The Drip Store’s 3/4" FHT x MHT basic pressure regulator is used to adjust the incoming pressure of up to 80 PSI to a downstream pressure of 15 PSI, providing consistent pressure along the line.
The Drip Store offers a wide range of preset pressure regulators with a preset pressure of 10, 15, 19, 20, 25, 30 and 35 PSI. The Drip store’s range of preset pressure regulators offers exceptional outlet pressure control and provides consistent performance at flow rates from .5 to 12 gallons per minute. All our preset pressure regulators perform to exacting factory specifications. The Drip Store’s preset pressure regulators utilize a minimum of moving parts with a sophisticated diaphragm design that regulates itself in reaction to the overall system back pressure. The high performance pressure regulators are engineered with extra thick industrial strength sidewalls. All of our preset pressure regulators use high strength ABS plastic material and all joints are sonic welded into a tamper-proof and impact-resistant plastic housing. A variety of thread options is available for all installations. The pressure regulator is a device used to reduce and regulate the water pressure entering your drip or micro sprinkler irrigation system to that recommended for the system. Our wide range of high-end 3/4" preset pressure regulators are pressure-reducing devices expressly designed for use in in-line pressure applications. The Drip Store’s line of preset pressure regulators is used for residential, commercial and agricultural applications.
Use the pressure regulator for your irrigation system and install the device after the filter. Choose the correct thread (hose or pipe). The pressure regulator should never be installed on a main line where the device is under constant pressure. In this situation, we recommend installing the pressure regulator after the valve.
Note: A common misconception is that turning a valve or faucet down will reduce the downstream pressure, but this is incorrect; turning the water down only reducers the flow, not the pressure. The pressure remains high.
Most household water pressures are anywhere between 40 PSI and 120 PSI, with some homes even higher. Typically homes will have a pressure regulator (before the water goes to the pipe inside the house that is set at 40 to 70 PSI). Drip irrigation systems are designed to work at an even lower pressure with optimal pressure for a drip system between 20 and 30 PSI, and for drip tape 10 to 25 PSI. If the system is at higher pressure, a problem may occur with the drip emitters, drip tape, micro sprinklers and the fittings such as drip emitters popping off, higher flow from the drip emitters, micro sprinkler components blowing out of the drip tubing and/or lower uniformity. To achieve the proper pressure at the drip lateral a pressure regulator or adjustable pressure regulator may be required.
