The design of irrigation systems is done in-house by qualified technical experts. In order to effectively handle the more than 15 000 ha’s worth of enquiries received during this year, a standard procedure is followed. 

First time enquiries receive an info pack consisting of basic technical information and block layouts. The next step is a cost estimate by using standard design layouts. The cost estimate provides a good ball-park figure.

A detailed cost estimate can be obtained by paying a minimal commitment fee. This detailed cost estimate includes block layout, detailed pipe layout, pipe sizes and class, structure layout, detailed drawings and a bill of quantities which can be placed on tender. 

Also included in the document is a step by step guide to the installation procedures, system maintenance instructions and basic irrigation scheduling recommendations.

Next the necessary equipment can be purchased using the bill of quantities. The installation can be started. The installation process is simple and easy to do. During this time Floppy Sprinkler (Pty) Ltd. provides constant support and assistance for the successful installation of the system. Furthermore the company also provides training on irrigation management and scheduling to aid farmers in obtaining optimal crop production. 

At the end of the day the irrigation system is designed by qualified technical experts. The design is customized to suit each individual’s specific requirements. This ensures a system that is economically viable with capital costs and running costs breaking even at an optimal point.
