Step by Step Guide

RQ-step_1_low

COMPLETE ACCESSMENTS

Determine how the Root Quencher™ can serve the needs of your yard. Call, text, or email the In Deep Irrigation team to discuss a plan.

RQ-step_2

LOCATION

Select a location for each unit that will be root-adjacent. We don’t want to damage roots in the installation (typically just
inside the drip line).

RQ-step_3

DIG A HOLE

Determine what sprinkler line and zone you will be tying in to, and then dig a hole near that line to the appropriate depth for the plant/tree.

RQ-step_4

MEASURE AND ADJUST

Adjust the Root Quencher™ to the proper depth and insert into the hole.

RQ-step_5

CONNECT

Connect to your water source.

RQ-step-6

SET WATER VOLUME

Turn on the zone and balance the water flow into the chamber with the rest of the heads in the system (ideally you want enough water flowing that the chamber fills and soaks in simultaneously without overflowing). 

RQ-step-7_low

FERTILIZE

Determine the correct fertilization schedule for your plants, and fertilize as needed through the same watering chamber.

RQ-step-8_low

MONITOR

Monitor the first couple of cycles to make sure the valve/flow settings are correct. A perfect setting allows the chambers to fill but not overflow.

NOTE: The chamber holds 1 gallon of water (fully extended) so you can determine over time the amount of water the tree or plant needs based on its appearance. Moisture sensors are also available for those who prefer to be more technical.
