Traditional methods of irrigation often include pulley systems that are used to deliver water to soil, vegetation, flowers, and/or other forms of plant life. For many farmers who can't afford expensive spray systems that are pre-timed for near-perfect results, lower-priced, traditional methods of irrigation, such as ra-hats, chain pumps, or lever systems (also known as Dhe Kli) can be very cost-effective. Here is a look at the most common methods of low-tech irrigation:

Pulley Systems

• Pulleys are used to carry buckets of water where they are needed. Much like clotheslines that use pulleys to move clothes nearer or further away, pulley systems for irrigation are designed to cut down on the amount of manual labour needed to take care of gardens or farmland. Since pulleys automate part of the process, they are a cheap and useful way to carry water to plants and soil. Pulleys must be installed aboveground - they may be tied to stakes that are buried in the earth - strong rope will hold the pulley-based irrigation system together.

Chain Pumps

• These ancient Chinese irrigation systems use round metal discs and a long loop of metal chain to water soil and plants. Each metal disc runs through a pool of liquid, and each disc collects some water during this process. When the chain is pulled, the metal disc rises up to the top, and the water held inside pours out, hydrating the earth and flora. This low-cost method of traditional irrigation has been practised for centuries.

Lever Systems

• Lever systems allow the user to control the speed of irrigation by choosing slow, medium or fast water flow; however, the lever system method is not as ancient, or inexpensive, as other methods mentioned here.

Traditional irrigation systems allow farmers or hobbyists to keep their plants and soil moist, which creates the right atmosphere for the growth of healthy plants.
