TUBING HOLD DOWNS
A backflow preventor will prevent water from the irrigation system from back-flowing and contaminating drinking water. Definitely use as a precaution when fertilizer is injected into a system.
KATIF hand held PUNCH TOOL
To make a big job much easier this tool punches clean holes quickly and easily. Slip the 1/2" or 3/4" tubing completely into the channel and squeeze the handle until you hear the pop. The 602-PUM punches 1/4" holes, the 606-PUMK punches larger holes (i.e. for inserting Katif emitters). Extra tips are available for three different sized holes (blue: 1/4", Green: Katif size, Red: 1/8"--for micro tubing).

Pressure + Flow Gauge
This handy gauge will let you see both your water flow and your water pressure. Water pressure can be measured up to 160 PSI. Water flow can be measured up to 13 GPM (or 780 GPH). This gauge helps you determine the water capacity limitations that directly impact the design and performance of your drip irrigation system.
No landscaper should be without one!
Pressure & Flow Gauge
EMITTER INSERTER TOOL
1/4" MIRACLE PUNCH
Use to find what your pressure really is. These gauges have hose swivel adapters to hook up to a faucet, the end of a hose or in-line to measure within a drip system. 631 measures pressure up to 100 PSI. 642 measures up to 15 PSI--handy for measuring pressure on gravity systems.
Digital Hose Water Meter
Attach the hose threaded meter to your faucet and turn on the water. Instantly you will see the digital display measuring the water usage. Run the water for exactly 1 minute and the amount shown on the display will give you a gallons per minute (GPM) flow rate. The water meter will also connect to any garden hose or hose thread drip product.
..and test your irrigation system with this meter
The water meter can be used as a convenient tool to determine if you have a problem with your water lines. Test the flow of each of your installed systems and keep these measurements in your records for reference. When you start up your system for a new season, retest your flows and compare to your previously recorded measurements.
