1. TOP 12 Outlet DRIP manifold
DIG TOP 12 outlet drip irrigation manifolds are designed to be adapted to any 1⁄2” riser, above
or below ground. They may be incorporated into a new system, or used to convert existing
sprinkler risers into 12-Outlet drip ­systems. Avail­able with our extremely accurate pressure
compensating emitters in four flow rates: .6, 1, 2.2 or 3.3 GPH per outlet.
TOP-005, TOP-010, TOP-020 and TOP-030 each contain a complete 12 outlet drip manifold
with 8 caps.
The TOP-100 1 GPH per outlet kit and TOP-300 3 GPH per outlet kit contain 1 complete
12 outlet drip manifold, 100’ 1⁄8” .118 ID x .187 OD distribution tubing, 12 bug plugs for
1
⁄8” distribution tubing, 12 stakes, and 12 color coordinated converter barbs to adapt to
1
⁄4” distribution tubing if desired.
TOP manifolds may be used with either DIG 1⁄8” .118 ID or DIG 1⁄4” .156 ID
distribution tubing.
2. HOW TO INSTALL
1. If converting an existing ­sprinkler system to
a TOP manifold, first remove the sprinkler.
Then turn on the water to flush the line.
2. A fter the line has been flushed, thread the
TOP onto the riser.

3. Excavate a narrow path to a depth of 4”
from each individual plant to the TOP and
lay out micro tubing within the trenches or
leave micro tubing above ground and cover
with mulch.

4. R
emove the cover and the Mini-Disk filter. Attach 1⁄8” micro tubing to
the outlet side (see Figure 4). If using 1⁄4” micro tubing, first connect
a 1⁄4” converter barb onto the 1⁄4” micro tubing (see Figure 5) and
then insert the converter barb into the outlet side of the TOP.

5. Use the rubber caps provided to close all unused
outlets. Do this by removing the cover and the
Mini-Disk filter. Press the rubber caps into the
unused outlets. Re-install the Mini-Disk filter
and cover. Tighten cover by hand.

6. Secure micro tubing near plants. If using more
than one outlet per plant, space each outlet
a minimum of 6-8” apart. Attach the plastic
stake to end of the micro tubing and add a bug plug at the end of micro tubing. A bug
plug prevents insects from crawling into the tubing, which they sometimes do to lay their
eggs. The bug plug will still allow water to trickle out for the plants.
NOTE: Bug plugs may be used only with 1⁄8” micro tubing. (see Figure 7)

8. Pressurize the system and verify that the TOP manifold is properly functioning and if
needed, make any necessary corrections.
When designing a system, we recommend that the maximum length of micro tubing from
each outlet should not exceed 8-10’. Longer lengths may certainly be achieved, but please
consider the factor of maintenance and aesthetics.
3. 12-outlet accessories
The standard micro tubing to be used with the TOP is 1⁄8” flexible vinyl with a wall thickness
of .118 ID x .187 OD. With the addition of a 1⁄4” converter barb or elbow, vinyl 1⁄4” micro tubing can be used.
Model # 12-006 1⁄8” 100’ micro tubing .118 ID x .187 OD black vinyl
12-042 1⁄8” 500’ micro tubing .118 ID x .187 OD black vinyl
12-013 1⁄4” 100’ micro tubing .156 ID x .245 OD black vinyl
12-005 1⁄4” 500’ micro tubing .156 ID x .245 OD black vinyl
Additional tubing lengths available.
bug Plug
Tubing bug cap should be inserted at the end of each 1⁄8” vinyl distribution
tubing outlet, if used with any “V” stake, permitting free flow of water with minimum restriction from the outlet and securing against bugs and dirt from restricting
the flow and contaminating the outlet port.
Model # 10-016 12 bug plugs for 1⁄8” micro tubing
⁄4” barb or elbow converter
⁄4” converter barb or elbow is only necessary if 1⁄4” micro tubing is used. The converter has
a compression side to be inserted into the drip manifold body. The other side is a 1⁄4” barb to
1
⁄4” micro tubing. Converter barbs are color coded to signify which emitter is installed.
Model # 10-012 Red converter barb to be used with 1⁄4” micro tubing
10-013 Green converter barb to be used with 1⁄4” micro tubing
10-014 Purple converter barb to be used with 1⁄4” micro tubing
10-017 Black converter barb to be used with 1⁄4” micro tubing
25-007 Black converter elbow to be used with 1⁄4” micro tubing

4. connecting micro sprinklers
The TOP manifold can be used with micro sprinklers by following these steps:
1. Remove cover and the disc filter
2. Remove emitter from the outlet to be used with the micro sprinkler by using a small
screwdriver
3. Convert the outlet using a 1⁄4” converter barb
4. Attach a 1⁄4” micro tubing to the converter barb
5. Connect 1-2 micro sprinklers per outlet
Make sure not to exceed 25 GPH and 50’ of 1⁄4” micro tubing.
