DIY Irrigation now an option with K-Line Farm Pack

January 26, 2012 Phil Gatehouse

The well-known K-Line irrigation pods can be seen on larger farming properties all over New Zealand, but until now have usually required a consultation with an irrigation consultant to put in place.

Our new Farm Pack makes this affordable irrigation option as easy as a trip to your local farm supplies retailer.

The new Farm Pack just made sense to us. We know there are lots of smaller properties that would benefit from K-line, so we wanted to make it easy to simply walk into the shop and walk out with a pack with everything you need to get your irrigation up and running.

The Farm Pack concept was already proven with our  North American customers, so we knew there was a good chance it would be popular here too.

Each package will cover 1 hectare of land and includes five irrigation pods, 100m of 32mm K-pipe, NAAN sprinklers and saddles, and all the other necessary components to install the system.

If you have a bigger block, buying two Farm Packs will irrigate more than two hectares of land.

The only additional requirement is to purchase a Jet Pump to push water through the system. We recommend installing a .75kw pump for 1 ha and a 1.1Kw or 1.5HP Jet Pump for two Farm Pack kits.

The pack comes with a full set of written instructions and an instructional DVD to ensure that all bases are covered.

Although we have put this together with lifestyle blocks and small horticultural properties in mind, it can just as easily be used to water sports fields, parks and be used to help control dust in drier areas – or even in Christchurch where there are issues with dust from dried liquefaction.
