How to solve the pressure problem in a drip irrigation system

What is pressure compensation? Drip irrigation systems apply water to plants at very low flow rates. This minimizes water losses caused by evaporation and confines the water within the root zone of the plant, where it is truly necessary. Pressure compensation is a term used to describe an emitter that maintains the same water [...]
