Installation of PVC pipe and fittings for irrigation process


PVC pipe and fittings is mainly used for irrigation purposes. It is made from two common chemicals named as chlorine and alkaline. PVC pipe and fittings is manufactured using common salt and alkaline. PVC pipe price is very expensive to manufacture because it contains exotic chemicals and it must be used in its creation quality raw material. Due to their endurance and durability against rough conditions, it is highly demand in markets. The PVC pipe and fittings find many applications in various sectors.

 Some process involved in irrigation of PVC pipe and fittings are given as follows:

  • PVC pipe and fittings play a crucial role in a vast range of applications in various materials. PVC piping systems that can be installed on slip lined, buried, trenchless, floating, surface and submerged. The PVC pipe and fittings can also be used for transporting fluids that include conveying, lifting, transporting, distributing of trapped water, corrosive gases, slurries, cables, sand and so on.
  • In piping systems, you have some systems available from water to gas distribution, micro to lift irrigation, hand pumps to home service connections, chemical to cable conveyance, etc. This unique range of all products is produced by good quality and services.

Layout plan:

To determine any potential obstacles such as trees, that may block the sprinkler patterns and curves in the landscape design that requires your special attention. First, you have to carefully measure the boundary properties and record the numbers one by one in the layout diagram. Use a graph sheet for layout plan and allow the irrigation system to be drawn on your scale and it accurately plotted. Just draw in the street, sidewalk, home and landscape elements like trees, flowerbeds, etc.

Three steps to be followed for the best irrigation practices:

  1. Picking out the best irrigation system
  2. To learn about the installation materials
  3. Creating mock-up

Step 1: picking the best irrigation system

Once the boundary property is the layout on your paper, then you have to evaluate the system components and sprinkler heads available to determine the best way to pull it all together. Before starting this process, you have to learn all the basic elements and respective features in an irrigation system. Polyethylene pipe is used for most of the irrigation systems. Its features are flexibility, durability, and lightweight. Polyethylene pipe has a rigid composition and lacking flexibility which makes you feel difficulty in work with, so for curves and corner applications, you can use pliable material like poly.

Step 2: To learn about the installation materials

The next step is to learn about the basic elements used for the typical system assembly process. All these components are molded from polyethylene only. Fitting is mainly used to connect the two pipes at a certain point and a poly plug should be used at the end of the pipe to stop water at a designated area. T- Coupler is designed to join three pipes together at an intersection point. To control the release of water into the pipes, electronic valves are used.

Step 3: Creating mock-up

To illustrate how all the valves are working in the pipes, you have to create a T- formation section of mock-up and also connect with a T-coupler fitting. A programmed clock will be wired to the valves system with pre-set times. Once it is signaled by the clock, each valve will open to let the water to its corresponding zones.

Due to the flexibility and versatility PVC pipe and fittings can be used in a variety of applications. Make use of the above-explained layout and installation concept and you can try it on your own.
