DIG’s Micro Sprayers are low flow with full, half, quarter circle or strip spray patterns and a flow rate of 13.4 gallons per hour at 25 PSI. The 110B, 111B and 112B have a threaded barb and are available in packs of 10; the 110-1B, 111-1B and 112-1B, assembled with a 13” stake and 24” micro tubing with a 1/4″ barb for installation flexibility, are available in packs of one. Producing a fine spray in a range of patterns, the micro sprayers can cover areas from a 5.9’ radius to 19.8’ in full diameter, depending on the spray pattern. The low-precipitation-rate micro sprayers can be used for most planting areas and are suggested when low-flow overhead irrigation is desired or for an area where drip emitters or conventional sprinkler systems are not practical. They are assembled with two nonmoving parts and have no flow adjustment capability.

The Micro Sprayers are available with a preset flow rate of 13.4 GPH at 25 PSI and coverage of up to an 8.5’ radius and 18.4’ full circle, depending on the assembly used and the height of the micro sprayers above ground. Using a PE riser extension, the height of the sprayers can be adjusted to fit taller plants and higher vegetation growth. Use the micro sprayers when overhead watering is suggested on any type of planting, including vegetation that requires moisture, groundcovers, flowerbeds or individual trees along the poly tubing. The recommended spacing is 4’ to 8’ between the spray heads or one per tree to a maximum distance of 68’ to 112’ in length using the 1/2” drip tubing as the main lateral.
The micro sprayers are an efficient and reliable method to apply water. To cover densely planted areas, place the micro sprayers close together in rectangular or triangular spacing for good overlapping irrigation and better uniformity. Do not use the micro sprayers in windy areas as the micro sprayers’ small-sized droplets can be easily dispersed in the air, even under low to moderate wind conditions, adversely affecting uniformity. The main advantage of low-flow micro irrigation is that a relatively large number of micro sprayers can operate simultaneously.
Basic installation recommendations for this product include first reviewing the area and then making a drawing of the garden or site with your preferred layout.
If automation is required, use one of DIG’s hose end timers or battery operated controllers. The ideal controller should have flexible scheduling and two to four start times per day for added flexibility.
