The DSPI series popup drip irrigation flag indicator utilizes a double seal and an extra-large red color indicator which pops up when a drip irrigation system is pressurized and running.
The Pop Up drip irrigation indicators provide a high level of visual confirmation that the irrigation system is running. The large red indicator “pops up” when the valves are open and the system is pressurized. Available in two sizes and with either a ½” MNPT or with 24” micro tubing and barb.
*Install the flag indicator directly into the drip line or drip tubing. Punch a hole into the drip tubing or drip line and insert the barb at the end of the micro tubing into the line. Cover around 2"-4" of the pop up indicator.
Installation for Micro Pop-up Indicators:
Use the DSPI system the same way you would install any other emission device. The device will not emit any water, but when the system is pressurized a red indicator cup will be raised to indicate the system is running.
To install the pop-up indicators use one of the two options:
Installation using drip tubing as the main lateral:
With this layout use the complete assembly micro pop-up indicators with 24” micro tubing and barb. Install the pop-up by punching a hole into the side of the drip tubing and inserting the 1/4" barb into the drip tubing. Mount the pop-up indicator about 2-4” above the ground in a visible area between plants.
Installation using PVC pipe as the main lateral:
With this layout use the complete assembly micro pop-up indicators with 1/2" MNPT. Install the pop-up indicator by installing a PVC tee with 1/2" FNPT and then thread the pop-up into the 1/2" outlet. Mount the micro pop-up indicator about 2-4” above the ground in a visible area between plants.
