To calculate the capacity of your system
Fit the pressure regulator (2760) to the tap. With the tap fully on, fill a bucket and count the
number of seconds it takes to fill. Multiply the number of litres your bucket holds by 3600, and
divide by the number of seconds it took to fill. This will give the maximum flow rate per hour.

Example: A 9 litre bucket filled in 15 seconds:
(litres) x 3600 =
Quantity
Req’d
32,400 ÷ 15
(seconds) =
2,160
Each outlet has a flow rate. For example: Microjets use 55 litres/hour, therefore with a
maximum flow rate of 2160 l/h, the maximum number useable is 39 (2160 ÷ 55).

Design and installation
Follow these simple steps to
plan a tailor-made system
and fill in the shopping list
on page 16. Even if you don’t
build exactly to plan, you will
have enough information
to buy the components you
need.
You need paper, a pencil, some coloured pens
and a long tape measure.
Use the paper to sketch the area where
you are going to build the system. Note
the dimensions as you measure. Transfer
the measurements to the squared paper
afterwards.
1 Measure (preferably in metres and
centimetres) and mark on your sketch:
•The fixed elements - house, outside tap
etc.
2 Carefully transfer your measurements to
the squared paper. Depending on the size
of the area, use one of the following scales:
•1cm square = 0.50 metres (1:50)
•1cm square = 1 metre (1:100)
3 Draw the supply tube, showing angles and
joints for connectors.
4 Plan in flow control valves where supply
tube is likely to be longer than 50m, or use
two Aqua Control timers and a four-way
tap connector (see page 6).
5 Using a different colour, show the lines of
micro-tubing.
6 Mark the outlets, using different coloured
pens for each type (see page 10 for table
of drippers).
7 Count up the outlets,
connections, fixings and
length of tubing and
complete your
shopping list.
•Distance from outside tap to start of
system
•Length of fences, walls, beds where supply
tube and micro tube will run.
•Key planting areas - container groups,
thirsty and precious plants, seedlings etc.
•Any obstacles, e.g. paths or driveways.
•Height of fence panels, walls etc if hanging
baskets are to be watered.
