Automatic Drains & Drainage

Automatic Drains are used to help protect your sprinkler system from freeze damage. Pop-up drainage emitters divert and release water away from structures, and poor drainage areas.

We recommend 1 Mainline Drain located on the water supply piping after the backflow device but before it splits up to head to the control or zone valves. Also, 1 lateral line drain, & 1- 2 end of line drains per zone or section of the sprinkler system. Do not exceed more than 3 to 4 drains per zone or sprinkler section.

Types of Automatic / Line Drains

Line Drains for your lawn sprinkler system come in several models depending on where or how you plan to locate them on your sprinkler system.

LATERAL LINE DRAINS & MAINLINE DRAIN
Just screw into a standard fitting on pipe at low points on line. Orient fitting and drain at 45° downward angle for optimal performance.

SWING PIPE ELBOW DRAINS
Screw into bottom of sprinkler heads at low points along pipe. Just use in place of a swing pipe elbow when connecting pipe and sprinkler via swing pipe.

END-OF-LINE DRAINS FOR POLYETHYLENE
Clamp to polyethylene pipe at end of line with wicking pad oriented downward.

END-OF-LINE DRAINS FOR PVC
Glue to PVC pipe at end of line with wicking pad downward.

SIPHON DRAIN™
Siphon Drain™ self-pierces and clamps onto poly pipe in just three seconds. Or, it installs just as fast on PVC after drilling a 3/8 in. hole. Grommets available for PVC installation.
