The Install

Overview

  • We have all types of customers from single moms to seniors (even into their 70’s) installing these systems. Push-to-connect connections, online and DVD easy instructions make it a breeze. No need to be an engineer or a home builder. People from all walks of life buy and install to get relief and are finally able to enjoy their property.
  • If worried about how to set up the controller, don't.  Not only is it easy and logical, we include a video on our DVD showing what to do, step by step.  It's a non-issue.
  • We include the items needed for a typical install, including a tubing cutter, Dynaclamps, and a release tool used to remove tubing from the push-on fittings.
  • Parts are push-to-connect except tubing clamps, they attach using pre-set screws. (quick & easy)
  • When installing tubing clamps, a cordless drill (not included) is a huge help.
  • We include a free How-To DVD, it will be included with your order
  • We also include links to the factory free online tech self-help, & videos and a downloadable manual so you can have a manual on an electronic device.

Determine the area you want to protect

Measure it’s perimeter and divide by 10, that is your nozzle count. Nozzles are placed around the perimeter of your area spaced 10 feet apart, but anywhere between 8 and 12 feet is fine. Exact placement is most often determined by mounting opportunities. For more information see "The Nozzles."

Place the system* within 10 feet of a GFI protected electrical outlet and within 25 feet of a hose connection.  Run the tubing to the system, cut to shorten if desired. Push it in real good, make sure it goes in all the way.

Insert the smaller tubing into the system’s "out" port and run it to your first nozzle location. Cut the tubing to length and push on a Tee. Use a tubing clamp to secure the tubing as needed. Push fresh tubing into the other side of the Tee and continue to the second nozzle location and secure. Add a Tee then continue this way for each nozzle location.

Watch the DVD for easy step by step instructions to set the controller up. You'll set the date and time, tell the system how many nozzles you've installed and set up mist times. No problem, we send you suggested mist times and durations dealers across the USA have found to work best.  It is up to you if you want to do the same or tweak them to your liking.

After all nozzle locations are finished and the controller is programmed the system is turned on to let water run through the freshly installed tubing cicuit. If any dirt got into the tubing, it will now exit out the open Tee ports. Once flushed, go ahead and push in a nozzle into each of the tees. The system will build pressure and begin to mist water. 


If installing Risers, the above method is the same except instead of using clamps on a fence or other structure, you’ll stick the Riser into the ground and then move to the next location and repeat.


*The system unit comes with 25 feet of 3/8” tubing to connect the system to your hose bib. We also include a brass "Y" so you won’t have to give up your hose outlet.
