Questions & Answers

Could these be placed on a 1" main line and then a 1/2 inch fitting be added to reduce the size?

My T fitting was 3/4" x 3/4" x 1/2" and I mounted it on 3/4" line.

When I bury it, will it be protected by dirt or do I have to slide a piece of 3 inch PVC over it?

There is a few inches of gravel surrounding it. 25 years of work have been put into it.

The application is very unique How does it feel to turn on the water and have a "spurt" come out of the valve? How long does it take for the valve to close (before it actually does)?

The valve may have been closed by the pressure before the valve opened or maybe it was closed by nothing. In a nutshell, when the water is shut off and the pressure is reduced, the valve will drain as much water from the pipe as gravity permits.

This is my first time doing irrigation. For this to be connected to the 1/2" distribution pipe, what adapter is needed?

It is 1/2" high, and there is no need for anything else

With the new system, the water no longer sits in the pipes, getting hot all day, but gets drained away neatly at the end of the pressure cycle
5/5

The plants would probably agree that they would prefer a cold shower to a hot one, so its a nice choice for them.

As expected, the deliveries arrived and the work was completed as promised
5/5

Installing this drain system at the beginning of winter should prevent the system from freezing.

I give it five stars
5/5

This can be used as a vacuum breaker in the solar heating system of a pool. Hopefully next spring it will be just as good.

This is a fantastic device
5/5

Sprinkler lines can be dug shallowly with this tool. I love the device. It allows you to dig shallow sprinkler lines as long as one of these is at the lowest point on the.

Worked for me
5/5

It's easy to install and seems to work like expected, but time will tell whether it will hold up.

Draining by automatic means
5/5

It has provided me with a great deal of value for the last four years. It does what it says it will. The zone where it is located must be located at the lowest point. It is recommended to fill the "pit" where the product should be placed with gravel or something that won't clog the product with dirt.
