A minimum of 15 PSI is required for these emitters to work properly. Use at the end of 1/4" tubing or installed directly into the mainline. Will emit 1 GPH at 20 PSI.
How the Non-Plugging Emitter Works:
- Inside the emitter are 2 diaphragms with 6 small openings.
- When particles block the diaphragm openings, pressure develops and stretches the opening.
- The particle is forced through the opening, which then returns to its normal size.
I've had it with flag emitters and pressure compensating emmiters, I used to spend a portion of every Monday just checking to see if there clogged.
