A note regarding time

When developing a chemical treatment regime, keep in mind that it takes time for the chemical to travel through the system from the injection point to the last dripper:

  • What is the time that it takes for the chemical to reach the end of the drip line from the point where it is injected?
  • What is the time that it takes to flush the system, so that the entire system is free of the chemical to the point of the last drip emitter?

This calculation often requires a hydraulic engineer to advise the duration of this process.

Although important for all systems, it is particularly important for larger systems where the “travel time” to the last drip lateral can be significant.
