Maintenance Tips

WINTERIZING

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. Heres how:

1. Turn off the hose bibb.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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.

1. Flush the line annually by unscrewing the end cap at the end of the line.
2. Check filter screen for debris and clean if necessary.
3. Turn on the hose bibb until the water runs clear from the end of the line.
4. Replace the cap.
5. Turn on the hose bibb and check the entire system for leaks.

REPAIR BREAKS & LEAKS

1. Small holes in the line can be plugged with a goof plug.
2. 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.
3. 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).

Tips & Tricks

Upgrade Your Drip Hole Punch & Save Time


A clean cut makes it easier

Some drip irrigation hole punches are shaped like a pencil and simply poke a hole as they push through the drip irrigation tubing. They require more force and can slip off of the drip tubing before they make the hole. The Super Punch (shown here) has a squeeze handle and is only $9.90. A less expensive option is our Deluxe Hole Punch which has a sharp, circular cutting edge. This drip irrigation hole punch is comfortable, easy on your hands, and costs only $3.90.

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.
