RZWS - New Tree or Shrub Installation

For new tree or shrub installation, follow the steps below.

Step 1

IMPORTANT: If the model includes a Hunter Swing Joint, simplify installation by threading the tee or elbow fitting onto the swing joint prior to attaching to the lateral line

Step 2

After placing the tree or shrub in a prepared planting hole, space the RZWS units evenly around the root ball and flush with finished grade. Each tree or shrub should have a minimum of two RZWS units.

Step 3

For RZWS models sold without internal hardware, add irrigation hardware as needed.

Step 4

Attach each unit to the lateral line system.

Step 5

Backfill the hole around RZWS units. In sandy soils, use a fabric filter sleeve to prevent soil infiltration. Hunter part number: RZWS SLEEVE.

Step 6

Follow planting guidelines for specific tree species, and for local conditions.
