Installation for K055

Instructions:

  1. Connect the backflow device (model A015) to faucet.
  2. Connect the pressure regulator (model A013) to the backflow device.
  3. Connect the 3/4" x 1/4" adapter (model A001) to the pressure regulator.
  4. Insert the micro tubing (model T009) into the adapter and run the micro tubing along the baskets and containers, to the last container in the system, up to 15 ft.  
  5. Install an emitter in the last pot and secure in place using a V-stake (S003).
  6. Near each remaining container, install a 1/4" barbed tee (model SF003), then connect the 1/4" micro tubing and install into the pot or basket using stake.
  7. To the end of the 1/4" micro tubing add 1 GPH dripper (model D076).
  8. For baskets larger than 8" and up to 24" in diameter, add a 1/4" tee and install two emitters.

 How much time to water:  Turn the water on for 2 - 5 minutes and note the time it takes for the pots to begin to drain to their overflow trays.  The goal is for all the pots and baskets -- regardless of size -- to drain at the same time. Program the irrigation controller for about 1 - 3 minutes less than the time it took the pots and baskets to start draining.  

Run the system for two to three days a week, depending on your location and the soil type. After a week or two, check the pots and the health of the plants, and adjust the irrigation time and/or number of emitters as needed.
