Garden Irrigation Systems - So Much Choice and Which Irrigation System Should I Be Using?


Over the years we have expanded our product range from a few items to the extensive range available today, concentrating on keeping it simple and thereby making it easier for the DIY enthusiast.


If you are uncertain what equipment you require, then simply send us a plan of your garden and we'll work out what you need, it really couldn't be any easier.  It does not have to be an elaborate plan; a simple hand drawn sketch will suffice showing dimensions and areas to be irrigated.  Remember to highlight where the incoming mains is and the nearest electrical sockets.  We will then design an irrigation system that will meet with your irrigation needs.  


Firstly it is vitally important to establish that the water pressure on site is neither too low, nor too high for the irrigation system to function correctly.  You can visit a local DIY store and purchase a mains water pressure test gauge, or alternatively read our guide on how to establish what water pressure you have on site.  We can then supply the necessary fittings to either decrease or increase the water pressure.
