flexible pipe provides a consistent
network of capillary pathway through
the pipe walls, allowing a steady
and uniform leak rate. Therefore,
porous pipes actually breathes like
stomata of a leaf.
and automatic irrigation of plants
or Trees by using Porous Pipes(POROUS)
is the most modern and efficient method
of using water for irrigation. It
helps delivering water in the right
quantity at the right place and at
the right time. The system works with
low pressure that can be provided
by Gravity and does not require continuous
Electric Power. It is therefore most
suitable for rural areas where avilability
of Power is irregular. As water if
dispensed gradually and near the Roots
of the Platnt / Trees use of water
soluble Nutrients / Fertilizers is
possible .This application of Nutrients
/ Fertilizers is also done most economically.

- Select a suitable place for placing
a Local Storage tank. Use a Plastic Tank
of about 200 - 300 liters.
- This should be on a pedestal. Its base
should be about 3 - 4 ft. above the height
of the land to be irrigated.
- Connect up the supply from overhead
storage tank to the 'local Storage tank'
incorporating a float valve in the 'Local
Storage tank'. This will ensure that 'Local
Storage tank" will be cfontinusly full.
If you do not have an overhead tank you
will have to make other arrangement to
fill the 'Local Storage tank'
- Install a filter and a stop valve at
he outler of the 'local Storage tank',
and begin piping from there.
- You may install a header with as many
outlets as you would like to use from
this 'Local Storage tank'. Install a stop
valve at each outlet from the header.
- Lay lateral pipe from Stop valve of
the 'Loval Storage tank' or header if
used up to the end of the line of trees.
Use an end plug at the end of the line.
- This lateral and the POROUS pipe should
be embedded underground at a depth of
about 6 - 8 inches.
- Embed loop a of POROUS pipe around the
trunk of the tree at a distance of 6 -
8 inches and at the same depth as that
of lateral pipe.
Complete the loop by connecting a "Tee",
Place this loop in manner so that the
center outlet of the "Tee" is
towards the Lateral. Connect this center
end of the "tee" to the lateral
(with a distance place of lateral pipe
if necessary) using a connector.
- When you open the stop valve at the
outlet of the
'Loval Storage tank' or the header if used
water will flow through the Lateral and
the Loop of POROUS. Water will ooze out
from the Loop of POROUS wetting the soil
around the tree. The oozing will be automatically
controlled by the qty. of water absorbed
by the roots of the Tree. This process will
be continuous. The soil will be wet as per
