It is useful to have a set of irrigation symbols available when designing irrigation layouts for gardens. Download this palette and get symbols for water connection, controllers, solenoid valves, irrigation lines, sprinklers etc.
Tip: The symbols here are designed for use in the metric environment where the base drawing unit is mm.
The palette includes symbols to indicate position of the water source, master valve assembly, solenoid valves, typical controllers and a range of rotator and spray heads.
To allow for easy insertion using the BLOCKS command, each symbol has been drawn on its own layer L-IRRIG. The base point is set in the center of the symbol.
Tip: Once the symbols have been placed a nd the design finalized, use the block extraction tools on the gCADPlus drop down menu to extract quantities
As an additional benefit, each irrigation line has been placed on its own layer. For example, a 25mm PVC piping line has been placed on a separate layer L-IRRIG-PVC-25MM. This allows the isolation of that layer and subsequent extraction of the length of piping required.
Tip: Layer naming conventions follow those published by the American Institute of Architects for designers using AutoCAD software.
The figure below shows a typical layout created using this symbol set.
Here is a link to a set of symbols more suited to larger scale open space irrigation projects.
