Drip Irrigation Air Vents & Pressure Regulators

>>Drip Irrigation Air Vents & Pressure Regulators

Drip irrigation air vents and pressure regulators: Pressure Regulators and Pressure Reducing Valves:

Pressure regulators reduce incoming water pressure to a set pressure usable by a drip system. A pressure regulator is used when the incoming pressure is too high for the emitters or fittings. The flow rate of the regulator should be matched with the system. Pressure regulation does not take effect until minimum specified flow passes through the regulator.

Controlling the air in irrigation systems is a means to control the water flow. The most efficient way to control air is by the proper use of air vents.
Both the presence of air, and absence of air, can cause problems or damage irrigation systems.

Trapped air in pipes impedes water flow and can lower watering uniformity. It can also cause water hammer and damage to pipes and fittings. Air in pipes also produces inaccurate readings for water and flow meters. For reliable and accurate water measurement, flow meters require pipes to be full of water.

The absence of air in pipes can trigger contaminates such as mud and dirt to be drawn into the piping system.

  • Poly Tubing for Drip Irrigation Systems

    Polyethylene distribution tubing does not have built-in emitters. This rigid 1" tubing may be used to bring water to the garden or for the mainline to avoid any unnecessary water usage.

  • 5/8" 8mil .25 GPH @ 12" W/ FLAP 1000' , OR .42 GPM PER 100' OF DRIP TAPE

  • Series 3000 Air Vent and Vacuum Relief Valves protect both pressure and gravity systems against pipeline damage by releasing or venting entrapped air during system filling and preventing vacuum locks while the pipeline empties.  This 2" Air Vent is normally installed by threading onto NPT (National Pipe Thread) steel or plastic risers. Brand Name: PiercePierceLogo
  • One of the key elements in a drip irrigation system is air relief. Clogged emitters can create substantial voids in coverage which can lead to dead plants and dry turf. Installing automatic air relief valves on the end of lateral lines and emitter line will prolong the efficiency of your system. Brand Name: JainJainLogo

  • Backflow Preventer (3/4" FHT x 3/4" MHT) A backflow preventer is the effective and economical way to prevent the risk of back-flow contamination from outdoor hose bibb connected devices.  It comes with a 3/4″ FHT inlet and a 3/4″ MHT outlet. No Teflon tape is required since both ends are hose thread. A standard hose washer is included to make a water tight seal.
