Low Pressure Drip/Micro System Design - Analysis of Potential Rebate
Sponsor: California Energy Commission
Drip/micro irrigation systems are often referred to as “low pressure” systems because the required emitter pressures are relatively low (6-12 psi). However, the pump discharge pressures of systems on flat ground throughout California average 40 psi. This report examines readily attainable system losses by examining individual components of the drip/micro system.
