Hey y'all. This is Jason Ross, co-author of the Black Autumn Series of Survival Preparedness, homesteading Fiction. I'm also the head screenwriter of the upcoming Homestead Black Autumn Television Show. We are so stoked. One of the things I'm doing as a writer is to really focus in on research. And I've been researching as many of you know, the Thirsty Earth Olla system. It's like a dry land farming widget or hack. So I'm here in Hawaii at my winter home in Hawaii where I get to garden all winter long. I know you're jealous. And I'm now 30 days into this little experiment where I put three Thirsty Earth Ollas in my 30x30 sweet potato bin to see how it really does. So, as you can see, if you know sweet potatoes, it's ridiculous.
Water Pressure is of the Devil: A homesteader’s tale of breaking his addiction to municipal water pressure
Oh, glorious water pressure. Showers. Spray nozzles. Sprinklers. Drip irrigation. Burblers. Emitters. The sweet, sweet pleasures of modern technology waste 98.3% of the water we put into our gardens. In other words, only 1.7% of the water we put on our plants gets absorbed by roots.* The rest goes into the sky or into the ground, and it’s all because of scorchingly-high municipal water pressure.
In this blog, we go over 5 of the biggest problems with watering your garden using modern water pressure and how ollas solve them. Irrigation with water pressure wastes too much water, is controlled by the city, relies on complex, vulnerable pumping systems, are prone to leaking, and is expensive.

This is the ultimate guide on why all automatic olla watering systems need a reservoir. The Thirsty Earth Olla watering system requires constant low pressure (0.5 psi) vs. the high-pressure conventional watering systems use (40 psi), like drip systems, sprinklers, and even hand watering with a hose. This ultra-low pressure is one way the Thirsty Earth olla garden watering system uses dramatically less water, all while giving your plants exactly the amount of water they need. Instead of wasting water by giving your plants too much water, 1-4 times a day, our system always gives your plants the precise amount of water they need 24/7.
