Software upgrade available for irrigation system
This latest version includes a search feature that helps users identify and select the desired Toro tape or dripline model quickly. Users also now have the ability to search for product models by flow rate. A screenshot of the software is shown below on the right.
“Toro’s tape and dripline product offering is extensive and includes hundreds of flow rate, spacing, mil thickness and diameter options. The product’s search feature makes it easy for the user to identify the desired model and select it for use in an irrigation block design,” says Inge Bisconer, technical marketing and sales manager for Toro Micro-Irrigation.
In addition, this upgrade includes an updated database with improved flow exponent X and flow coefficient K values for Toro’s Neptune flat emitter dripline product line. “Users will be pleased to discover that process innovations have improved Neptune’s performance, and that those values are now reflected in AquaFlow,” says Mara McCartney, product manager for Toro’s Flat Emitter Dripline.
AquaFlow design software is available to all registered users online. The product can be downloaded onto a computer from driptips.toro.com. Any previous versions of AquaFlow 4.0 must be uninstalled prior to downloading a new version, and any existing designs should be backed up before uninstalling.

Drip irrigation provides landscaping and grounds maintenance crews with significant water and capital investment savings, according to the company. Drip irrigation simultaneously improves plant vigor by delivering water and nutrients directly to the plant roots and avoiding unnecessary wetting of plant leaves.
