ASAE - AE50 Award-Winning Add-It® Fertilizer Injector Manufactured by: Strong Injectors® Featured in Sunset magazine, seen on HGTV’s Gardening by the Yard, and member tested and recommended by the National Home Gardening Club! Offered by: Drip Rite Irrigation Products® Model AFI 5016-H Specifications: pint capacity with ¾" FHT inlet x ¾" MHT outlet Attaches to a Hose Bib or Garden Valve Great for a drip irrigation system, porous pipe, and garden hose-end spray/sprinkler! Fertigation….the easy, efficient and economical way to fertilize as you irrigate! Turn your neighbors GREEN with envy! Now that you’ve installed a drip irrigation system in order to conserve water and have healthier, stronger plants, you’ve already learned that you can no longer broadcast dry granular fertilizer onto the soil surface and expect it to be leached into the soil by overhead watering. You’ve determined, like millions of other gardeners have, that the fertilizer must be dispensed directly through the irrigation system. You’ve asked yourself, how can I do that easily and inexpensively? We’ve got the solution! Drip Rite Irrigation Products® offers this ASAE - AE50 award-winning Add-It proportioning fertilizer injector and foliar feeder, ideal for a small drip irrigation system or hose-end sprinkler at the end of a garden hose, which attaches to a hose bib or garden valve. This fertilizer injector has a one pint capacity. A minimum flow rate through the irrigation system of ½ gallon per minute (GPM) is required for the injector to function. The maximum operating pressure is 60 PSI. Now you can dispense your favorite totally water-soluble fertilizer such as Scotts Miracle-Gro® or Peters Professional®, when premixed with water. Now, every time you water you can fertilize as well. Currently, there are well over 185,000 Add-It proportioning fertilizer injectors already being used by people just like you, people who understand the benefits of fertigation! Over many years, tests have concluded that applying liquid fertilizer on a regular basis is much more beneficial to a plant than being fed infrequently with a dry, granular form of fertilizer. Liquid fertilizer is absorbed far more easily by a plant’s root system, and there are no leftover residues or minerals that can, over a period of prolonged use, damage a plant or lawn. You may also want to consider applying a wetting agent (surfactant) to help breakup compacted soils, compost tea to increase micro-organisms in the soil, micro-nutrients and Vitamin Institute’s SUPERthrive containing vitamins and hormones for healthier plants, and vitamin B-1 when transplanting trees and/or shrubs. Fertilizing is not the labor intensive task that it used to be. Tests show that liquid fertilizer is absorbed far more easily by a plants root system The Add-It fertilizer injector installs directly onto a hose bib and operates without electricity, using water flow through the injector as the power source. There is no measurable pressure loss. The amount of fertilizer or additive concentrate dispensed from the tank will be directly proportional to the volume of water passing through the injector, regardless of variations in flow or pressure, which may occur in the main line. The injection rate is preset at a ratio of 100:1 (100 parts water to 1 part additive). There is no need to concern yourself with setting the injection rate. All the guess work is gone and your plants will receive nutrients for optimum plant growth. NOTICE! When purchasing more than one item, we will combine shipping charges whenever possible. After placing your order, but before paying for your order, please request an invoice. Please take a look at all the products we offer in our eBay Store! AFI 5016-H Add-It® Fertilizer Injector Installation, Operation and Maintenance Attach a vacuum breaker to the hose bib or garden valve before attaching the Add-It Fertilizer Injector and Foliar Feeder. Fertilizer must be in liquid form when it’s poured into the proportioning Add-It Fertilizer Injector and Foliar Feeder. If using a premixed liquid, usually you can pour it in full strength. If using a dry, totally water-soluble granular fertilizer such as Scotts Miracle-Gro® or Peters Professional®, Bandini Pro Choice®, or Grow More®, premix with water at a ratio of 1 to 1¼ pound of dry formula (i.e. one small bag of Miracle-Gro® general purpose plant food, 15-15-15 or 20-20-20) to 1 gallon of water. Fish emulsion or any petroleum-based additive can only be used in the Add-It injector when they have been premixed with water at a 1 to 1 ratio. Read and follow the manufacturer’s directions printed on the fertilizer container. When using the Add-It as an injector in a drip irrigation system, you may also want to consider dispensing a wetting agent (surfactant) like Grow More E-Z Wet Soil Penetrant 26® to help breakup compacted soils, compost tea to increase micro-organisms in the soil, micro-nutrients or Vitamin Institute’s SUPERthrive™ containing vitamins and hormones for healthier plants, or vitamin B-1 when transplanting trees and shrubs. Usually, 1 gallon (or 8 pints) of liquid fertilizer will cover approximately 1,000 square feet, according to most manufacturers’ specifications. When using the Add-It as a foliar feeder for lawns, only pour a liquid solution of fertilizer or wetting agent into the additive tank! And, when using the Add-It as a foliar feeder for trees and shrubs, only pour in a solution of fertilizer, no other additive! To initially fill the Add-It Fertilizer Injector and Foliar Feeder, remove the top fill cap. Insert the fill funnel into the opening and pour in liquid solution. Fill the tank completely. Replace the top cap, and the Add-It fertilizer injector is ready for operation. Turn on the irrigation system at the hose bib. Consult the chart below to determine how many gallons of water will pass through the irrigation system to empty the Add-It Proportioning Fertilizer Injector and Foliage Feeder. For example, let’s say that you’ve installed the Add-It injector into a drip irrigation system, and the flow rate of 2 gallons per minute (GPM). After consulting the chart below, you know it will take 15 gallons of water passing through the injector to empty it. Divide 15 by the flow rate of 2 GPM. You now know it will take approximately 8 to 10 minutes to not only water your trees, shrubs and lawn, but also fertilize them as well. Extreme care must be taken before pressurizing the Add-It injector. Always be sure that the unit is completely full of either additive or water. Model Inlet/Outlet Capacity Minimum Flow Rate Gallons to Empty AFI 5016-H ¾” FHT x ¾" MHT Pint ½ GPM 15 When the time comes to refill the Add-It Fertilizer Injector and Foliar Feeder, simply turn off the water supply at the hose bib. Remove both the bottom drain cap and the top fill cap. Allow all of the water to drain from the unit and replace the bottom drain cap. Place the fill funnel in the top opening and recharge the Add-It injector. Replace the top fill cap and turn on the irrigation system. Once you have completed watering, it is not necessary to drain the unit. If there is fertilizer or additive still in the tank, it will be dispensed the next time you operate your irrigation system. Once all the additive has been dispensed, it will not harm the unit to have water running through it when you are not fertilizing. On the contrary, the clear water passing through the Add-It injector will help keep it clean inside. Fertilize as often as recommended by the fertilizer manufacturer during the growing season, at least once a month. For optimum plant growth and health, we recommend that you use the Add-It Proportioning Fertilizer Injector and Foliar Feeder on a monthly or bimonthly basis during the growing season. The Add-It Fertilizer Injector and Foliar Feeder can be left outside, attached to the hose bib (or garden valve). It can also be moved from valve to valve to fertilize other areas. If you choose to leave the unit outside during the winter months, and there is a possibility of freezing, it is highly recommended that the unit be left drained and vented to atmosphere to prevent damage. Warranty The Add-It Fertilizer Injector and Foliar Feeder is guaranteed for a period of one year from the date of purchase against defective materials and workmanship when installed and operated per instructions and used in a normal manner. Buyer assumes all responsibility for safety and use not in accordance with instructions and directions. Feedback PolicyWe give feedback on all completed transactions.
