The disadvantage of conventional drip irrigation pipes when laid underground is the risk of clogging of the nozzles by fine particles and roots in the soil and uneven water distribution. Therefore, these pipes are usually laid above ground. There, however, they are often damaged, so that a sufficient supply of water is no longer guaranteed.
Hence THE solution with the BLUELITE-RING: In existing trees, the BLUELITE-RING – a fleece-coated irrigation pipe – is led around the trunk in a ring shape at a depth of approx. 5-10 cm and connected with a branch line. For new tree plantings the BLUELITE-RING is placed on a LITE-NET growth net. In this way the water is effectively and evenly directed to the roots.
Further advantages: No clogging of the irrigation holes by roots or fine particles. The escaping water is capillary distributed in the fleece coat and irrigates the environment evenly over a very large contact area. Protection of the irrigation pipes against vandalism and UV influence. Personnel costs and water consumption are significantly reduced.
