The Drip Irrigation and Mist Retrofit Kit Model MD50 made by DIG Corporation is designed to retrofit a 1/2" riser under a sprinkler into a drip irrigation system without affecting the sprinkler performance. The MD50 Drip and Mist Irrigation Retrofit kit is used for watering up to 6 planters, containers, and pots that are close to the sprinkler riser. This drip and mist irrigation kit can start from any sprinkler riser. The drip and mist irrigation kit includes a 1/2" FNPT inlet and MNPT outlet with a side 1/4" barbed elbow, 50’ of high quality 1/4” micro tubing, two foggers, four adjustable drippers and all the components needed to install the kit.
Drip irrigation is the slow application of water directly to the plants' root zone in a predetermined pattern. Maintaining an optimum moisture level in the soil at all times results in less water lost to the sun and the wind. No water is wasted on non-growth areas, and the root zone is maintained at its ideal moisture level, combining the proper balance of water and air for a very efficient irrigation system.
One of the most important features of a drip irrigation system is the creation of a totally new and more favorable root zone environment within the planting. Drip irrigation sustains this environment by using low flow rates to maintain constant soil moisture levels. This encourages better growth and disease resistance by reducing plant stress.
See installation instructions inside for details.
How much time to water:
For a mix of sprinklers and a drip irrigation system:If the irrigation system is comprised of pop up sprinklers and one or more drip irrigation heads, then turn the water onfor the same time that the sprinkler system was running. After a week or two check the soil and the health of the plants, and adjust the location of the drip outlets. If more water is needed, add additional outlets 6 to 10” from
