FREE Waterwise Sprinkler Catch Cups from Lawn Doctor Turf Shop

27 Nov 2017

Catch Cups are vital to being able to measure the water output from your reticulation. They will make it easy to measure and determine how long you need to run your retic for to put out the right amount of water to keep a healthy green lawn all summer. The catch cups will also help you with your retic audit. 

Putting them out all over the lawn (place some in good areas of lawn and some in areas where the lawn is not doing so well) will let you know how your retic is functioning. If you have different amounts of water in different cups, it could mean you have a blocked sprinkler head (sand can do this), broken pipe, or that it has been knocked and is misaligned and spraying the water in the wrong direction. 

If it turns out that you have the same amount of water in each catch cup, but you still have an area with dry patch, it strongly suggests that the soil in this area is hydrophobic and is repelling the water. This is very common in Perth’s sandy soil and means you will need to apply a liquid soil wetting agent such as Aqua Force and Bi Agra or an granular wetting agent such as Soil Soak. Make sure you use a commercial grade wetting agent such as one of those mentioned as there is a big difference in the quality of wetting agents on the market and the amount of time they work for. Some domestic grade wetting agents only work for the day they are applied!

                                                               So, for a healthy green lawn all summer, Catch Cups are the key tool you should have in your garden shed
