The D070 12-Outlet PC Drip Irrigation Manifold Kit contains the parts needed to retrofit a ½ inch sprinkler riser into a drip irrigation layout to cover up to twelve plants or 8 to 10 boxes or containers of up to 12 inch in diameter. If using a ¼ inch micro tubing, it can be extended from the micro tubing with the addition of a ¼ inch drip line to a length of up to 4 feet.
The D070 kit can be used to apply water directly to the root zone area of the plant, reducing water waste from evaporation and run off, pest problems, and weed growth. The kit contains a pressure compensating, self-cleaning 12-outlet drip manifold for even uniformity from each outlet, 100' of 1/8 inch micro tubing, 12 stakes to secure the micro tubing, 12 bug plug to protect the end of the 1/8 inch micro tubing, 8 caps to close unused nozzles and converter barbed, if used with ¼ inch micro tubing. The 12-outlet manifold can be used to cover individual plants or closely spaced groups of plants within the layout. This kit is a complete kit containing all the parts required to install a complete system.
The 12-outlet manifold can apply water to most landscape gardens utilizing the same short range watering cycles as are used with spray heads to meet most watering applications
○ Step 2: First, remove the sprinkler head from the ½ inch riser, turn the water on momentarily, and flush out the riser. Then turn the water off and screw the drip head manifold (model # D073) onto the 1/2" riser.
○ Step 3: Push and insert the end of the 1/8 inch micro tubing (model # T019) into the drip head’s outlet and run the micro tubing to the plant location.
○ Step 4: If not using all the outlets, remove the cover, then remove the screen disc and use one of the rubber caps ( model # D075) to close any of the unused outlets.
○ Note: If needed, use the ¼ inch converter barb (model # D064) to adapt the drip head outlets into a ¼ inch micro tubing.
○ Step 5: Secure the end of the micro tubing near the plant using the stabilizer stake included (model # A127). (Repeat the steps with the other eleven outlets.)
○ Note If needed, a nozzle can be replaced by pulling the nozzle out and inserting a new one (see replaceable nozzle (model D069).
○ Note Note: The micro tubing can be buried or covered with mulch, but the end should be left above ground.
○ Step 6: Turn the water on and make sure that each of the outlet locations is providing the coverage desired, and, if necessary, move the stake locations closer to the plants.
For a mix of sprinklers and drip irrigation manifolds: If the irrigation system is comprised of pop up sprinklers and one or more drip irrigation heads then turn the water on for the same time that the sprinkler system was running. After a week or two check the soil and the health of the plants, and adjust the location of the drip outlets. If more water is needed, add additional drip irrigation outlets 6” to 10” from the plants.
