will mainly draw water.The most popular option - from tanks, basins and cubic containers, placed under the gutters of buildings on the site.In them during the rainy season, you can collect a large amount of fluid, which is great for watering.Vegetable crops do not need a crystal-clear water.The main thing that it was warm and defend.So if your area is not polluting factory emissions, the rain water can be safely used for a vegetable garden and flower beds.To carry out such a source of irrigation, will need a pump that is designed to pump liquids from drums and other containers.

This same type of unit can recommend cottagers available on site well or a borehole.After all, no one experienced the owner will not just water the plants raised from the depth of the water, because the temperature is too cold.Plants experiencing cold shock and start to hurt (root rot).So first well water rises to the top, filled into barrels, allowed to warm, and then - the beds watered.So that the pump barrel is quite useful in this case.

If you pick up the unit for women's hands that have small skills in technology, the drum pumps are an ideal option.Their design is simple, elementary mounted and is suitable for any form of containers with a maximum depth of 1.2 meters.

Due to low weight (up to 4 kg), this unit can be dragged around the dacha tirelessly.Drum pumps run almost silently, while irrigation can be directly into the barrel to add liquid fertilizer.They do not affect the operation of the system.

How is drum pumps ↑

Before you start watering the unit is fixed to the edge of the barrel, connect the power cord to the power supply, put on the body of the desired pressure with the help ofpressure regulator and start watering.To protect from falling debris inside the pump there is a filter element.

How to choose the pump capacity ↑

systems are available with different levels of power.It is necessary to read instructions on what area of ​​simultaneous irrigation designed a specific model, that is,how much it will pump an hour of water.If the site is large, it makes sense to invest in a two-step mechanism.It delivers higher performance than single-stage models, and will last longer.

water from the well, how best to use the pump ↑

If you water supplies small well or clean the pond (swimming pool, river), nearby, you should get a system of surface type.This water pump raises the liquid with a ten-meter depth.His power is enough to standing in place, pour area with a radius of up to 40-50 m (depending on capacity).

Surface pumps pumped water only, so make sure that the hose is not in the river sank to the bottom

The principle of surface unit ↑

unit itself is placed at the source of the water intake.In a well or water inlet hose is lowered special connected to the pump, or a metal pipe.A second tube extends from the pump and ejects water on the surface.

Important!Do not buy these systems for water intake hoses made of rubber, because their walls at a pressure difference begin to shrink, not letting the liquid out.As such hoses water will go up in spurts, and even did not pass through the wall peredavlennye.

Features of operation of a surface pump ↑

for the performance of the pump is put on a flat area, because it vibrates.Also at work gives a lot of noise, which can be reduced if the unit is placed under the rubber mat.

To protect the body from the rain, will either have to hide it in the room after the application or to build on it a protective box.In winter, the system dismantled and hidden in a room with a temperature above zero.

Note that the water raised from the well will be cold.Its not all plants survive.

downhole pump and equipment: garden irrigation water depths ↑

If the area drilled, the only way to raise the water from it is a submersible pump.It is fully lowered into the water-bearing pole and is there permanently.A water supply starts only after switching to the network.When selecting these systems should take into account the depth at which the water is you, because different models raise it to a limited height.Some of them - up to 40 meters, others - up to 60, the third - to 80.

desirable to entrust the installation of a specialist.He must dismantle the pump for the winter.

sources with highly contaminated water: require drainage pumps ↑

If the country do not have a well or wells, but next to a pond, swamp ormuddy pond, the water supplied to the garden can be a special pump that is designed for pumping highly contaminated fluid.Such systems are called drainage, because they were created to address the consequences of floods that flooded basements, cesspools and so forth. The drainage pumps have a system of filtering and grinding particulate, so that no dirt or sand mechanism not terrible.For the garden is enough to buy a model designed for pumping cold liquids.

Drainage units are not afraid to siltation, and all the contents from the bottom of the pond, they will be served in the garden in the ground form.So your plants will provide additional fertilizer.

When choosing a power drain pump, consider the distance from the reservoir up to the beds, because the longer the cord, the greater the pressure loss

If the natural source is too polluted large solids, you should think about buying fecal pump.It is a special chopper that cuts any solid waste, falling through the hose into the mechanism.With this pump you will not be afraid that the system is clogged and fail.What
