DIG’s Living Wall™ professional drip expansion accessories pack allows for an expansion of an existing Living Wall™ with five individual pots. The expansion pack uses pressure compensating drippers with a check valve to maximize efficient use of water.

If you expand the system, make sure to make a rough sketch of the layout you have before you start.
The PC drip emitters with preset flow rates discharge the same amount of water under a pressure range of 10 to 50 PSI, allowing for higher uniformity and longer lateral runs within the vertical garden planting. This feature allows the number of drip emitters on a single line to be maximized while maintaining an even flow rate from each PC drip emitter along the line.
The drippers included in the kit contain a silicon diaphragm that continuously adjusts to varying water pressures and at the same time allows particles to pass through the drip emitter’s water passage, providing reliable performance and a longer life. This method of flushing with a large flow path allows the drip emitters to operate at optimal flow rates under extreme conditions. In addition, the drippers have a special water saving feature that eliminates water draining when the system is shut off at around 2.2 PSI (.15 bar). At this pressure, the pressure compensating drip emitters shut off completely, preventing any water drainage from the lateral. When the system is turned on again the drippers simultaneously reopen at 4.3 to 4.5 PSI (.3 to .31 bar) for precise control of water flow over the length of the lateral.
