The Drip Store’s line of drip zones is the right way to start a drip irrigation system instillation. All the components are included to start the system by connecting the drip zone kit to a PVC pipe thread and then to your drip system. Our drip zone includes a 24 VAC ¾” or 1" inline valve, 155 mesh filter and a pressure regulator.

      Starting the irrigation system from a PVC pipe:

      1.       Glue to a 3/4" PVC pipe a PVC adapter (model P367) (not included).

      2.       Thread the 3/4"  24-VAC 3/4"  valve to the nipple using Teflon tape.

      3.       Connect the 3/4" MNPT filter directly to the valve outlet. Repeat the process using a Teflon tape at the other ends and make sure to remove all the excess of the Teflon tape

      4.       Connect the 3/4" 25 PSI FNPT x MNPT pressure regulator to the filter.

      5.       Connect the 3/4" FNPT swivel adapter to the 3/4" adjustable pressure regulator.

      6.       Connect the wire from the valve to the controller using 18-gage wire with waterproof connection

      7.       Use a 3/4" MNPT adapter model LF085 and thread the adapter to the pressure regulator (not included with this assembly)

      8.       Connect the poly drip tubing to the adapter by wiggling and forcing the drip tubing into the compression side of the adapter.

      9.        Lay out the drip tubing to the garden area. The 1/2" drip tubing is used as the main line for drip systems into which drip emitters, micro sprinklers or 1/4" micro tubing are inserted

      ·         Make sure that the water flow direction matches for each component, if any is in line with the water flow.

      ·         Use Teflon Tape only with the filter and make sure to remove all Teflon tape excess...

      ·         Pressurize the system and make sure that water is not leaking from the unit or any part along the line. Test the assembly manually and then automatically via the controller, and then program the controller.
