A fouled system must be cleaned and sanitized before any preventative maintenance can begin. All organic and/or inorganic deposits must be removed throughout the irrigation system during the remediation process.
This critical first step will improve system efficiency immediately, provide the platform for a successful preventative maintenance program and maximize crop yields.
Irrigation line treatment for fouled systems can include a shock cleaning specifically designed to removed entrenched contaminates. There are many types of system fouling that can occur:
Distribution Uniformity (DU) measures how evenly irrigation water, and in many instances, chemicals are applied through an irrigation system onto a field.
While a DU of 100 would be ideal, economic considerations make this unattainable. A target DU of 92 on a drip irrigation system is accepted as an excellent design.
While many irrigation systems are designed with a DU above 90, most systems operating for even short periods will typically see their DU numbers drop below 80. The main factor causing this dramatic reduction is emission device plugging.
A DU below 75 directly leads to more water and chemical use and could result in a lesser crop.
Our services keep you at the high end of distribution uniformity.
