2016 TL Irrigation Seminar: Auditing: Soil Moisture vs. Catch Cans

Presented by Brian Vinchesi, CIC, CID, CGIA, CLIA, CLIM, CLWM

Catch can audits measure sprinkler performance, while using a portable soil moisture sensor will measure the effectiveness of the irrigation. Both methods are valid and help correlate sprinkler performance with soil moisture uniformity that affects irrigation scheduling and ultimately the appearance of the turfgrass.

Advanced Landscape Irrigation Design & Management, 2nd Edition

This book provides an in-depth analysis of water distribution. Learn how water comes out of a nozzle and how to achieve the highest distribution uniformity using pressure, spacing, hydraulics and equipment selection to impact the overall result. This resource for intermediate to advanced designers outlines how the principles of uniformity (DU, CU and SC) and efficiency should influence the irrigation design process, with special emphasis on water conservation.

ITRC: Distribution Uniformity & Precipitation Rate

Intermediate | Landscape (1.5 CEUs)

Online course from the Irrigation Training & Research Center.

Two of the most important concepts in landscape irrigation are distribution uniformity and precipitation rate. DU refers to how evenly water is applied to a landscape. DU is used to measure the performance of an existing irrigation system and is determined through a catch can test. Precipitation rate identifies the rate at which irrigation water reaches the ground surface, and is affected by sprinkler flow rate and area of coverage. PR is an important value that is used in both system design and irrigation scheduling. This class does not qualify for TCEQ. This class does count for 1.5 New Jersey CECs/WC and 1.5 North Carolina CEs.

Sprinkler Irrigation Uniformity Instructor Kit

The underlying objective behind all sprinkler decisions is to provide a uniform application of water. The purpose of this workbook is to provide an understanding of what uniformity is and how some factors may affect it. Idealized sprinkler profiles are used to simplify the lesson. Acknowledging that many factors influence uniformity, spacing is used to demonstrate changes in uniformity.

Sprinkler Spacing Instructor Kit

A key step in the design of any sprinkler system is deciding where to place the sprinklers. This requires understanding the underlying objective behind all sprinkler spacing decisions: providing a uniform application of water. Uniformity of application relates to sprinkler spacing through the concept of overlap. Learn which factors to consider and how to lay out a sprinkler system for the best results.
