Two Landscape Irrigation Classes Planned for Summer

June 17, 2019

     As FNGLA continues to put the finishing touches on its new Irrigation Certification and as momentum builds, it is proud to offer a series of irrigation education opportunities through Education on the Go!!

     Coming in August, Irrigation Pumps on the Go provides two different times for landscape professionals to learn the basic operating principles of irrigation pumps and the mechanical and performance differences among pump varieties.

     “Don’t miss the opportunity to learn the importance of collecting accurate job site information critical to selecting the correct pump for the right irrigation application and understand what you should expect from pumps,” says Linda Reindl, FNGLA’s Director of Education.

     Special consideration for pump site conditions, installation and maintenance will also be presented. Also covered will be:

  • Types of Industry pumps applications
  • Why Use Pumps?
  • Performance Expectations
  • Variable Frequency Drives vs Across the Line Start
  • Filtration basics
  • Basic Trouble-shooting

     Two class will be given at two separate locations, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tues., Aug 6 at Orange County Extension Services, 6021 S. Conway Rd., and from 9 a.m. to 2:30 Thurs., Aug. 8 at the Gulf Coast Research and Education Center, 14625 County Rd. 672, Wimauma, FL 33598.
