DIG’s adjustable micro sprayer kit (model SM500) is a complete kit designed to water a garden of up to 500 sq ft and is ideal for flowerbeds, shrubs, groundcovers, container beds, and under tree canopies. The kit has all the parts needed to install a system with eight adjustable micro sprayers starting from an outside hose faucet, and can be automated using one of DIG’s battery operated or solar powered controllers. It can accommodate expansion of up to 1000 sq ft by using additional 1/2″ drip tubing and micro sprayers for a total flow rate of up to 220 GPH.
|Micro Sprayer Kit
The Adjustable Micro Sprayer Kit can be used in a wide range of gardens layouts with shrubs, trees flowers and groundcovers. The kit uses adjustable micro sprayers with 360°, 180° and 90° spray patterns to provide installation flexibility to create a beautiful garden. The adjustable micro sprayers in this kit have no moving parts and distribute the water in a very similar manner to conventional spray heads but with a very low application rate. This kit contains all the parts required to install a complete system for up to 500 SF and includes everything needed to hook up to any standard outdoor water faucet or garden hose. If a faucet is not adjacent to the garden or to the location of the adjustable micro sprayers installation, use additional length of ½” drip tubing (model # B35 for 50‘ or model # B36 for 100’) or extend it from the faucet using a garden hose. To start the installation, install the backflow device directly to the faucet or to the end of the garden hose, followed by a 25-PSI pressure regulator. 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 (faucet) using a backflow preventer, pre-set pressure regulator and swivel adapter. A filter is recommended.
Lay the poly tubing along the path and around the plants area and connect it to the swivel adapter. Leave the poly tubing outin the sun for a few minutes to make it easier and more flexible.
Add the tee, elbows, and other parts as needed. Punch a hole into the poly tubing and attach the micro sprayers to the 1/2″ poly tubing or to the end of the micro tubing.
When completed, turn the water on, flush the line and close the end of the poly tubing using a figure “8” hose end.
