The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Y-splitting

hose Y split We installed a new Y splitter to create an additional sprinkler zone for the garden.

It's made of metal with plastic coating. We started out using one made entirely of plastic, which was a mistake I won't repeat again.

The plastic version sometimes leaked and eventually cracked.

The goal is to have the irrigation system down to just turning a valve off and another one on to switch zones. This way we can save more time for weeding and other wonderful activities on the farm.
