This kit contains everything you will need to connect to a hose bib (faucet) with a Y filter. For an inline filter, buy our DK-WSCI kit. From there you can buy a drip irrigation kit to water your landscape, garden, or containers.
You will attach a Y Ball Valve, Filter, Pressure Regulator, and Hose Thread Swivel to the faucet or garden hose. Note: Most new home construction codes require the installation of a hose vacuum breaker on all exterior faucets. If you do not have a hose vacuum breaker installed, you should purchase a Hose Vacuum Breaker and install it it between the Y Ball Valve and the filter.
A Hose End Timer can also be purchased separately.

Drip Irrigation Kit Installation Manual
Drip Irrigation System Water Source Connection Kit for Hose Bibb with Y Filter
This kit contains everything you will need to connect to a hose bib (faucet) with an inline filter. For an inline filter, buy our DK-WSCI kit. From there you can buy a drip irrigation kit to water your landscape, garden, or containers.
You will attach a Y Ball Valve, Filter, Pressure Regulator, and Hose Thread Swivel to the faucet or garden hose. Note: Most new home construction codes require the installation of a hose vacuum breaker on all exterior faucets. If you do not have a hose vacuum breaker installed, you should purchase a Hose Vacuum Breaker (DD-HVB) and install it.
If you want to automate your drip system, a Hose End Timer can also be purchased separately.
Connecting to the Hose Bibb
- Screw the Y Ball Valve (DD-YBV75) onto the hose bibb (faucet).
- If your hose bibb does not have a hose vacuum breaker already installed, screw a Hose Vacuum Breaker (DD-HVB)(not included) onto the Y Ball Valve.
- Note: If you have purchased an optional Hose End Timer (DD-HEDT) screw it onto the Y Ball Valve first. Then attach the Hose Vacuum Breaker or filter to the Hose End Timer.
- Screw the Y Filter (DD-YS75HFM) on next.
- Screw the Regulator (DD-HPR25-HQ) onto the filter.
- Screw the Direct-Loc Swivel Adapter (DL-FHS600) onto the pressure regulator.
You are now ready to attach your drip poly tubing.
If you live where it freezes, it is a good idea to drain the water from your drip lines and the components connected to the water source. Here’s how:
- Turn off the hose bibb.
- If you have a hose-end timer installed, let the system run through a watering cycle. This will open the timer and let any remaining water drain out of the timer and other components & into the drip tubing.
- If you do not have a timer installed, unscrew the drip system from the hose bibb for a few minutes to let air into the line. Reattach the line after a minute or two.
- Note: We do not recommend blowing compressed air though a drip system.
FLUSH THE LINE ANUALLY
Since drip systems operate at low pressures, sediment can settle in the line over time.
- Flush the line annually by unscrewing the end cap at the end of the line.
- Check filter screen for debris and clean if necessary.
- Turn on the hose bibb until the water runs clear from the end of the line.
- Replace the cap.
- Turn on the hose bibb and check the entire system for leaks.
REPAIR BREAKS & LEAKS
- Small holes in the line can be plugged with a goof plug.
- For larger breaks or holes in the 1/4” drip tubing, make a clean cut around the damaged area and reconnect the lines with a 1/4” barbed connector (DD-C250) purchased separately.
- For larger breaks or holes in the 1/2” drip tubing, make a clean cut around the damaged area and reconnect the lines with a 1/2” Direct-Loc coupling (DL-C600).
