While there are many ways to water your garden, an irrigation system allows you to apply controlled amounts of water to an area. An irrigation system also gives you the freedom of not having to manually water your garden with a sprinkler or by hand, plus the convenience of being able to set your irrigation system to come on at your choice of day and time.

Use a bucket to perform the flow test
The first step of the irrigation planning is to perform a Simple Bucket test which can be measured by timing in seconds how long it takes to fill a 9 litre household bucket.
To do this test, follow the steps below:
1. Collect a standard 9 litre bucket.
2. Choose a time before 9am or after 6pm to conduct the test.
3. Turn off all taps and appliances that may affect water pressure including washing machines, dishwashers etc.
4. Use the tap closest to your water meter and turn it on fully.
5. Place the bucket underneath and time how long it takes to fill in seconds.
You will need to borrow a flow test unit if the system is running off a bore pump as a 9 litre bucket test will be insufficient.
Use the irrigation planning tool to draw your property layout and add as many features as you can
Using the grid paper on the planner, draw your property layout to scale. Add as many features of your landscape as you can and measuring each feature to scale is essential. Make sure you draw features such as lawn and garden areas, your home, driveways, paved areas, pools and water features, trees, verandas and patios and vegetable gardens and plants.
