Hello CaptainCaptain Hornet said:I have a muscadine vineyard with about 24 vines. They are sensitive to dry times like we have here in the Carolinas. So I installed a drip watering system using our old well. It worked ok but I found after a week my plants were not getting any water. The problem was that the small water metering orifices in the nozzles would get plugged up with sand and trash from the well. So it was a pain in the butt to clean out the nozzles every week. Then I put a expensive whole house filter on the system and that solved that problem. Than I noticed my electricity bill was sky high, from running the pump. So I just hooked the watering system up to city water and solved all my problems. It probably costs me a extra 20 dollar's or so every year but when I put that big juicy muscadine in my mouth, I forget all about that. David.
