Micro sprinklers hanging upside down from the ceiling are a concept that offers a very efficient way to water and can be designed for almost any bench width. This inverted, hanging method of watering prevents wetting the supply line, which when soaked can cause drip damage to the plant below. The anti-leak device prevents the micro sprinkler from draining the supply line at the end of the irrigation cycle.Designed to irrigate or propagate in greenhouse benches and beds in inverted position, these units provide the added benefit of keeping the benches clear of lateral pipes and prevent damage to the micro sprayers by any machinery being used. The completely assembled unit includes an anti-leak device that prevents dripping at the end of the irrigation cycle and keeps the lateral lines under pressure at all times, saving water and fertilizer that would otherwise be wasted as water drains the line.


Another feature of inverted micro sprinklers is that a stabilizer weight maintains the sprinkler in perfect position relative to the bench. In addition, there are no micro sprinkler heads to trip over, providing a safer and more efficient working environment. The micro sprayers provided by The Drip Store are suitable for all applications in the irrigation of seedlings, germination and propagation in benches or for row plantings in greenhouses applications. Used in an upright position with low application rate, the 360-degree micro sprayers have excellent uniformity under a wide range of pressures using a triangular or rectangular spacing layout.
