The proposed innovation is a Free-Energy Water Supply Irrigation System with simple components, consisting of recycled plastic drums, PVC pipes and HDPE flexible hose without electric power, water pump nor operator. The system will be operating on Siphon Principle and hydraulic gravitational force. It addresses the problem of dry spells especially during the second term of the planting season (Pangulilang).
The source of water is a river that does not dry up even on summer and dry season. This will ensure that there will be an ample water to be siphoned to the rice farms through the HDPE pipelines and irrigation canals.
