Rain Hose Irrigation System

A rain hose irrigation method is an innovation that uses perforated pipes to supply water to crops. Rain hose pipes are special flexible tubes with many small holes on the surface that release water.

How Rain Hose Systems Work

Tiny sprays of water jet out in an upward throw that may reach a few meters from the pipe.

A rain hose irrigation system is a connection of rain hose pipes, start pipes, and fittings. All these components combine to form a functional system that distributes water to plants.

How to Ensure Rain Hose System is Operational

The goal of the rain hose system is to supply water to crops in fine thin jets at pressure. Therefore, the pipes should meet and withstand the pressure of the water to ensure the required flow rate is attained.

An ideal water pump should also be used to attain the pressure required for the rain hose pipes to release water.

Required Pressure and Specifications of Rain Hose Pipes

To run a rain hose irrigation system, the system needs a pressure rate of 0.8 – 1.5 bar. The irrigation method attains a flow radius of 2 – 6 m as per the pipe size.

To maintain a balance in water distribution from the pipe start to end, the length of laying should be as recommended. Laying lengths vary with the diameter of the pipes.

  1. 32 mm pipe laying length – 25-40 m.
  2. 40 mm pipe size – 30 – 50 m
  3. 50 mm pipe size – 70 – 80m
  4. 63 mm size – about 90 – 100m
