DK-GFCW-L - Gravity Feed Drip Irrigation Kit for Clean Water - LRG
This kit contains everything you will need to build a gravity feed drip irrigation system. Waters up to 50 plants. Our popular non-pressure compensated "Take Apart Emitter" (TAE) are designed to attach directly to the 1/2” drip tubing or to the end of 1/4” micro tubing. The number of plants that can be watered with each kit is an estimate based on the total number of drip emitters provided in the kit. Larger plants should get at least two drip emitters (drippers). If you want to automate your drip system, a Hose End Timer can be purchased separately.

About Gravity Feed Drip Systems
Drip irrigation products are designed for use with constant pressure of 15 - 30 psi. Since the pressure with a gravity system is often well below this range, and drops as the system operates, emitter flow rates will be substantially less than those specified for the individual emitter. Output will also vary between emitters on the same line of drip tubing as they are placed farther away from the water source. We have done extensive testing in order to help you design an efficent gravity feed system. Please read the detailed instruction guide before planning and installing your gravity feed system.
