Tabs

Read Article
  • Keep the Eco-Mat lightly moist at all times.
  • Eco-Mat emitters flow at a rate of 0.6 gallons per hour (2.2 liters per hour). With consistent 14-inch (35-centimeter) laterals, the application rate will be 0.83 inches per hour (2.1 centimeters per hour).
  • Continuous run time should not exceed 10 minutes.
  • Run the zone for short and frequent periods to maintain soil moisture and prevent runoff. (For example, if scheduling calls for 15 minutes per day, consider three cycles of 5 minutes with sufficient soaking time in between).
  • Ponding at the soil surface is often caused by excessive run times, frequency, or leaks.
  • During plant establishment, increase irrigation run times and frequency to ensure plant health and viability.
  • Ensure the soil has been completely moistened prior to installing/laying sod.
  • Run time frequency will change based on warmer or colder weather.
