Glasshouse watering systems are designed to provide overhead irrigation to glasshouses in nurseries, market gardens and garden centres. Overhead spray lines produce a fine and even mist spray over the entire area of the glasshouse, watering everything inside with a gentle rain-like spray.
One or two watering lines are used, depending on the width of the glasshouse. Single line irrigation systems use a spray line strapped to the centre line of the glasshouse. Twin line systems use metal straining wire to suspend the PVC irrigation line from. The pipe is pre-drilled to accept sprinklers.
Before the nozzle is a drip-stop valve, which shuts when the watering finishes, ensuring the watering lines are kept full of water for instant start-up. The highly uniform sprinkler nozzles use much, much less water than the old Dutch-pin nozzles and provide watering levels similar to natural rainfall. Computer design ensures high coefficients of uniformity throughout the tunnel.
Glasshouse Watering Systems can be automated if required, allowing the irrigation to be done early in the morning when evaporation rates are low and staff have not arrived on site.
