Help with converting sprinklers to drip/bubbler sprayer system

sprtsguy76(Santa Clara Ca. 9b)March 16, 2012

Hi all. I have a single valve sprinkler system in my backyard. It has 8 sprinkler heads. I have capped off 4 of them and the other four I'm converting to 1/2 inch risers for drip/bubblers. Off these 4 risers I plan to run 1/2 inch poly tube with 10-15 adjustable bubblers/sprayers per line. These bubblers/sprayers supposedly have an adjustable flow rate of 0-18 GPH. So the question is: em I dreaming here or can this work?? I have not measured my water pressure in the backyard but I'm pretty sure its darn good. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

You will need to check your pressure, if it's too high, it will blow your bubblers out of the poly. But yes, it can be done, using a Female Pipe Thread swivel fitting, in the size of your poly tubing. Most common being .700. Drip irrigation should be around 25 psi. You might get by with a little more tho.
