The SPOT-SPITTER spray stick controls water flow at the emitter stick, where it matters most. Other mini-sprayer sticks may require tedious, labor-intensive modifications of tubing and lengths to develop the flow characteristics desired. You can install the SPOT-SPITTER in seconds, selecting the proper flow rate and pattern and using the correct 1/8” micro tubing with the specified ID. Unlike other mini-sprayer sticks which tend to deform or break at the spray tip, the SPOT-SPITTER is made from premium UV-resistant resins, which resist tip damage and provide years of trouble-free operation in both indoor and outdoor applications.

Each spot spitter has a special purpose. The drak green 160 Degree spitter, Flow Rate 9.6-13.2 GPH works the best for us all around for 2-3 situations.

First we use them to give good coverage for planted seeds in rows until the seeds get their roots. Then we switch from spitters to emitters where the foliage is low to the ground. Where the plant stalks are tall with little foliage close to the ground, we just leave them in place the whole season.

Also they work well for things like asparagus where there is little foliage and it is always uncertain where the stalks will emerge.

We run two poly-tubes lines along the outer edges of beds and stagger these 160 spitters to point in toward the planted area. The coverage is perfect.

The dark green spitter works best for us as we are on rural well water. This flow rate distributed over only 160 degrees give a very even, strong spray. The light green 160 spitter does not put out enough water for our large outside beds but would work well for small beds or inside pots/boxes. The 360 blue spitters have about the same FR but the spray is weak. Occaissionally we also use the 90 Degree spitter with FR 2.4 -3.6 GPH at the end of a row/line where w plant flowers or herbs.
