Tips making holes Biopori for infiltration
Tips making holes Biopori for infiltration. No matter how small your land, you still can make a hole biopori. Biopori hole method is a method of absorbing water power optimization to cope with flooding. The existence of a hole 10 cm in diameter biopori alone helps the absorption of ground water is as effective as uptake in an empty area of ± 3 m².
How to make it pretty easy:
- Make a hole in the ground with a diameter of 8-10 cm and a depth of 100 cm. Do not exceed the groundwater level.
- Fill the hole biopori with organic waste (garbage leaves) to near the high lip of the opening.
- You can create more than one hole in the yard, give 50-100 cm distance between holes.
The concept of working from biopori hole is quite simple. Organic waste stored in the pits will eventually decay. The rest of the trash will lure various fauna of soil and roots of other plants to create a cavity toward the biopori hole. Cavities is what will be the path of water from the hole biopori to other parts of the ground until it is completely absorbed.
- Make sure the area where the hole will be made away from the swamp, river, or trench. This is to prevent water from it out of the hole without a chance to be absorbed by the soil.
- The depth of the hole should not be less than 100 cm, because in the depths of that micro-organisms and bacterial decomposition were as decomposers of organic waste to become humus.
- Only organic waste that may be inserted into a hole biopori, for example, leaves and grass. Kitchen waste such as leftover vegetables that have been cooked ineffective for fishing soil fauna.
- When organic waste in it is transformed into humus, you can remove it and replace it with a new organic waste every 5-7 days. The humus can be utilized as fertilizer for crops.
