Water Pump Stations for Home Irrigation

Water pump stations are being used by more homeowners for their lawn irrigation.

If you are planning an irrigation system for your home lawn and garden and you have access to a pond, lake or stream, you may want to consider having a water pump station installed. If you have a viable water source on your property, small, pre-packaged pump stations designed for residential use are readily available.

These scaled-down pump stations can supply water to your irrigation system for pennies on the dollar compared to buying water from your local water purveyor. In addition to being more cost effective, they are also more eco-friendly because you are not using water that has had to go through the treatment process.

Contact a professional irrigation specialist to determine the best system for your particular needs. There are many factors that need to be taken into consideration including local permitting and code requirements.

Sewer Pump Stations – The Value They Bring to Your Community

Sewer pump stations in your community help keep the water flowing clean and healthy.

sewer pump stationsSewer pump stations play a necessary role in the cleaning of our country’s water supply. Without these stations we would not have enough fresh water to meet our needs. Our clean water supply is rapidly depleting and the need for treatment plants and pump stations is vital to our survival.

When the wastewater is flushed from your home it is moved through a series of underground pipes and carried into the treatment plant where it will go through a process to remove the sewage and clean and purify the water.

During the solids separation and purification process the water is transferred throughout the treatment plant as it is being processed. Once the treatment process is finished, it is released back into the lakes and bodies of water that supply your community with water.
Purifying wastewater for use in the community is vital for providing us with clean water and without the pump stations it would not be possible. Without this process we would quickly run out of fresh, clean water to use.

Most people take clean, fresh water for granted. We never give a thought to all that goes into making it happen. Here are some interesting and common questions you might have about sewage pump stations:

What is a sewage pump station? A sewage pump station pumps wastewater through a series of underground pipes into the sewage treatment plants where the waste is removed and the water is cleaned and purified. Once the purification process is complete, pump stations are used to discharge the water back into the community for reuse.

What is remote monitoring? Remote monitoring is the system that is used to monitor the conditions at the treatment facility. The system sends reports back to the operator through the internet with water pressure, basin levels, and temperature readings as well as other important statistics to warn of any potential problems.

Where does the processed water go? Once the wastewater is cleaned and purified it is pumped back into our lakes, rivers and other bodies of water to be released back into the community.

Drip Irrigation Products can Help You Become More Water Efficient

Drip irrigation products mean no more lugging hoses all over your yard.

If you’re tired of dragging a heavy sprinkler hose from one area of your lawn to another day after day, it may be time to consider installing an irrigation system. With our natural resources being depleted at alarming levels, you may want to consider becoming more water efficient and using a watering system that conserves water.

Conventional lawn sprinkler systems can be inefficient and waste water. The performance and efficiency of lawn sprinkler systems can be greatly improved by the use of “smart controllers”. Smart controllers utilize a weather station to monitor conditions and adjust the system run-time as needed. Systems with smart controller can reduce their water usage by 30-50%.

When it comes to the landscape, drip irrigation is the way to go. Drip irrigation applies water near the root zone at a slow rate which results in less runoff and less evaporation. Drip irrigation is ideal for foundation plantings around your home. The lower application rate prevents problems resulting from too much water around the foundation, such as wet crawl spaces, damp basements, and termites.

How to Install Garden Drip Systems This Spring for Healthy and Vibrant Plants

Garden drip systems installed in your home garden can save you time and money.

installing garden drip systemInstalling a garden drip system for your home garden is an excellent way to provide the water needed for healthy and vibrant plants this spring. Drip systems feed the water directly to the root system to provide the most effective watering. Here is a quick guide on how to install your system.

  • Determine your garden layout by counting the number of rows and measuring the length of each row. There are several pre-assembled kits available, knowing the size of your garden will help you select the right one.
  • Lay the drip tubing (or drip tape) down each row alongside the plants. This line is called the lateral and it connects to another tube that is perpendicular to the rows. This perpendicular line is called the header.
  • A pressure regulator and wye filter are connected to the header. These devices control the pressure and remove small particles and debris that can clog the small drip emitter orifices.
  • Once everything is installed you can connect the header to a garden hose and you are ready to go.
  • Garden drip systems can be made even more efficient by installing a garden hose timer and fertilizer injection system.

A drip system can save you precious time and help you conserve water. Before you install your system, check with the professionals at W.P. Law, Inc. for complete details about which irrigation system is best for your garden. You may decide you’d rather leave installation to the pros – and we can help with that, too.

Drip Irrigation – Is This the Best Choice for You?

Drip irrigation is the perfect irrigation method to help you conserve water and direct the water where it is needed.

best drip irrigation choiceIf you have a garden and are wondering what is the best irrigation method to use, consider drip irrigation. Using the right irrigation system for your specific needs will help you conserve water, save money and get the water exactly where it is needed, the root zone.

It seems that year after year we are under strict water restrictions because of drought conditions. To do your part in water conservation, use the irrigation system that can help you conserve water and give your garden the water it needs where it is needed most.

Traditional sprinkler systems are much less efficient because a lot of the water is lost due to evaporation and runoff. Wind also affects traditional sprinkler systems by blowing the water where it isn’t needed leaving some areas without the appropriate amount of water. Delivering the water directly to the root zone is the most efficient way to water.

To find out whether a drip irrigation system is the best choice for your irrigation needs, let the experts at W.P. Law, Inc. advise you on what will work best.
