The K027 Mini Sprayer Stake Kit is The Drip Store’s custom designed kit specially designed for nurseries and greenhouses with large pots, containers and baskets. The kit contains a digital battery-operated controller, 200’ of high quality 1/2" drip hose with .600” ID x .700” OD and all the parts needed to install mini sprayer stakes for 50 pots, containers and baskets.

The watering components include, 25 90-degree mini spray stakes (Gray) with a flow rate of 3.6-gallons per hour (GPH) at 25 PSI and 25 160-degree mini spray stakes (orange) with a flow rate of 4.8-gallons per hour (GPH) at 25 PSI. This is a complete kit that can be expanded to up to 70 containers, pots and baskets of up to 10” in diameter using the 90 degree mini sprayer stakes, and up to 15” diameter using the 160 degree mini sprayer stakes.

The Drip Irrigation Mini Spray Stake Kit contains everything needed to implement a system from the controller to the end of the line. Included in the kit are a 3/4" filter, a 25-PSI pressure regulator, 1/8” micro tubing to feed the mini spray stakes, and all the fittings and accessories needed to install the system. This system requires assembly of the mini spray stakes to the micro tubing.

  • Maximum incoming operating pressure: 100 PSI
  • Mini spray stake flow rate: 3.6 (gray) and 4.8 gallons per hour (orange)
  • Operating pressure: 25 PSI
  • Recommended filtration: 150 mesh
  • Suggested number of mini spray stakes per container: 1

Installation for K027

 

 This Mini Sprayer Stake Kithas all the parts needed to start the irrigation 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 controller (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 other 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 adaptor connect the 200’ 1/2" drip tubing with .600 ID x .700 OD (model T060) and run the drip tubing to the nursery, or perpendicularto the rows of the containers and pots.
  3. Near the center of each row 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 1/2" elbow (model LF007). To the tee or elbow connect the 1/2" drip tubing and lay it along the center of each row.
  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" pipe, or for repair.
  6. Use plugs (if needed) (model SF007) to repair small holes in the 1/2" drip tubing.
  7. Determine the length of micro tubing required to reach from thedrip-tubing lateral to the desired location of the mini spray stake.Length should be adequate to accommodate thermal expansionand contraction of laterals, but should not exceed 5 feet.
    1. Cut one end (insertion end) of the micro tubing at a 45º angle and the oppositeend at a 90-º angle.
    2. Confirmthat both cuts are clean to ensure a watertight fit. A clean45º cut facilitates insertion and reduces the chance of a micro tubingblockage if inserted too deeply. A clean 90º cut ensures aproper flow pattern when fitted to the mini spray stake tip.
    3. Near each container, basket or pot punch a hole in the 1/2" drip tubing using the punch (model A019) and insert the end of the 1/8” micro tubing (model T300.) Use the hole-punch to create a hole in the lateraldrip tubing by pushing and twisting the punch into the hose. The hole-punch has been specially designed to quickly create a large, clean hole that contracts within a moments tocreate a leak-proof seal around the inserted tubing.
    4. Immediately after punching a hole, insert the angled insertion endof the micro tubing into the hole. Push until the angledend penetrates to about one third the diameter of the drip tubing. No glue or 1/8” fittings are needed. IMPORTANT: the angled insertion end of the tubing must not touch theopposite side of the hose, as this may block the flow.

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 time on the irrigation controller. 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.
