Fall watering tips:
Because drip irrigation delivers water slower than sprinkler irrigation, it’s needed less frequently. LVVWD recommended frequency for drip irrigation during the Fall is 2 days per week.
The length of each watering depends on the flow of the drip emitters. For example, an emitter flow of up to 20 gallons per hour, needs 12 minutes of watering per emitter.
To figure out how quickly water flows (gallons per hour) from your drip emitters, see how long it takes to fill a tablespoon. For example, if the tablespoon fills in 14 seconds, the rate of flow is 1 gallon per hour.
