In this installation a 1000 series system is installed on a hose or drip system in front of a multi zone timer and is under pressure at all times (constant pressure – 1000 series only). The system will feed through any sprinklers, sprayers or drip emitters that are connected to the timer, each time a zone is watered. One system can conveniently feed all of the areas automatically. The systems come complete with all the components needed to connect to a garden hose connection.
In this installation a 1000 or 2000 series system is installed on a hose or drip system and is only under pressure when the water is turned on (on/off pressure). The system will feed through any sprinklers, sprayers or drip systems that are connected to the garden hose or drip system. The systems come complete with all the components needed to connect to a garden hose connection.
In this installation a 1000 or 2000 series system is installed on one zone of an underground irrigation system and is only under pressure when the irrigation zone is turned on (on/off pressure). The system will feed through any sprinklers or drip emitters that are connected to the irrigation zone. The systems come complete with all of the components needed for installation into an irrigation zone except for the connector that glues into the irrigation pipe which is sold separately. An EZ-FLO Ball Valve Coupling the same the size as the irrigation line is recommended for this installation.
Fertilizer Distribution Rates
EZ-FLO’s patented flow technologies ensure that the approximate proportion of fertilizer to water remains constant from the beginning of the cycle until the tank is depleted of fertilizer. There is generally slight dilution when the tank is almost empty and at the end of its fertilization cycle. For a detailed look at how EZ-FLO’s technology works see our Technical Specifications. All EZ-FLO fertigation units have an adjustable cap with four basic settings relating to the amount of fertilizer mixed with the water. The proportioning rate is determined by the connection type with the hose bib connection feeding at a faster rate than when a coupling connection is used. Feed rates are approximate and will vary by product due to product density and solubility.

Drip Cap Setting
|Slow||1,000 to 1||15,000 to 1|
|1||500 to 1||8,000 to 1|
|2||250 to 1||2,000 to 1|
|Fast||100 to 1||400 to 1|
The following table shows approximate fertilizer proportioning rates (ounces, teaspoons and milliliters) the at the various cap settings along with the approximate gallons (kiloliters) to empty:
