Automatic watering systems require reduced water pressure in the range of 0–4 lbs. per square inch (PSI). The drinking founts will not work if connected directly to household pressure which is typically in the range of 25 or more PSI. This pressure regulator is the solution since it can be easily adjusted to deliver between 0 and 10 lbs. of pressure. An alternative is to use the Nivek Tank(s) which works by gravity.
Tip: On multi level setups, use 1 regulator for each 1 or 2 tiers. This will give you ultimate control over the pressure since pressure increases the further the founts are away (or below) the pressure regulator.
Tip: Pressure regulators that are available at local hardware stores will not work since they can only reduce pressure to about 25 lbs.
Tip: Connect a short length of garden hose to bottom of filter to carry flushed water away.
