Watering
« on: Sun February 03, 2019, 02:49:24 PM »
Hello everyone.  Recently I have been bidding on a lot of projects that require temporary watering.  For example, a project would require watering so the soild is moist to 1" deep 2x a week for the first week, and 1x a week for the next 3 weeks.  I know this isn't really needed with hydroseed, but I don't write the specs... We have this on projects anywhere from 1/2 acre to 15 acres.  On the smaller jobs we are fine with timers and impact sprinklers, but when we get up over a couple acres, that isn't as easy, I would require a large investment to cover completely, and watering something that often with a hydroseeder is even worse by my math.  As of now the best solution I found is possibly using the 1.25" sprinklers northern tool has and running them off a water pump from a pond, or a buffer tank fed by a fire hydrant.  These sprinklers cover about 17,000 sqft, do 25-60 GPM and have wheels to move them around.  Have any of you done something similar or have another solution?  Thanks!
