The model K020 Mini Sprinkler Irrigation Kit is a complete kit that has all the parts needed to install a micro sprinkler system from a hose faucet (spigot).
Suggestion in connecting the 1/2" compression drip fittings. To install the 1/2" compression fittings, cut the drip tubing with a hand pruner, being careful to keep dirt from entering the line. Hold the compression fitting in one hand and the drip tubing in the other and force the drip tubing into the fitting by wiggling it from side to side. Make sure that the drip tubing is pushed into the compression fitting for about 1/2 to 5/8 of an inch for a very tight fit. No glue or clamps are required.
This micro sprinkler kit has all the parts needed to start the system connecting to a faucet. The Drip Store also includes instructions on how to start the irrigation system from a PVC pipe or a pipe thread.

Steps to connect all others components:
Micro/mini sprinklers have small droplets and a low flow application rate. Micro/mini sprinkler irrigation can prevent plant stress by maintaining low water tension in the soil using a low flow application rate. Use the micro/mini sprinklers to water individual trees, flowerbeds, or areas where drippers are not practical, such hillsides, or when low volume, overhead irrigation is desired. Like the drippers, the micro/mini sprinklers operate at low pressure but have a larger range of flow rates and diameters.
Note: The pressure regulator (included) is used to lower the incoming pressure to the suggested operating pressure of 25 PSI, which is within the range of recommended pressures for a drip system or micro-sprinkler system.
How much time to water: Turn the water onfor 45 minutes to 1 hour every two days, depending on your location and the soil type. After a week or two check the soil and the health of the plants, and adjust the irrigation time as needed. If you have a controller and you need to add more time, adjust the time on the irrigation controller or program the controller with additional start-times.
