Drip & Microspray Irrigation
To start your drip system you will need a valve, filter and pressure regulator.
The amount of filtration and pressure regulation will vary depending on your
type of system.
Simple Set Up: 1.Hose bib vacuum
breaker to allow air into the tubing.
2. 25 psi regulator. 3. Cone Filter in
hose swivel to catch debris. 4. Hose
swivel with 1/2" drip tubing attached.
A more permanent
wye filter, pressure
regulator and then
an appropriate fitting
to transition either to
PVC or drip tubing.
Rain Bird's combination filter and
pressure regulator (PRF-075-RBY).
Great for initial set up or retro-fit
application. 3/4" MPT in x out, 20 psi
regulation, with a maximum flow of
4.5 gallons per minute.
Rain Bird's 1800Retro fits in place of a 4" pop
up spray head. It combines a filter and
pressure regulator to retro-fit into a
conventional spray system for conversion to
drip or micro-spray system.
There are a variety of pressure regulators
that regulate the pressure within various
flow ranges. For large systems combining
drip and micro-spray on one valve, select
a regulator that will allow higher flows. The
Hendrickson Brothers PR5830 Extra Duty
regulates the pressure to 30 psi between
flows of 1/2 gpm up to 12 gpm.
