We have a zone for growing vegetables (Tomatoes, cucumbers, Basil etc). It is around 171 sq ft. We laid down drip pipe to water this zone. I measured GPM for this zone taking readings from water meter by running it for 5 mins. Based on that, I created a custom nozzle of emitter style with a precipitation rate of 1.41.
I marked this zone as shrub type zone as I don’t see anything for vegetable garden.
When I scheduled “As Needed” style schedule, It came up with 55 mins for this zone.
Plus it scheduled runs around a week apart. I read here from others that they water vegetable garden daily with a fixed schedule. Is this normal?
Plus I feel the precipitation rate of my custom nozzle seem high. It is more than the precipitation rate of other rotor style zones. Do I have a leak or am I skewing the numbers?
Are there any other parameters to describe vegetable garden instead of shrubs?
