Water for Profit: Flushing of Micro-irrigation systems

Flushing is necessary to remove build-up of sediment, iron and algae within the pipelines. It helps to remove air that may accumulate and become trapped, especially in laterals, due to slight undulations in the grade of the line. Flushing of mains, submains and laterals should be carried out regularly to reduce partial blocking of pipelines and to prevent blockages of emitters.
