    Hi All!
    I’d like to offer you an irrigation tube, which is to be digged under the plant/grass into soil (20 cm). Tube will ‘sweaten’ the water through porous surface and feed water to root system. Absolutely easy and water saving!!
    Please feel free to contact me for support!

    Has anyone designed a commercial or residential irriation system with HTPE pipe?

  • Hi all,
    I am currently working on a landscape design for a parking lot in an arid area. Which is the best irrigation sytem to use, taking note that the island is 2metres wide?Where can i get more information on irrigation design?

  • Hi All,
    A little Bio. for your consumption. I started irrigation design in 2001 in Arizona. Worked with a L. A. in Arizona, who exclusively went after IRRIG. projects. He did very well, However I wanted to grow to other areas and moved on. Jump to the present, In the last office I worked in (March 2009), My billable hours for Irrigation Design was…[Read more]

    Hello fellow irrigation designers! I am taking the Certified Landscape irrigation Auditor Exam in the beginning of October and was wondering if anyone has the 2007 manual? Let me know if you would be willing to part with it! Thanks 🙂

    Rob-

    We use Land FX; which it sounds like the same setup as Raincad. It is extremely simple to pick up on and their support is like no other. We have been using it for almost 5 years now without one complaint. I would give them a call and talk to their rep if you are interested.

    Does anyone here have experience with Leit solar controllers? Any issues with long wire runs, durability, etc?

    Thanks in advance

    Rob,

    There are a lot of good softwares out there, selection really depends on your situation and needs. I would “demo’ as many softwares as possible to see which one fits your office best.

    For Autocad, Raincad for Autocad works well. It runs in Autocad as a toolbar, similar to Express Tools. You still have the full function of autocad while…[Read more]

    I was able to find some irrigation training and I am more confident now. However, I am looking to purchase irrigation design software. What are the best choices out there? Land F/X? IrriCalc? RainCAD? Others?

  • Rob Rosner posted an update in the group Group logo of Irrigation DesignIrrigation Design 10 years, 3 months ago

    I want to sharpen my irrigation skills and train one of my coworkers. Are there any free online tutorials with practice problems that we could download? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Hi Doug,

    Check out the California Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance, at http://www.owue.water.ca.gov/. It is in the process of final revision and is set to go into effect January 2010. It outlines the services and responsibilities of CIDs.

    The CID process is pretty involved with classes and tests and can take awhile to get certified. If…[Read more]

    Doug,
    Yes there is merit. I run a design build firm that does some bid build as well. Some of the irrigation ‘designs’ that come out of some other offices that we bid on don’t follow simple irrigation principles and spec antiquated equipment.
    The IA certification (CID) is a good one. I became certified a few years ago. I am always up to date with…[Read more]

  • Doug Godfrey posted an update in the group Group logo of Irrigation DesignIrrigation Design 10 years, 4 months ago

    Hey everyone. I’d like to get your opinion. Does anyone see any merit in becoming certified in irrigation design? The IA offers courses and testing in irrigation design that we as landscape architects would be eligible to take. While there is a great irrigation knowledge base at my office, I feel like so much has changed over the years that I need…[Read more]

    Steve,
    I just so happen to be installing a RainMaster Oasis, with 15 controllers and a Weather Center II, and will be completing installation of the controls this week. All seems to be going well with installation and configuration.

    Let me know if you need any additional information. I can update you when system is up and running.

    Regards,
    Paul

    Hello,
    Has anyone spec’d or installed the Rainmaster Weather Center II on-site weather station? It looks like this is a weather station with some commercial qualities. I’m looking to spec. it in a urban community center project.

    thanks,

    steve

    Mark,
    There is a website with an irrigation tutorial created by a landscape architect. It is a good overall primer for understanding the fundamentals of irrigation design. I’ve read through parts of it and find it easy to follow. Jess Stryker, the LA who wrote it, is also very humorous throughout making the subject a bit more engaging. Go to…[Read more]

    Mark,
    Are you looking to get into designing irrigation systems? If so, I would recommend taking a class that is taught by the Irrigation Association, or a local community college.
