Rain Bird’s new Flow-Indicating Basket Filter product line makes irrigation systems easier to install and maintain by providing flow measurement, filtration and integrated pressure regulation in an all-in-one, compact solution.

“It’s important to monitor your irrigation system’s performance to ensure all areas are getting just the right amount of water,” said Whitney Braun, product manager for Rain Bird’s Landscape Drip Division. “However, it can be challenging to discover and diagnose issues quickly, before they become real problems. Our new Flow-Indicating Basket Filter product line provides easy, visual monitoring of irrigation system changes over time.”

Ideal for drip systems, the new basket filters are designed to work with any residential or commercial irrigation system with a flow range of 3.0 gpm  to 20 gpm (11,4 to 75,7 L/m). A dial at the top of the filter cap provides diagnostic information about the zone’s operation. This saves time on scheduling calculations and diagnosing future maintenance issues. The upright design of the unit helps prevent debris from entering downstream the line during routine maintenance and makes cleaning easier.

Rain Bird’s Flow-Indicating Basket Filters are available in five models. According to the company there there are three one-inch models – two with integrated 40 psi pressure regulation and one without. A fourth model is a full commercial control zone kit, including a one-inch Rain Bird PESB Valve, while a fifth model is a Retrofit Kit that makes it possible to upgrade existing Rain Bird Basket Filters by simply changing the filter and the cap. All five models provide flow measurement and filtration, with replacement stainless steel filters also available.

“By installing these new Flow-Indicating Basket Filters, irrigation professionals can determine when a system may need maintenance with just a quick glance at the filter’s dial,” said Braun. “As a result, they get additional control for better, faster troubleshooting, fewer callbacks and invaluable peace of mind.”
