WITH DESIGNS" page.
Measure and sketch out your design. This way you
will be able to tell what fittings and how many of each you will need, how much
poly tubing and how much soaker hose. It is always wise to buy extra fittings.
From your faucet, you can attach the following:
Timer, Backflow device, Filter, Pressure Regulator, Female hose end. Also
referred to as a "Connection Assembly" See examples below.
Soaker hose and Poly/Mainline Tubing can be laid
in the sun, this will make it a little easier to work with.
Layout your poly and soaker hose in desired
lengths where they will be used and place fittings where they will go.
Use stakes to hold your tubing in place.
When you are ready to assemble, you simply push
and twist your fittings onto your soaker hose and poly tubing.
On the ends of your line, if you are using the
.580 standard hose, you will need a coupling and cap. If using the deluxe .700
or professional .820, you will need an end cap.
Before using your system, you need to flush it
out. This will remove any debris that has gotten into your system during
When you are ready to turn your system on, just
turn your faucet a half of a turn.
We also have a
video to show
you how to put a system together.
