Sprinklers vs hose pipes...

Postby tsukoui » Mon Mar 13, 2017 12:16 pm

I don't know whether this is the place to ask such questions, I am new to gardening having only really looked after cacti in the past. My father uses a sprinkler to make sure that he reaches as much of the garden as possible, but it occurs to me that sometimes a hose pipe is needed, particularly when filling a watering can (??) my question is is there a difference in pressure required for a sprinkler or a hose pipe taking into account that in these days we need to conserve water, I don't want to ask a plumber because they know nothing about gardening and are more interested in making money for the water board. I don't want to bore you with history, but my dad told me that in his time, they had mechanism pulled by a donkey that extracted water from a well, the modern equivalent is collecting rain water, which is enough for a sprinkler, however it is hard to rely on it for washing animals which is of course another reason to use a hose. We only have pigs and chickens which mostly look after themselves or like to be dirty so it is not a big problem, anyway, some advice that's not too intellectual would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Wait a minute… hold your horses right there!

You’ve been fucking us around since Sep 30, 2010 (according to your account creation) during which not a single one of your 967 posts to date made any sense whatsoever and all of a sudden (since posting the thread about your junk posts) you post this gem which makes perfect sense???

So you’ve basically been trolling this forum for 7 whole fucking years! :evil:

Haven’t you got anything better to do with your miserable life you useless little CUNT?

So what’s the secret to your sudden remarkable cure form schizophrenia Tsuki? :?

Did someone perform a lobotomy on your pea over the weekend, or did you shove a couple of bottles of chlorpromazine in succession up your arse this time?

I’m sure the entire medical community wants to know your secret, bitch…

Sprinklers are typically used for watering grass.They need high pressure and you will need a pressurized tank system, not very expensive about 150 euros and consumes very little electricity.
For trees, bushes and the like the most effective system is the one that provides water drops.It's super economical, works with normal pressure, and it waters deep to root for example one drop per few seconds could reach the roots down to 1-1.5m
Watering directly from a hose pipe is anti-economical.

btw I understands GR's frustration.
Some people in this forum seem to be on drugs and you seem to be one of them. :cry:
It's a sad phenomenon, and I have had personal experience with such people , who eventually lose all their ability to do anything right.
Hundreds and repetitive work accidents that shouldn't occur, hundreds of "i forgot" hundreds of important things they "don't remember". Last one we had at work lost both spare keys of an expensive company car, and we had to order a new set from Germany they cost 300 CY pounds.
The guy was not on heavy drugs, I think it was only marijuana, but still look at the effects.
I hope I am wrong about you.

OK i got your message from your deleted post.
Answering to your last question of whether "the thirst for knowledge could ever be drowned" you should ask yourself whether that's real knowledge or the effect of a dream. :roll:

You still can't tell the difference between Elegua and Pan or Cupid :roll: Cuba and U.S. have been talking for some time via Britain. If I have played a role in facilitating exchange it has clearly been on the anthropological side :roll: :oops:
