This 4-outlet drip manifold is a high flow emission device that has four outlets with each outlet discharge a flow rate of 6 GPH. This 4-outlet manifold from DIG is available with barbed elbow outlet. By converting your sprinkler system to a drip system you can reduce evaporation, pest problems and weed growth, eliminate runoff, and have healthier plants.
The Drip Store’s retrofit systems can be used to convert an existing sprinkler head to a drip system without altering the flow or other capabilities of the original design. These retrofit drip heads are available in 4- outlet with barb or with barbed elbow that can be used with individual plants or groups of plants as part of any irrigation system.
Retrofit drip heads or manifolds are designed to adapt any 1/2" riser to a drip irrigation system. They may be incorporated into a new system, or used to convert an existing sprinkler to a 4- outlet drip system. Retrofitting conventional sprinkler systems to low flow water saving drip systems requires a few simple steps that include evaluation of the areas to be watered and selection of the best method to water. The most suitable uses for retrofit drip systems are shrubs, trees, roses, pots, or individual plants that can be irrigated more efficiently using this system.
Retrofitting a conventional sprinkler system to a low flow, water saving drip irrigation system requires a few simple steps:
Step 1: Evaluate the areas to be watered. While large areas such as lawns are best watered by sprinklers, other areas, such as shrubs, trees, roses, or individual plants, can be irrigated more efficiently by using the retrofit drip heads.
Step 2: Remove the sprinkler head from the riser.
Step 3: Turn the water on and flush the line.
Step 4: Screw the 4-outlet drip head onto the riser.
Step 5: extend a 1/4” micro-tubing from the drip head to the plants or combine the micro tubing with 1/4" drip line
Step 6: Secure the 1/4"" micro-tubing with a 1/4" stake and insert the stake to ground near the plant area
