Calculating your daily water needs

For referral to the previous post, here's a repeat of an earlier blog. Pick an ET rate (as given from your local Coop. Extension), follow the column down to the square footage of your planting area, and you'll be given the amount of water for each day. Click on the image and load into a page where you can enlarge the image. If this is too complicated, just buy my Drip Irrigation book from my website, :)

Hi Robert, one day I will have enough time to keep my own blog up to date..

Thought you might be interested in the following calculator we are using.

It is a 'backwards' ETo graywater calculator.

Based on the number of people in a house, the ETo value, graywater per person per day; it calulates the optimum irrigation area in sq ft (using graywater dripperline).
