The EZ-FLO systems can be installed into a main line of the irrigation system using one of two different connection options (which are sold separately as they must be matched to each specific pipe size and also to ensure proper flow control). The ball valve coupling connectors are available in sizes ranging from 3/4" to 4" with slip x slip connections for gluing into PVC pipe (The Drip Store has in stock only the 3/4" and 1” and can special order all other sizes as needed). They are manufactured from Schedule 40 PVC with 1/4" nylon barbed tubing connections.
The EZ-FLO All-in-One applicators for drip and sprinklers systems are commercial grade automatic fertilization and chemical application systems. These are the best high capacity hose-end feeders available to both consumers and professionals for distributing water-soluble fertilizers and chemicals evenly, at adjustable proportioning rates. The hose thread and drip connection units can attach to any hose bib (the end near the faucet) so the tank doesn't have to be carried with the hose when feeding. The units work with all water soluble and liquid fertilizers, which can be combined in the unit with other chemicals and nutrients to provide "All-In-One" plant and landscape care. This line of applicators has a wide range of accessories for upgrade or replacement and also provides the flexibility to update the system from a residential unit to landscape applications, nurseries or small farms.
The slip x slip coupling connectors with ball valves are used to connect the EZ-FLO system to the irrigation main line PVC pipe before or after the valve using the 1/4" flexible tubing provided with every system. They are required for complex system designs or when the elevation of zone valves downstream from the applicator installation point are at an elevation of 10 feet or more above the installation point, or where the user needs more control over the operation of the applicator unit. The ball valve connectors provide the ability to adjust the differential pressure between the inlet and outlet connections to the flow and can ensure that even the heaviest organic fertilizers and supplements can be pulled from the tank. The ball valve connectors also provide the ability to adjust the differential pressure between the inlet and outlet connection to the irrigation flow line. They are also recommended for any application where higher feed rates are desired or heavier fertilizer/supplement products are used. This is especially important to nurseries and growers where higher proportioning rates are needed. Installation instructions
