The blue SPOT-SPITTER, spray stick with flow rate of 9.0 to 12.6 GPH from from the John Deere Water Product line is one of the most cost-effective, versatile solutions for your nursery watering application. Low cost and ease of installation have made this product line a favorite among nurseries and growers worldwide. With a wide range of flow rates and wetting patterns, and using specially sized 1/8” micro tubing, the right spray stick to fit your nursery application is easy to choose. This spray stick comes color-coded and with 90, 160, and 360-degree spray patterns, and the Drip Store includes all the components needed for installation.
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.

To install the SPOT-SPITTER into the drip tubing lateral, first select the flow rate and the spray stick degree of coverage, then insert the spray stick into the 1/8” micro tubing. Next, punch a hole into the side of the drip tubing using a 4 mm punch, and then insert the micro tubing into the drip tubing. No barb connector or other parts are needed.
