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.

Irrigated Soils Student Workbook

Water is essential for plant growth, and almost all of it comes through the soil. This course introduces students to soil classification, web based soils resources and important soil properties as they relate to irrigation. They will learn about how water is retained in the soil, how the plant extracts it, how we measure water in the soil, and how salts affect available water. They will also be introduced to water movement in layered soils.

Irrigation System Design Approaches to Minimize Surge Pressure

This basic hydraulics course will teach pipe sizing using the velocity limit technique. This sets the speed limit of water in PVC pipes at 5 feet per second. This serves a majority of irrigation system designs very well. But there are many common situations where a 5 fps velocity limit is too high and can accellerate piping system failuers and other hydraulic problems. This discussion takes the irrigation designer through the cause and effect of the velocity of the water in the pipe and valve sizing in terms of the cyclical forces that affect the operational costs and sprinkler performance.

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.
