DIG’s 24VAC Drip Zone Assembly Kit is a complete drip zone unit composed of a 3/4”, 24VAC in-line valve, 3/4” heavy duty filter with a 155 mesh screen, 25 PSI preset pressure regulator and 3/4” FHT swivel adapter with .700 OD. The drip zone provides installation simplicity with reliable performance and an affordable price to start a drip irrigation installation. The assembly kit automates a drip irrigation zone, provides protection to the drip emitters and micro sprinklers from particles that may enter the system, and reduces or regulates the incoming pressure of the water entering the micro irrigation system to the appropriate operating pressure of 25 PSI, which is within the range of recommended operating pressures for a drip irrigation system.

The 24VAC Drip Zone Assembly Kit contains all the parts needed to start a drip irrigation system, including a 24VAC 3/4″ FNPT heavy duty in-line valve, 3/4″ “Y” filter with 155 mesh, and 3/4″ 25 PSI preset pressure regulator (completely assembled). The kit also includes a 3/4” swivel adapter with .700 OD to connect the drip zone kit into drip tubing. This assembly can be used to start a drip irrigation system from a 3/4″ PVC pipe, connecting the 24VAC valve to any AC controller via 18 to 22 AWG gauge electric wire. Use this drip zone kit for a drip irrigation system installation in residential or commercial applications.
Drip irrigation requires clean water and proper operating pressure. The cause of most drip irrigation system failures is either high pressure or clogged drip emitters, therefore, a screen filter and a pressure regulator are the most important components in the micro irrigation system. This drip zone kit provides the user with a complete kit that includes two extra parts to allow automation of the system and connection to the drip tubing.
The 24VAC in-line valve is a heavy duty, high flow 24-volt electric valve that operates with any AC controller on the market. The valve’s reinforced diaphragm provides reliable operation under a range of incoming pressures and operates even with contaminated water.
The screen filter is a simple and economical method for protecting a drip irrigation system. Periodically, the filter screen needs to be cleaned by opening the filter cover, removing the screen and rinsing the screen under water.
The preset pressure regulator is used to reduce and regulate the incoming pressure of the household’s water entering a drip irrigation or micro sprinkler system to the appropriate operating pressure range of 25 PSI, which is within the range of recommended operating pressures for a micro irrigation system.
