See Added Parts to expand your system by purchasing additional pieces separately.

The K025 Multi-Outlet Drip Irrigation Kit is The Drip Stores' deluxe, custom designed drip irrigation kit specially designed for greenhouse and “pots on benches” installation. The Automatic Drip Irrigation Kit contains a digital battery-operated controller, 100’ of high quality 1/2" drip hose with .600” ID x .700” OD and all the parts needed to install a drip irrigation system for 100 pots and baskets, on up to four benches.

The watering components include 20 1-gallon per hour (GPH) PC drippers with check valve, 20 .5-gallon per hour (GPH) PC drippers with check valve, 10 four-outlet adapters, 20 two-outlet adapters and 20 one outlet adapters inserted on top of the drippers. The adapters split the drippers’ flow rates into .25 GPH per outlet and .5 GPH per outlet to water different sizes of pots and baskets. This complete drip kit can be expanded to up to 800 pots and baskets.

The drip irrigation kit contains everything you need to implement a drip system from the controller to the end of the line. Included in this drip irrigation kit are a 3/4" filter, 100 2' lengths of micro tubing to feed the pots, 100 stakes, and all the fittings and accessories needed to install the system. This drip irrigation system requires assembly of the drippers with the single outlet, two-outlet or 4-outlet adapters, the micro tubing and the stakes.

Recommendation: Dip the end of the micro tubing in hot water to make it easy to connect the micro tubing to the stake.

Important: To make sure that you have even uniformity from all the stakes, use the stake with the water labyrinth for the 2-outlet and 4-outlet adapters, and the stake with the barb for the single outlet adapter.

  • Dripper check valve sealing pressure and opening pressure : Seal 2.9 PSI, open 5.8 PSI
  • Dripper flow rate: .5 GPH Brown, 1 GPH Black
  • Maximum incoming operating pressure: 100 PSI
  • Operating pressure: 7 to 55 PSI

Installation for K025

 

This drip irrigation kit has all the parts needed to start the system connecting to a faucet.  The Drip Store also includes instructions on how to start the system from a PVC pipe or a pipe thread.

Starting the irrigation system from a faucet:

  • Use the 3/4" MHT x MPT nipple (model A010) to start from a pipe thread
  1. From the faucet use a battery-operated timer (model C001.) Connect the controller to the faucet.
  2. Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT backflow device to the controller (model A015).
  3. Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT filter (model F300) to the backflow device if used, or directly to the controller male outlet.
  4. Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT pressure regulator (model A013) to the filter.

Optional: Starting the irrigation system from a PVC pipe:

  1. Glue to a 3/4" PVC pipe a PVC female adapter (model P357) (not included).
  2. Use the 3/4" MHT x MPT nipple (model A010) to connect to the pipe thread making sure to use 3-5 rounds of Teflon tape.
  3. Connect the 3/4" FHT X MHT battery-operated controller (model C001) to the nipple.
  4. Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT backflow device to the controller or to the faucet (model A015).
  5. Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT filter (model F300) to the backflow device, if used, or directly to the controller male outlet or faucet.
  6. Connect the 3/4" 25 PSI FHT x MHT pressure regulator (model A013) to the filter.

Steps to connect all others components:

  1. To the 3/4" FHT x MHT pressure regulator connect the 3/4" FHT swivel adapter (model LF503).
  2. To the 3/4" swivel adapter connect the 100’ of 1/2" drip tubing with .600 ID x .700 OD (model T003) and run the drip tubing into the greenhouse and perpendicularto the benches.
  3. Near the center of each bench cut the drip tubing and connect a 1/2" tee (model LF005). Use one tee for each row and for the last row use a 3/4" elbow (model LF007). To the tee or elbow connect the 1/2" drip tubing and lay it along the center of each bench.
  4. Turn the water on and flush the line, and then close the end of the 1/2"drip tubing using hose end (model A006).
  5. Use 1/2" coupling .700 O.D. (model LF001) to connect additional 1/2" drip tubing, or for repair.
  6. Use plugs (if needed) (model SF007) to repair small holes in the 1/2" drip tubing.
  7. Turn the water on and flush the line, after you flush the line close the end of the 1/2"drip tubing using (model A006) hose end.
  8. Between every four baskets punch a hole in the 1/2" drip tubing using the punch (model A019) and insert a 1-GPH PC dripper (model BG-010 or BG-050).
  9. Onto the dripper’s nipple outlet, press the 4-outlet adapter (model GB-40U).
  10. To each of the adapter outlets connect the 1/8" x 24" micro tubing (model GD-024.) To the end of the micro tubing add the stake (model GD-000) and secure it into the pot.
  11. For a single pot larger than 8" and up to 12", punch a hole in the 1/2" tubing using the punch and insert a .5 GPH PC dripper (model BG-050.) Onto the dripper press the single outlet adapter (model GB-10U) and connect the 1/8" x 24" micro tubing (model GD-024) to the adapter.
  12. To the end of the micro tubing add the stake (model A127) and secure it into the pot, 1-2" from the plant crown.

How much time to water:  Turn the water on for 5 to 10 minutes, and check the system. If you need less or more water adjust the irrigation controller time duration. The goal is that all the potted plants regardless of size will drain at the same time. Program the irrigation controller for about 2 to 4 minutes less than the time it took you to test the system. Run the system every one or two days, depending on your location and the soil type. After a week or two check the pots, soil, the health of the plants, and adjust the irrigation time, as needed.
