This EF55AS Micro Sprinkler Kit from DIG Corporation includes all the parts, including five large diameter micro sprinklers and two small diameter jets used for a micro sprinkler irrigation system to water rows of trees, flowerbeds or for ground cover up to 250 SF.
See Added Parts to expand your system by purchasing additional pieces separately.
The EF55AS Micro Sprinkler Kit from DIG corporation is a complete kit that contains five 21-GPH micro sprinklers with 360° coverage, two 10-GPH small diameter micro jet sprayers with 360° coverage, 50’ of high quality 1/2” .600 ID x .700 OD drip hose and all the parts needed to install a complete micro sprinkler system for watering ground cover and flowerbeds starting the system from a hose faucet (spigot). The EF55AS kit has the parts to cover up to 250 sq. ft. with an option to expand up to 750 sq. ft using additional drip hose and micro sprinklers.
The 360°, 21-GPH bridged micro sprinkler assembly with green nozzle has coverage of up to 26’diameter @ 25 PSI. The micro sprinkler has additional inserts that can provide 90°, 180° and strip patterns with up to a 12’ diameter. This micro sprinkler assembly is suited for irrigation under tree canopies, and for seedlings, flowerbeds, ground covers, young saplings and mature trees.
The fully assembled micro sprinkler comes with a 13” spike, 24” of 1/4” micro tubing and barb. The 10-GPH micro jet sprayer’s coverage is up to 5' (full circle) and it has interchangeable tips that offer 180° (color code orange) and 90° (color code green) coverage. The micro jet sprayer comes with 10/32 threads that can be threaded into the drip hose or into a poly riser extension model A003 with 6" extension to A126, 16"extension (not included in this kit).
Note: The pressure regulator (included) is used to lower the incoming pressure to the suggested operating pressure of 25 PSI, which is within the range of recommended pressures for a drip system or micro-sprinkler system.
This micro sprinkler kit has all the parts needed to start the system connecting to a faucet. The Drip Store also provides instructions on how to start the system from a PVC pipe or a pipe thread.

Optional: Starting the irrigation system from a PVC pipe:
Steps to connect all other components:
Note:Suggestion for connecting the 1/2" compression drip fittings: To install the 1/2" compression fittings, cut the drip tubing with a hand pruner, being careful to keep dirt from entering the line. Hold the compression fitting in one hand and the drip tubing in the other and force the drip tubing into the fitting by wiggling it from side to side. Make sure that the drip tubing is pushed into the compression fitting for about 1/2 to 5/8 of an inch for a very tight fit. No glue or clamps are required.
Micro sprinklers have small droplets and a low flow application rate. This helps to maintain a low water tension in the soil, preventing plant stress. Use the micro sprinklers to water groundcover, flowerbeds, and areas where drip emitters are not practical, such hillsides, or when low volume, overhead irrigation is desired. Like the drip emitters, the micro sprinklers operate at low pressure, but have a larger range of flow rates and diameters.
How much time to water: Turn the water on for 45 minutes to an hour every two days, depending on your location and the soil type. After a week or two check the soil and the health of the plants, and adjust the irrigation time as needed. If you have an irrigation controller and you need to add more time, adjust the time on the controller or program the controller with additional start-times.
