DIG’s D54 two-in-one Filter/Pressure Regulator assembly combines a 150 mesh stainless steel filter with a 25 PSI pressure regulator, reducing the number of components needed to start a drip irrigation installation, making it smaller, more dependable and easier to install. The heavy duty filter/pressure regulator’s compact design fits in smaller sized areas while supporting reliable operation and easy maintenance of a drip irrigation zone. Install the 150-mesh filter built in with 25 PSI pressure regulator upstream of the control valves or after the solenoid valve and that the unit should not be operating under a static pressure. Make sure to use 3 to 5 rounds of Teflon tape on all male threads before installation.

The two-in-one Filter/Pressure Regulator is a critical part of drip irrigation systems where clean water and proper operating pressure are recommended. 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 Filter/Pressure Regulator provides the user with a single unit to both keep the water clean and lower the pressure to 25 PSI.
The screen filter is a simple and economical device for protecting a drip irrigation system from clogging. Periodically, the filter screen needs to be cleaned by opening the filter cover, removing the screen and rinsing the screen under water.
The built in preset filter/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.
The starting point of connection to the water supply can be an AC valve or anti-siphon valve
Install the built in 150-mesh filter with 25 PSI pressure regulator upstream of the control valves or after the solenoid valve and make sure that the unit will not be under constant static pressure. Please use 4 to 6 rounds of Teflon tape on all male threads before installation.
