Emitters, Components and Tools

Our drip kits are equipped with our range of unique emitters and components. We use high quality materials in the manufacturing process to ensure that our products are durable and long lasting. Our barbed hose connectors (push-fit) feature a consistent through-bore so there are no restrictions to hinder water flow within our irrigation systems.

Emitters, Components and Tools

Emitters

Crank Handle Drill

SqueezeMe2 Emitter

The speciality SqueezeMe2™ Emitter is an adjustable emitter which allows different volumes of water to irrigate your plants with water from any source, such as harvested rainwater. Particles that usually clog up traditional emitters flow freely through the SqueezeMe2™ Emitter, however any particles that do get stuck can be flushed out by simply ‘squeezing’ the sides of the emitter.

Supplied as standard in all of our Drip Kits.

Application:

  • Use as a dripper/emitter at the outflow end of a Lateral Hose (0506).
  • Use a Straight Connector (0502) to join the hose to the emitter.
  • Slide and rotate the adjustable collar to achieve high-flow, medium-flow, and low-flow watering.

NOTE: The emitter is supplied unassembled – the two components (emitter body and adjustable collar) push together.


Components

5mm Straight Connector

5mm Straight Connector

The Straight Connector (5mm) connects seemlessly to the Lateral Hose. Supplied as standard in all our drip irrigation kits. It is a multipurpose item with the following uses.

Applications:

  • Joining lengths of 5 mm bore Lateral Hose (0506).
  • Sealing inside the Uni Tank Connector (0500).
  • Connecting Dripper/Emitter valves to Hose (0506).
  • Adding a 5mm bore side branch outlet in a Distribution Hose (1306) (using the Hole Punch 0805).

5mm Tee

5mm Tee

The Tee (5mm) connects seamlessly to the Lateral Hose. Supplied as standard in our 10 Emmiter, 30 Emitter, 30 Emitter Extension, 60 Emitter, and 60 Shrub Drip Kits. It is a dual purpose, equal Tee which allows a constant flow of water.

Applications:

  • Joining lengths of Lateral Hose (0506) to provide a same sized 5mm bore side branch.
  • Tapping into a side hole punched into a Distribution Hose (1306) to provide two 5mm bore side branch outlets. Use Hole Punch (0805).

5mm Slide Valve

5mm Slide Valve

The Slide Valve temporarily shuts off water flow on the flexi hose. Use as a handy ON and OFF tap, ANYWHERE along the length of the Lateral Hose (0506) without cutting into the hose. Supplied as standard in our 10 Emitter, 30 Emitter, 30 Emitter Extension, 60 Emitter, and 60 Shrub Drip Kits.

Applications:

  • Pinch the hose where you want to stop water flow, and slide on the slide valve to pinch the hose at that position.
  • To resume the water flow, slide the Slide Valve back to the neutral position (hose is held in circular cross-section).

5mm Ground Stake

5mm Ground Stake

The Ground Stake secures the flexi hoses into the ground. The Ground Stake for 5mm hose pegs down and secures the Lateral Hose. Use as required. Supplied as standard in our 10 Emitter, 30 Emitter, 30 Emitter Extension, 60 Emitter, and 60 Shrub Drip Kits.

Applications:

  • Can accommodate one or two 5mm bore hose cross-sections simultaneously.

13mm Straight Connector

13mm Straight Connector

The Straight Connector (13mm) connects seamlessly to the Distribution Hose. Supplied as standard in our 300 Emitter, 200 Emitter Extension, 500 Emitter, and 60 Shrub Drip Kits. It is a dual purpose item with the following uses.

Applications:

  • Joining lengths of 13mm bore Distribution Hose (1306).
  • This is the same component as used in the Four Way Tank Connector (1301).

13mm Elbow

13mm Elbow

The Elbow (13mm) connects seamlessly to the Distribution Hose. Supplied as standard in the Shrub Drip Kit. It is a dual purpose item with the following uses.

Applications:

  • Joining lengths of 13mm bore Distribution Hose (1306).
  • This is the same component as used in the Four Way Tank Connector (1301).

13mm Tee

13mm Tee

The Tee (13mm) connects seamlessly to our Distribution Hose. Supplied as standard in our 300 Emitter, 200 Emitter Extension, 500 Emitter, and 60 Shrub Drip Kits. It is an equal Tee which allows a constant flow of water.

Applications:

  • Use as a connector to join lengths of Distribution Hose (1306) and to provide equal-size, side branch connections.

13mm Slide Valve

13mm Slide Valve

The Slide Valve temporarily shuts off water flow on our flexi hose. Use as a handy ON and OFF tap, ANYWHERE along the length of Distribution Hose without cutting into the hose. Supplied as standard in our 300 Emitter, 500 Emitter, and 60 Shrub Drip Kits.

Applications:

  • Pinch the hose where you want to stop water flow, and slide on the slide valve to pinch the hose at that position.
  • To resume the water flow, slide the slide valve back to the neutral position (hose is held in circular cross-section).

13mm Ground Stake

13mm Ground Stake

The Ground Stake secures the flexi hoses into the ground. The Ground Stake for 13mm hose pegs down and secures our Distribution Hose. Use as required. Supplied as standard in our 300 Emitter, 200 Emitter Extension, 500 Emitter, and 60 Shrub Drip Kits.

Applications:

  • Use as required.

13mm End Loop

13mm End Loop

Our End Loop can be placed over our Distribution Hose when doubled over to stop the water flow. Use to close off the end of 13mm bore Distribution Hose (1306). Fold 150mm of the hose end back on itself to form a kink and then slide the End Loop onto the doubled hose to about the mid-point to maintain the kink. Supplied as standard in our 300 Emitter, 200 Emitter Extension, 500 Emitter, and 60 Shrub Drip Kits.

Applications:

  • Slide the End Loop off temporarily to purge out the hose.
  • Or slide off End Loop permanently to extend the hose network, and reinstall at the new end of line.
  • NOTE: If you are short of these End Loops they can be cut in half to provide two 25 mm long End Loops from each 50 mm length.
  • Supplied in cut lengths of 50mm


Tools

Crank Handle Drill

Crank Handle Drill

Use the Crank Handle Drill to cut holes in plastic walled tanks.

Cuts 12mm and 38mm diameters for installing the Uni Tank Connector Kit or the Four Way Tank Connector and Sight Tube.

For best results, remove burrs after drilling, but do not enlarge the holes beyond either 12mm or 38mm diameter - depending on the hole size required.

Hole Punch

Hole Punch

Use the Hole Punch to ensure an easy and precise hole in the Distribution Hose.

The Hole Punch ensures that the correct diameter that is required to connect the fittings is made. Compared with most traditional drip irrigation systems which have a predetermined hole spacing, the Hole Punch now allows the user to decide on hole spacing for an irrigation layout adapted around their growing requirements.

Use to hand punch holes in a 13mm bore Distribution Hose to make side branches, in order to connect a Straight Connector or Tee, to add lengths of Lateral Hose.

NOTE: Comprises a moulded handle, two retaining clips, and one cutting tips.
