  • Drip Irrigation is a unique type of irrigation which will save not only your plants but will save water in the process.

    It does this by evenly distributing the water, one drop at a time, evenly and directly onto the plant's roots. It can be used alongside other forms of irrigation, but on it's own it can often prove to be the best, most efficient irrigation systems to use.

    Given the generally dry conditions here in the Austin area, it's much preferred over more traditional standard methods of irrigation, which tend to waste water with excessive over-spray, as well as applying water where the plant generally doesn't need it. Additionally, water is saved by eliminating other obstructions, such as the wind while it's able to distribute water evenly and prevent any unwanted runoff or potential soil erosion.

    By focusing on the root, the plant is better able to maintain it's ideal moisture level, while creating deeper roots and abundant, fuller foliage overall. Drip irrigation in Austin can be used in home & vegetable gardens, trees, commercial landscapes, as well as greenhouses, row crops and even orchards & other trees.

    With the recent drought inevitably set to cause more restrictions on our water use in Austin, drip irrigation is one of the most effective ways to minimize evaporation while providing the optimum level of moisture, one drop at at time, for a wide range of gardening needs.

Watering at improper times can not only be a waste of money, but it can make your business look bad to others. Has your company been fined by the city because of the antiquated sprinkler system installed now? In addition, when converting to a commercial drip irrigation system, you won’t have to worry about the system coming on when nature is pouring down providing the irrigation for you. Your company can save money, and show you care about the environment with drip irrigation.

    Drip irrigation saves money and conserves resources.

    Commercial drip irrigation is the solution to not only conserve the water in the area but save you on money. Drip irrigation waters at the source, the roots, so there is less evaporation, water runoff, and over watering issues. The water is supplied to the roots of the vegetation, watering the terrain perfectly no matter what time of year it is. You no longer have to rely on others to turn the sprinkler system off or on as needed based on changes to the weather or needs of the business itself.

Why assist or help pay to water your neighbors plants, and yard? Do you see water running off from areas of your yard to the street or driveway yet still have patches of your yard that are dead or barren. Are there plants that are just not getting the water coverage that is needed and are slowly wilting? Do you have to remember to run out regularly to water parts of your yard, garden, or plants that the sprinkler system currently installs cant reach? Or have you lost plants because of fungi or other problems that over watering can cause? Why worry or concern yourself with any of this when you can have Taurus Irrigation convert all or part of your property to drip, the best way to water your yard, garden, plants, shrubs and trees?

  • The City of Austin is leaning more towards drip irrigation these days. In our opinion, this move should not only be local but statewide. Other states have been closely monitoring irrigation system's designs, and in some areas only allowing drip irrigation. As of recently, the COA has been trying to enforce more rules and trying to allow drip irrigation during certain levels of drought.

     

    If we are converting all or some of your existing sprinkler system to drip irrigation, it is done the same way as installing a new system. The only difference is that we use specific parts that reduces flow and have a self containing filter.
