Water supply pressure 2 kPa to 300 kPa (0.2 metres to 30 metres).
One inch inlet and outlet.
Maximum flow rate @ 20 kPa (2 metres) of 40 L/M.
Use for sprinkler irrigation or drip irrigation.
Use for gravity feed or pressurised irrigation.
Adjust the dripper (or sprinkler) discharge by adjusting the control dripper.
Adjust the interval between irrigation events by adjusting the length of the polyester skirt.
Responds automatically to on-site evaporation and rainfall.
Irrigate directly from a rainwater tank without using a pump.
