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. The retrofit drip heads are available in 12 outlets, and can be used with individual plants or groups of plants as part of any irrigation system.
Our color-coded nozzle is used as an add-on or as a replacement emitter for the 12-outlet drip manifold. The outlet for these manifolds accept 1/8" micro tubing as a standard connection, or may be used with our press-fit 1/4", color coded converter barbs.
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 12- 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 irrigation method. The most suitable uses for retrofit drip systems are for shrubs, trees, roses, or individual plants that can be irrigated more efficiently using these systems.
To install a drip emitter nozzle, remove the cover, then the filter and insert the drip emitter with the 0-ring into one of the twelve open cavities. Make sure that the grooved area on the cone shaped nozzle and the 0-ring are facing upward. The four color-coded nozzles with different flow rates can be combined in the same TOP head.
