    Poorly constructed

    Lasted less than 2 weeks here on the farm. Began sporadically not switching over, then after another week quit working altogether.

Description

Don't buy another expensive timer or build a complex manifold! Simply attach our hose threaded Galcon Alternator Valve to your spigot or timer to instantly double coverage of your drip irrigation system.

Features:

  • Outlet switches with each timer cycle
  • Rugged, impact-resistant construction
  • Ideal for remote applications
  • Female hose thread inlet and male hose threat outlets

This Alternator Valve is not a timer, and does not require batteries or a power source. It is simply powered by the water moving through it. Place the Alternator Valve downstream of a timer or valve and it will alternate the water flow from one outlet to the next with each timer cycle. It is a simple, inexpensive solution to double the coverage of your drip irrigation system.

Specifications:

  • Allows flows up to 6 gallons per minute per outlet
  • Operates in a pressure range from 14 to 140 PSI
  • Low friction polymer construction
  • Flow switches from outlet 1 to outlet 2 with each timer cycle
  • Allow one minute of "recovery" time between timer cycles
