Industrial Irrigation Equipment

Australia is a beautiful and bountiful country, but it’s not known for being a particularly damp, which is unfortunate if you want to grow vegetables or other plants that need a lot of water. There are a lot of products that will help you set up, build on and maintain an irrigation system on an industrial scale. No two pieces of land are the same, and so no two irrigation systems are quite the same. This means systems are made up of modular parts, everything from water tanks and bladders, hoses, sprinklers, pumps and pipes.

Tanks and Bladders

The first step in every water-particulate’s journey through an irrigation system is the place where the water is stored. This can be either in a industrial irrigation tank or bladder typically. The reason for storing water is when it rains you not only don’t need to irrigate; you can collect the rain and store it for the dry days, which greatly decreases your ecological impact. You should try to match the amount of storage capacity you have to both your water usage and the amount of rainfall you get in your area, to ensure you’re not either constantly running on half empty or falling short of what you need or could have collected.

Pipes and Hoses

The next step is to channel the water from storage to where it needs to go. Usually the majority of the water will travel through industrial irrigation pipes and is then filtered through the field by hoses. The pipes are usually underground and much larger and resistant to wear and tear. The hoses are more flexible, both literally and in the sense that you can more easily move them around your property.


The final step is to squeeze the water through sprinklers at the end of the hose. Sprinklers can often be set up for particular patterns of water distribution, and to turn on at specific times. This can be helpful since you can programme the sprinklers to turn on and off to best fit your watering needs.
