Holman Inline Flushing Valve for Drip Irrigation Systems
Maintain the performance of your drip irrigation system with the Holman Inline Flushing Valve. This essential component helps keep your system free from blockages caused by grit and debris, ensuring proper operation and water flow for healthy plants and water efficiency.
Features and Benefits
- Effective Blockage Prevention: The Holman Inline Flushing Valve purges water at the beginning of each drip system cycle, removing buildup and maintaining clear pathways for water flow.
- Easy Installation: The valve is designed to be installed at the lowest point of both the feed and collection manifolds, providing an optimal position for flushing debris out of your system.
- Optimal Performance: This flushing valve requires a minimum pressure of 7 meters (70kPa) to close off the water flow, ensuring that your system maintains the necessary pressure for optimal irrigation.
- Compatibility: The Holman Inline Flushing Valve is suitable for use with all standard drip irrigation systems, allowing for versatile installation and ensuring proper function with your existing setup.
- Alternative Option for Low Pressure Systems: For systems that may not meet the required minimum pressure, use a manually operated valve to flush debris and close off the system manually.
How to Use
- First, identify the lowest points on both the feed and collection manifolds of your drip irrigation system.
- Next, install the Holman Inline Flushing Valve at the identified lowest points, ensuring a secure connection.
- For optimal performance, ensure that your system has a minimum pressure of 7 meters (70kPa) to close off the water flow.
- If your system does not meet the required minimum pressure, consider using a manually operated valve for debris flushing and manual closure of the system.

FAQsHow does the Holman Inline Flushing Valve help in maintaining an in-line drip system?
The Holman Inline Flushing Valve, when installed at the lowest point of both the feed and collection manifolds, helps to purge out any grit and debris from the system every time the drip system starts up. This ensures that the small outlets remain free of blockages, promoting smooth water flow and efficient irrigation.What pressure requirements does the Holman Inline Flushing Valve have?
The valve requires a minimum pressure of 7 meters (70kPa) to close off the water flow. For low pressure systems, it is recommended to use a manually operated valve instead to ensure the proper flushing of debris and complete closure of the system.Can I use the Holman Inline Flushing Valve in a low-pressure drip system?
While the Holman Inline Flushing Valve works effectively in systems with a minimum pressure of 7 meters (70kPa), it is not the best option for low-pressure systems. In such cases, a manually operated valve is advised to effectively flush out debris and ensure the system is fully closed off manually.Where should the Holman Inline Flushing Valve be installed in the system?
The flushing valve must be installed at the lowest point of both the feed and collection manifolds. This strategic placement helps in purging out any build-up of grit and debris from the system every time it starts up.Can the Holman Inline Flushing Valve be used with an inline filter for better system maintenance?
Yes, it is recommended to use the Holman Inline Flushing Valve in combination with an inline filter. While the inline filter helps to prevent blockages by capturing debris before it enters the system, the flushing valve flushes out any accumulated debris from the system for maximum efficiency and proper functioning.
