What does one use for greywater pumping from a reservoir tank? A submersible Sump pump?
Deveri Mathews
54:48
Would you be able to use one type of emitter for an entire garden or would you need to vary based on what is planted?
Joan Symonds
56:10
Typical pressure for frost free faucets?
SAMANTHA WINTER
56:33
What do you think about drip lines above ground or below? If below, how deep do you bury it and how do you get the water out in the winter to prevent freezing.
Joanne Lim-Pousard
57:05
My system freezes in the winter. Is there something I can do? Right now I just hand water until it warms up
Michelle Duran
57:27
Can the County Extension - Santa Fe County help onsite with recommendations for a home garden irrigation system? If so, who do we contact?

Can you comment on the usefulness of systems connected to ollas (in raised garden beds, for vegetables and flowers)
Jonathan MacCarthy
01:00:27
How successful are low-pressure gravity-fed drip irrigation systems? Are there some important factors to keep in mind to make them work well?
Rita McMillan
01:02:58
Most of my references state 1 inch a week. How do I covert to gallons per hour?
Michelle Duran
01:03:00
I'm sure I can look this up, but is there a difference in drip irrigation water amounts for lettuce vs. chile/peppers vs. root vegetables (carrots, onions, garlic, etc.)?

SAMANTHA WINTER
01:03:54
PVC vs. mainline tubing from dripworks? Does one tend to be better than the other?
Barbara Digas
01:03:56
for trees do you only have emitters at the drip line and not circling around tree outside to inside to the trunk?
Michelle Duran
01:04:10
Any local (Santa Fe) resources you can recommend to set up a drip irrigation system for a home garden?

Q from Ignacio: A dog tore through one of my main hoses, and I don’t want to replace the entire system. Are there fix kits?
SAMANTHA WINTER
01:06:21
how do we find our frost line?
Dorothy
01:08:19
Cover them with thick pvc pipe with holes in them
Dorothy

cover them with heavy gauge wire
Suzanne DeVos-Cole

Frost lines can range from 24 to 48". We had 20 below this winter and our water froze at 24 to reburied at 48"..
Susann Mikkelson
01:10:00
I was jokingly going to say to feed and water them away from the garden! Lol. but I have heard of protecting them in PVC or other pipe that is harder to penetrate.
Michelle Duran
01:10:00
Do you recommend a filter when using City of Santa Fe water with a hose?
Barbara Digas
01:10:04
If pests are a problem would mulch help deter them?
Brigitte Philipp
01:10:12
Drip Depot is another great vendor/resource. They have great customer service and lots of helpful videos. https://www.dripdepot.com/search?q=raised%20beds
