AboutThis calculator will help you estimate pressure loss is your system. This will help youe determine how long,large your system can be.
InstructionsThe flow rate in this form is actually the
actual water flowing through the systemrather than the maximum flow capacity as determined by our flow rate calculator. To determine your actual flow rate, either add up the flow rate of all emitters on the zone or use a flow rate measuring device at the start of the zone. Once you have the actual flow rate of your system you can enter that value into the box. Then choose your tubing size and hit calculate. This calculator does not take into account distance which is very important and tricky to calculate.
This calculator is intended to give you a general idea of what your pressure loss is at various flow rates. Calculating exact pressure loss in homogeneous systems such as residential drip irrigation is usually not necessary or practical.
