As if the drought here isn't causing enough trouble I find my drip lines to my greenhouse are not delivering water they way they should. I have 4 raised beds and the lines feed from the outer beds to the inner beds from the tank outside. The outside beds seem to receive adequate moisture but the inside beds ( the larger ones) are not. I note that the emitters have alakaline-like residue on them. Is there some way to clean these lines so they flow water more efficiently?
Thanks in advance,
"cleaning" drip lines
Sounds like you have calcium/lime deposits. You either have to clean the deposits off or replace the emitters or add some softener to your water before it starts flowing through your lines.
