To start a drip system from 1/2” drip tubing or 1/4" micro tubing, The Drip Store has created the automated drip zone kits that can be connected to a faucet or PVC pipe. The drip zone kits use a 3/4” electronic hose end timer, back flow device, "Y" filter, 25 PSI preset pressure regulator, and 3/4" FHT adapter for 1/2" drip tubing with .700 OD and 1/4" with .250 OD. Use this automated drip zone kit in any landscape area in residential application

The Drip Store 3/4" Automatic Drip Zone Assembly is available in three models with hose thread for use with 1/2" Drip Tubing or 1/4" Micro Tubing.

The Drip Store provides you with various mounting options to start a drip irrigation installation. Properly designed drip irrigation systems begin with what is called the "drip zone" or the”drip zone assembly, which consists of three vital components:, a back-flow device to prevent contamination from back-siphoning into the water supply, a filter to protect the drip emitters, and a pressure regulator to lower the pressure to the suggested operating pressure for a drip system. This assembly can be attached to a faucet only.

(Note: An optional manual or automatic control valve may be attached between the faucet and the drip zone assembly; an electronic battery operated controller is included in these kits.)

      Starting the irrigation system from a faucet:

      1.       First connect the electronic hose end timer to the faucet, if a backflow device is used, connect the backflow device after the hose end timer.

      2.       Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT backflow device to a timer or directly to the faucet if not used with a hose end timer or a controller.

      3.       Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT filter to the backflow device if used or directly to the controller male outlet or faucet if the backflow device is not used.

      4.       Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT 25 PSI pressure regulator to the filter.

      5.       Connect the 3/4" FHT swivel adapter to the 3/4" FHT x MHT 25 PSI pressure regulator.

      6.       To start the drip system, connect the poly drip tubing to the adapter by wiggling and forcing the drip tubing into the compression side of the adapter and then.

      7.        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 on each component if any is in line with the water flow.

      ·         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.
