|GE200||Ultimate Drip Irrigation & Micro Sprinkler Kit |
The GE200 Deluxe Drip and Micro Sprinkler Kit can be used in a wide range of layouts to accommodate most garden watering requirements. The kit uses micro sprayers with 360°, 180° and 90° spray patterns and PC drip emitters to provide a full flexibility within the installation. The micro sprayers have no moving parts and distribute the water in a very similar manner to conventional spray heads but with very low flow and with very low application rate. The PC drip emitters in the kit can be used to cover additional individual plants within the layout. This kit contains all the parts required to install a complete system for up to 700 SF. It can be connected into a 3/4″ faucet/spigot or a garden hose. If a faucet is not adjacent to the garden or to the location of your drip and micro sprayers irrigation installation, you may extend from the faucet using a garden hose or use additional length of ½” drip tubing (model B35 for 50‘or B36 for 100’). To start the installation, the backflow device can be mounted directly to the faucet or to the end of a garden hose. Please make sure to add the 25 PSI pressure regulator (included) after the backflow preventer. The pressure regulator is used to lower the incoming pressure from the faucet to the recommended operating pressure of 25 PSI, which is within the range of operating pressures for drip irrigation or micro-sprinkler systems.
Connect to your water source using the backflow preventer, pressure regulator and swivel tubing adapter.
Lay the poly tubing throughout your landscape. Leave the poly tubing out in the sun for a few minutes to make it easier to work with.
Connect compression elbows and tees as needed.
Secure the line using tubing stakes.
Where you would like to place a drip emitter or extend with micro tubing, punch a hole in the poly tubing using the hole punch.
Insert the drip emitter into the hole or at the end of the micro tubing.
Secure at the base of the plant using 1/4″ tubing holders.
For micro sprayers, punch a hole in the poly tubing using the hole punch and connect with micro tubing and barb.
Flush the line and close the end of the poly tubing using a figure “8” hose end.
Note: To expand the kit we highly recommend continuing with the same model micro sprayer and drip emitter components.
