DIG’s D52, 3/4″ Plastic Heavy Duty “Y” Hose End Splitter controls two outlets from a 3/4″ faucet or garden hose. The “Y” hose splitter allows for a connection of a drip irrigation system while providing an extra outlet for a garden hose or for additional drip irrigation zone..
|Y Hose Splitter
The 3/4″ hose end splitter is used as an extra outlet on your outdoor faucet and is ideal for adding a hose end drip irrigation system.
To the faucet, first connect a backflow device (model D45). If more than one outlet is needed, add a 3/4″ “Y” ball valve. If water quality is a concern, install DIG’s 3/4″ filter with 155-mesh (model D57A), then a 25 PSI pressure regulator (model D46), and finally a 3/4″ swivel adapter with screen (model C34).
The 3/4″ FHT backflow preventer is used to keep contaminated water from re-entering the household/municipal water supply lines, and in areas where discharge or spilling of water will not cause damage. If a timer is used, the backflow preventer should be installed after (downstream of) the timer.
The filter is used to protect the small orifices of the drip emitters and micro sprinklers against clogging and it is mounted after the backflow device if used.
The pressure regulator should be installed after the filter if used, and only if the system water source pressure is above 30 PSI.
