How To Install a Drip Irrigation Flow Control Valve

700 SERIES COMPRESSION FLOW CONTROL VALVE: DD-FCV700

The 700 series compression flow control valve from Irrigation Direct is used with drip irrigation to adjust or stop the flow of water through half inch solid tubing or drip emitter tubing. To use, simply the turn handle to the desired positions.

When installing, be sure to match up the drip tubing you are using to the correct compression fitting. 700 tubing uses the 700 fittings.

Look for the black compression rings at either end of the fitting. The black ring indicates 700 size

Installing a compression flow control valve is quick and easy.

To begin, simply cut your drip tubing with a pair of clippers or scissors. Make a straight cut across the pipe to ensure a tight fit. Insert your drip tubing into one end of the compression flow control valve and press inward, rocking the pipe and fitting back and forth. Use your thumb as a guide or score a mark on the tubing with your fingernail about 1 inch up from the end. Push until one inch of tubing is inserted into the fitting

When installing in cold weather, it helps to dip the tubing in warm water for a few minutes to soften the ends.

Compression fittings make a very tight seal and are difficult to pull apart. If you plan to reuse fittings or detach your drip tubing, use our Direct-Loc Flow Control Valve

Direct-Loc fittings are perfect if you need to remove tubing for the winter.

Compression fittings come in several sizes and all are color coded for easy identification. Other common sizes are 620, 710, and for 3/4 drip tubingthe 940 series.

Green rings indicate 620 RainDrip tubing

Blue rings indicate 710 drip tubing

Gray indicates 940 or 3/4 drip tubing

For quarter inch drip tubing, use our 250 series flow control valve.

The FCV700 flow control valve is just one in a full line of half inch compression fittings available from Irrigation Direct.

Coupler
Also called a coupling, it joins fitings and pipe of like size together. Couplers may be slip, threaded, barbed or compression or combination thereof.

Connecting unlike items is called “adapting”. See Adapter.

Compression Fitting
Fittings used to connect lengths of 1/2" and 3/4" drip tubing. The tubing is simply inserted into the compression fitting. Glue is not required. See also Poly Pipe.

 

Goof Plug
Also called mistake plugs, goof plugs are used in drip irrigation to plug up small holes in mainline drip tubing. They are also used as end caps in 1/4" drip micro tubing. It is always good to keep a handful of goof plugs on hand.

ID
Abbreviation for Inside Diameter of pipe.

OD
Abbreviation for Outside Diameter of pipe.

SPRINKLER SYSTEM INFORMATION

Sprinkler irrigation systems are commonly used in lawn irrigation systems and other planted areas where a spray or mist is desirable. For plants that require uniform coverage of water (grass, ground cover, seeds) a sprinkler irrigation system is appropriate.

If you are installing lawn sprinkler irrigation systems, Irrigation Direct carries a variety of supplies and parts like an adjustable nozzles for Rain Bird sprinkler heads. Our shrub adapters are perfect for garden sprinklers and shrub zones.

DRIP IRRIGATION SYSTEM INFORMATIONz

Drip irrigation is a watering method which delivers water to plants slowly and right where they need it at the roots. Where typical pop-up sprinklers spray water into the air and onto plants, drip irrigation systems combine flexible poly drip tubing and drip emitters or "drippers" to both conserve water and save money.

Drip irrigation systems are not affected by wind and will greatly reduce evaporation and runoff common with traditional irrigation systems. Drip irrigation is the perfect solution for raised vegetable garden beds, hanging baskets, and potted plants.
