In our simplified example meant for light duty smaller scale lawns we will be using a lighter duty tubing and perma-lock fittings.  We will also be using a simple hose end timer to run the system.  Keep in mind you can also use Blu-Lock for this system, which we will also price out.  

Lets now revisit our simplified layout using MP Rotators for the Garden Zone.

 

Zone 1

  1. MP2000-90    - 25.8    gph (90 degrees)

3.   MP2000-90    - 25.8    gph (90 degrees)

9.   MP3000-90    - 109.2  gph (180 degrees)

13. MP3000-90    - 51.6    gph (90 degrees)

                 Total      212.4  gph

 

Head 13 would likely require a riser to increase the height of the head broadcast the spray above any plants an foliage, but this is easily done and a common practice.

 

Zone 2

2.   MP3000-90    - 51.6    gph (90 degrees)

14. MP3000-90    - 51.6    gph (90 degrees)

10. MPLCS515    - 13.2    gph  (5 x 15 Left Corner)

11. MPSS530       - 26.4    gph  (5 x 30 Centre Strip)

12. MPRCS515    - 13.2    gph  (5 x 15 Right Corner)

                 Total      156     gph

Now we need Spray Heads for each of the Nozzles.  Since we based all of our calculations on using a 40 PSI Pressure Regulating, this is the product we will choose.

We now need our Connection Fittings for each of the spray heads.  For this we will need to revisit our zone layout diagram.

 

This is obviously very simple, but we will be using ¾” Perma-Lock fittings to make it even easier.  We will however use Dawn Quick Tap Saddles for our in-line Spray Bodies (1,3,10,11,13, and 14), and Insert Fittings for our end of line Spray Bodies (2,9, and 12)

 

KT007C – For the inline heads

1407-101 – For end of line heads

That cover all we need for installing the spray heads and nozzles.  Now we’ll move on to tubing and layout fittings.  We will be using ¾” tubing throughout this design which would be common for a layout of this size.

DD-DH940-100 – 100 ft. Roll of ¾” Solid Tubing

We will now look at fittings for the tubing.  In this example there are very few fittings required and they are simple to see.  For sharp corners we need elbows and for T’s for Tee’s.  All Blu-Lock fittings can be found HERE.
