Description

The 9 VDC Drip Irrigation Zone Assembly model VA040 is a drip irrigation zone composed of a 9 VDC solenoid with 3/4 inch inline valve, 3/4 inch filter with 155 mesh screen and a 30 PSI preset heavy duty pressure regulator. The drip irrigation zone supports installation simplicity with reliable performance and affordable price to start a drip irrigation system. The 9 VDC Drip Zone Assembly unit allows for automation of a drip irrigation zone when connecting to our two, four or six station battery operated controllers model 720A, 740A and 760A, provides protection to the drip emitters and micro sprinklers from particles that may enter the system, and reduces or regulates the incoming pressure of the water entering the micro irrigation system to the appropriate operating pressure of 30 PSI, which is within the range of recommended operating pressures for a drip irrigation system.

Drip Zone Assembly Installation

Drip irrigation requires clean water and proper operating pressure.

The cause of most drip irrigation system failures is either high pressure or clogged drip emitters, therefore a screen filter and a pressure regulator are the most important components in the micro irrigation system.

This drip zone kit provides the user with a complete kit that includes 3/4 inch, 9 VDC solenoid with inline valve, ¾ inch 155 mesh screen filter and heavy duty 30 PSI preset pressure regulator.

The 9 VDC solenoid with inline valve operates with any two wire, 9 volt battery operated controllers.

The screen filter is a simple and economical method for protecting a drip irrigation system. Periodically the filter screen needs to be cleaned by opening the filter cover, removing the screen, and rinsing the screen under water.

The 30 PSI heavy duty preset pressure regulator is used to reduce and regulate the incoming pressure of the households water entering a drip irrigation or micro sprinkler system to the appropriate operating pressure range of 30 PSI, which is within the range of recommended operating pressures for a micro irrigation system.

  • Installation into a PVC pipe or to pipe thread
  • 1. If the installation is into a PVC pipe, first shut off the main water supply.
  • 2. We recommend installing a 3/4 inch ball valve or gate valve before the drip zone kit. This ball valve can be very useful as an emergency backup to turn the system off. This type of arrangement is used by professional installers.
  • 3. Turn the water supply on to flush the line and then shut the water supply off using the new ball valve or gate valve.
  • 4. Install the 9 VDC Drip Zone Assembly Kit below or above ground wrapping TEFLON tape on all the male thread fittings used.
  • Note: Make sure water flow direction matches each component
  • 5. Turn the water supply on again to pressurize the system. The unit will open momentarily and then will shut off.
  • 6. If the system is continued with drip tubing then add to the pressure regulator outlet a ¾ inch swivel adapter with pipe thread, model LF503 and connect the ½ inch drip tubing to the adapter.
  • 7. If the system is continued with a PVC pipe then, connect to the pressure regulator outlet a ¾ inch PVC female threaded x slip adapter and glue it to the PVC pipe.
  • 8. Test the valve using the manual bleed. Check that the system is working and that there are no leaks.
  • 9. Connect the 9 VDC solenoid red and white wires to any multi station battery operated controller common and station # wire using waterproof slice connector and then program the controllers.
