  • IMPORTANT steps to take before installation
    Before installing, please make sure you have some form of filtration and pressure regulation installed on your water source. Why is it important: Filtration: without filtration, the couplings and emitters have small openings that can clog with debris or sediments. Pressure regulation: pressure over 45 PSI can blow off the fittings and damage the micro irrigation system over time. You can find a wide variety of inexpensive pressure regulators on Amazon.com or at your local home improvement store. Not all the included pieces need to be installed in one system. In order to offer you a fully customisable irrigation system, we included many more than enough pieces of each kind. Keep the leftover items like spare parts. Naturally, the water pressure in the system drops a bit with every emitter installed. Depending on your water source pressure, you may install a greater or lesser number of emitters until the limit is reached and the water will stop flowing from some of the emitters. Normally, with a water pressure of 45 PSI, a system with a total number of either 20 360 Stream Emitters OR 12 Vortex Emitters should function without problems. Please feel free to experiment and create your unique combination of emitters in the system. Technical Information: The emitters are designed to work with a pressure of between 15 and 45 PSI. Maximum water volume delivered by a single emitter: 360 Stream Vortex 60 Gallons/hour at 45 PSI 45 Gallons/hour at 45 PSI 55 Gallons/hour at 35 PSI 35 Gallons/hour at 35 PSI 45 Gallons/hour at 20 PSI 30 Gallons/hour at 20 PSI Both emitter types have an adjustable range up to a diameter of 3-4 feet. The 360 Stream Emitter delivers water in an array of streams, being ideal for shrubs and trees. The Vortex Emitter evenly covers a full circle, making it perfect for a landscape or garden.
  • Step 1 - Prepare the main line
    The 5/16” Tubing (A) will be the main line line of water. Start at your water source (faucet, hose bib, spigot etc) and attach one 3/4” Female Thread Coupler (E) to it, then connect one end of the 5/16” Tubing to the coupler.
  • Step 2 - Running the needed length
    Run the needed length of 5/16” tubing from the water source through the designated area, between your plants or raised beds.
  • Step 3 - Cutting the main line and attaching the couplers
    Near each group of plants or raised bed, use a good pair of scissors to cut into the main line and install one of the three types of couplers (G, H, or I) according to your needs (with 1, 2, or 3 ways out).
  • Step 4 - Preparing the tubing from the main line to the plant
    Run the needed length of 1/4" distribution tube from the main line to your plant (try not to use more than five feet of tubing per branch).
  • Step 5 - Attaching the emitters
    Connect one end of the 1/4" tube to the barbed coupling and the other to an emitter of your choice (C or D). Make sure the tube covers the barb entirely so it won’t come out when you turn on the water. Obs: The barbs are designed to be slightly larger than the 1/4" tubing to prevent it from sliding back off. If you find it too difficult to push the tube all the way through, soften the tube end by slightly heating it with a heat gun or soak it in hot water. The tubing will slide on very easily and contract over the barb when cools down, sealing the connection.
  • Step 6 - Inserting the emitters
    Insert the emitter’s stake in the ground. Please do not use excessive force. If the ground is too hard, water it a bit to soften it before inserting the stake. Place the emitter so it wets both the plant root and the adjacent soil (the rootball).
  • Step 7 - Install more than one emitter on the same branch
    If you need to install more than one emitter on the same branch, use the scissors to make a cut and use a 1/4” tee splitter (J) to split it. It's best to use one, or at the most two emitters on the same branch to prevent the outflow from being impeded.
  • Step 8 - Closing the ends of the 1/4” tubing
    If for any reason you need to close an end of the 1/4” tubing, you can use a plug (K) to do so. You can close an unneeded way out of a Coupler using a small piece of tubing and a Plug.
  • Step 9 - Opening the water source
    Once all the emitters are installed, with the end of the main line tubing still open, open the water source to flush out any debris or dirt that may have entered the line during installation. Continue flushing until water runs clear and then close it.
  • Step 10 - Closing the main line
    Close the main line tubing with 15/16” Plug (F) and open the water source again.
  • Step 11 - Inspect circuit
    Inspect the entire circuit for leaks or tube kinks. Inspect each emitter and adjust the water flow to desired level by screwing/unscrewing the green cap. It can be adjusted from barely dripping near the stake up to a maximum of 50-60 Gallons/hour with a radius of over 3-4 feet, depending on the water pressure in the system.
  • Where can I use the irrigation system?
    Our Irrigation System can be successfully used to water a vegetable greenhouse. We have included 2 different end plugs, one for the 5/16 inch mainline (2 pcs) and one for the 1/4 inch drip tubing (5 pcs). This will allow you to create the perfect irrigation system for your garden, no matter how many turns or how complicated the landscape is. The Drip Irrigation Kit can be used indoor and outdoor. Our drip kit sprinkler system can be used for potted plants, as a garden dripper for healthy vegetables, a flower bed watering system, a drip system for fruit trees, or a patio drip irrigation kit.
  • How does the Carpathen drip irrigation kit works?
    The Drip Irrigation Kit work by watering the plants directly to the roots. Being connected to a source of water, the tube delivers water to the emitters that direct water to each plant. You can adjust the water volume by rotating the cap and giving your plants the amount they need.
  • How I can unclog the Drip Emitters?
    The drip emitters from the irrigation system have detachable caps so you can easily clean them. In order to avoid clogging, please remove the cap once or twice a year and flush the circuit until the water runs clear. In case of build-up of calcium or lime deposits, you can soak the cap emitters in vinegar and reattach them to the system
  • How I can adjust the Drip Emitters?
    The Drip Irrigation Emitters have adjustable flow. With a rotation of the drip emitter cap, you can easily adjust the amount of water every emitter delivers from a barely dripping near the stake to the maximum of 60 gallons/ hours and a radius of 3-4 feet.
  • What is the maintenance?
    Once or twice a year, remove the emitter caps and flush the circuit until the water runs clear. If you see a build-up of calcium or lime deposits, soak them in vinegar to clear them off. If you live in an area that has freezing temperatures and/or hard frosts, it will be necessary to completely drain your drip system to prevent the lines and other parts that contain water from being damaged. Please thoroughly double-check the 1/4" tubing as kirks can prevent water from draining.
