The Drip Store’s 1/2” FNPT adapter with 10/32 thread allows a 1/2” riser to be converted into a micro sprinkler system using various micro sprinklers, micro sprayers and micro jets that have 10/32 threads. Using this 1/2” adapter the user may need to convert all other outlets to this method of micro irrigation system. The adapter allows the use of many of our micro sprayers that have a 10/32 thread.
Retrofit accessories including adapters, reducers and extensions are designed to incorporate a drip outlet or system into an existing sprinkler system, by converting a 1/2” riser in the existing system to a drip irrigation outlet, without disturbing the flow of the other sprinklers on the line.
Retrofit drip irrigation is controlled either manually or by using an automatic timer. The retrofit adapter can be used to mount onto the 1/2” riser one of many options of drip emitters to water shrubs, baskets, containers and individual plants that the sprinkler head may not cover sufficiently, while a drip outlet can do it with pinpoint efficiency.
Retrofitting conventional sprinkler systems to low flow, water saving drip systems requires a few simple steps that include the evaluation of the areas to be watered. While large areas such as lawns are best watered by sprinklers, other areas, such as shrubs, roses or individual plants, can be irrigated more efficiently by using one of our retrofit systems.
