Small, simple and economical, flush valves punch way above their weight. Flush valves open when water pressure in the line drops below 2.5 PSI, effectively draining the line when the system shuts off. Draining the line helps prevent prolonged dripping from watering devices, mineral build up, and freeze damage during the winter months. In short, a small investment in flush valve irrigation can pay big dividends in preventing problems down the line.
At DripWorks, we make it easy for you to find the right flush valve. Drip irrigation choices include flush valves are available with either a female hose thread (FHT) or 3/4" female pipe thread (FPT) inlet.

It brought a smile to our faces when the "moment of truth" happened and we turned everything on for the first time. Wow! It all worked, and there were zero leaks. We did need to swap out some of the drippers for those with higher flows, but otherwise, it works like a charm.
