Hose Inline Filter: DD-HIF75
The Hose Inline Filter from Irrigation Direct is used with Drip Irrigation and is installed between the hose vacuum breaker and the pressure regulator. It helps to protect drip emitters, drippers and soaker hose drip line from rust, sand and other impurities that may clog them. It has a 3/4" female hose thread inlet and a 3/4" male hose thread outlet.
It comes with an internal 120 mesh poly screen and is easily removed for cleaning. Drip systems are less likely to clog if you install proper filtration.
As with all hose threads, no Teflon tape is required. A standard hose washer is used to make a water tight seal.
Installing a hose inline filter is quick and easy.
Simply screw the hose inline filter onto your desired water source below the previously installed hose vacuum breaker. Hand tighten to make a water tight seal.
To clean the internal filter screen, simply unscrew any drip components below the hose filter body. Next, unscrew the hose filter from the water source. Take small screw driver, pencil or even your finger and insert it into the female inlet side of the filter, pushing out the filter screen.
Inspect the screen for any pitting, holes or damage to the filter and clean with a small nylon brush and water. Replacement screens are available if needed DD-HIFRS.
The HIF75 Hose Inline Filter is just one in a full line of professional irrigation product available from Irrigation Direct.
