In the simplest terms, I’m looking to bring water out of my 40 gallon reservoir, pushing from an EcoPlus 1267 pump and then splitting into 6 tables/sections of the room. From there we’ll split again into 6 terminations for individual plants.
Here’s my thoughts but could anyone offer some advice or links to what hose/connections/terminations to buy?? Or maybe a kit?
We already have this EcoPlus 1267 GPH Submersible Water Pump. 5.95psi. Amazon.com
You need to create an outer loop , so that every plant has equal pressure and volume of water flow…
Kind of like if you were plumbing in body sprays in a shower…
I will draw you up something tomorrow if you want that will explain what I’m saying…
This will reduce cost by not having a bunch of different valves at each plant sight and will make sure that every plant gets the same amount of water… @zyzyx
Peachfuzz is completely correct; shorter runs will put out more water than longer runs. But if you’re watering to runoff, it’s probably not a huge concern. And my rain bird emitters can be dialed anywhere from open to closed so you shouldn’t have a problem getting the system close.
You might have an challenge going from the pump barb to PVC. I’d step down to a smaller barb if the pump has one and then run that into the tent.
Sorta an aside, but if you water thoroughly and get say 25% runoff, you can pH the water in and the runoff. That’s the method I’m most familiar with to track soil pH. I don’t mean to derail the thread, and others are probably better able to guide you through pH measurement in soil.
Rain Bird has 6-line splitters on Amazon. I’d start there and head to a specialized plumbing supply house to look for pvc fittings and poly barbs. Personally I’m a fan of ABS instead of PVC, but you’re going to be limited to what is common in your area.
