Solutions to existing clogging problems
I Have a Clogging Problem and I Want to Solve ItClogged drip emitters and microsprinklers result in a reduction or total elimination of water discharge from the emitter. Partially clogged drip emitters are particularly problematic, since they reduce water application but can easily go unnoticed until they stop discharging entirely. Partial clogging of drip emitters is difficult to detect by eye, but you can be detect it if you measure timed water discharge rates from a sampling of emitters. Partially clogged microsprinklers are often easier to detect than partially clogged drip emitters since you can see an obvious disruption of the microsprinkler's spray pattern.
