Drip irrigation pipes and fittings are usually made of polyethylene, which is used as a good material to resist weather conditions and corrosion. Also, these pipes have light weight and high flexibility and are used for irrigation in flat and hilly lands.
Drip irrigation fittings include various fittings such as taps, clamps, couplers, tees and elbows, which are used to connect pipes and taps. Also, in this type of irrigation system, automatic water pumps and distributors can be used to accurately and optimally deliver water to the roots of plants.
The use of drip irrigation pipes and fittings for watering plants is widely used due to advantages such as reducing the cost of irrigation, reducing evaporation, and protecting water from corrosion and spoilage. This irrigation system as one of the ways of optimal management
And the optimal use of water resources is used in countries with water shortage problems as well as in arid and semi-arid regions. The use of this irrigation system is also very common in the Mediterranean countries.
In addition to agricultural uses, drip irrigation pipes and fittings are also used in gardens, parks, urban green spaces, and greenhouses. In greenhouses, by using this irrigation system, it is possible to irrigate precisely and optimally, as well as provide automatic irrigation and more efficient water management.
Among the other advantages of using drip irrigation pipes and fittings, we can mention the reduction of damage to agricultural products due to the limitation of water contact with plants, as well as the reduction of water evaporation and the increase of efficiency in water consumption. Also, the installation and maintenance of this type of irrigation system is simple and inexpensive, and if used correctly and appropriately, it greatly saves agricultural costs.
