Regulator / Tee Screen Assembly connects drip tubing or distribution tubing to any ¾” garden hose thread water source. The pressure regulator has a maximum operating pressure of 15 PSI. Consists of commercial grade, UV resistant plastic. Requires NO glue or tools for installation.
To install tape-loc side, simply turn sleeve counter-clockwise, slip tubing over barb, and turn sleeve clockwise to hand tighten for a secure fit. Be sure not to over-tighten the sleeve.
The image to the left demonstrates the Regulator / Tee Screen Assembly being used in one of our Irri-Gator Drip Irrigation Garden Kits. This type of drip irrigation kit is a low pressure system. The pressure regulator helps to limit the pressure of the system while the tee screen adapter allows you to connect to the mainline (which is sometimes referred to as the header). These two fittings assembled together is a great way to start a drip system. This assembly allows you to start your drip system in the middle of your mainline rather than at one end. For larger systems, this is very beneficial to have the water dispersed from the center of the system rather than having to push it entirely from one end.
Another option for pressure regulation is the Regulator / Screen Assembly. This assembly does not split the mainline in two directions. It is used at the beginning of the mainline instead. Your water source will likely be the deciding factor as to which assembly is best for your system layout.
If you are not familiar with our line of Irri-Gator Drip Irrigation Kits, we offer four sizes of drip kits. We also offer additional fittings and accessories to customize a kit to meet your needs. We would be happy to assist you with any questions.
Our goal is to help you get your “Garden Grown Right”!
