Description

The solar powered Drip Zone Assembly model VA017 is a drip zone unit made of a solar powered timer with ¾ FHT inlet, ¾” backflow device, ¾ inch filter with 155 mesh screen, 25 PSI preset pressure regulator and a swivel adapter with .700 OD . The drip zone supports installation simplicity with reliable performance and affordable price to start a drip irrigation system from a faucet.

The solar powered Drip Zone Assembly allows for automation of a drip irrigation zone, 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 25 PSI, which is within the range of recommended operating pressures for a drip irrigation system.

The most common method used with drip irrigation installation in home gardening is faucet installation. Begin the installation by connecting the solar powered hose end timer to the faucet first, before the backflow device. This method provides a better balance to the kit assembly when used with hose end timer. Next, attach the filter, then, the pressure regulator and last the swivel adapter that connect the drip zone to the drip tubing.

The solar powered hose end timer in this assembly is the EVO100 from DIG. The hose end timer features a large, easy-to-read LCD screen and simple, icon-based programming with weekly or cyclical programs, four start times per day, durations of up to six hours, program delay of up to 99 days, program off, manual operation, and a sensor wire connection to accept a rain sensor.

Applications

Use this automated drip zone kit in any landscape area or residential application.

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 made of solar powered hose end timer with 3/4 inch FHT, model EVO100, ¾ inch backflow device, ¾ inch 155 mesh screen filter, ¾ inch 25 PSI preset pressure regulator and a ¾ inch swivel adapter to connect the drip zone to the drip tubing.

The backflow device acts as a one-way valve, allowing water to move in one direction only and prevents back siphoning of non-potable or contaminated water into the water lines.

 

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 25 PSI preset pressure regulator is used to reduce and regulate the incoming pressure of the household water entering a drip irrigation or micro sprinkler system to the appropriate operating pressure range of 25 PSI, which is within the range of recommended operating pressures for a micro irrigation system.

 

The 3/4" FHT swivel adapter is used for the connection of ½ inch drip tubing to any hose thread fitting with 3/4” male hose threads.

 

Connecting to a Faucet

  1. 1. First connect the solar powered electronic hose end timer to the faucet, if a backflow device is used, connect the backflow device after the hose end timer.
  2. 2. Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT backflow device to the hose end timer or directly to the faucet if not using with a hose end timer.
  3. 3. Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT filter to the backflow device or directly to the controller male outlet or faucet if the backflow device is not used. Do not use Teflon tape in any of the connections.
  4. 4. Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT 25 PSI pressure regulator to the filter.
  5. 5. Connect the 3/4" FHT x .700 OD compression adapters to the pressure regulator.
  6. 6. To start the drip system, connect the drip tubing to the adapter by wiggling and forcing the drip tubing into the compression side of the adapter, and then lay out the drip tubing 

Note: Make sure that the water flow direction in each component is in line with the water flow of the system.

  1. 7. Turn the faucet on and test the assembly via the timer manual button. Check that the system is working and that there are no leaks.
  2. 8. Program the controller. 

Note: See product specifications under individual product lines.
