Point Source Emitters Installation

Hunter POINT-SOURCE EMITTERS apply water slowly and directly at the base of the plant to ensure every drop is put to efficient use. They are available in three convenient styles, including self-piercing ¼" barb, 10-32 threaded fitting, and ½" female pipe thread (FPT). All styles are available in flows of 0.5, 1.0, 2.0, 4.0, and 6.0 GPH (see Model Chart). This wide range of flow rates offers you the flexibility to give individual plants and trees the right amount of water from single or multiple point-source drip emitters. They are also color-coded for fast flow identification and feature coined edges for easy gripping during installation. For full installation details, click here.
