Dosatron Fertilizer Injector DM11F
Use this fertilizer injector to add nutrients to your vertical garden.
Install this unit inline with your drip irrigation system. It should be installed downstream of your pressure regulator. There’s no need for electricity. The unit uses water pressure to operate. The unit is placed above a container of liquid fertilizer. The Dosatron will slowly add concentrated fertilizer to your irrigation water.
The main advantage of the Dosatron is that is can operate using a very low water flow. Other venturi type systems require a very high flow which will not work for most drip irrigation systems.
You will know your system unit is working when you hear a slight clicking noise. Because of this clicking noise it is best to place the unit away from your quiet areas. Locate in a utility closet or build an airtight enclosure to contain the clicks.
The diagram below shows how a standard drip irrigation system works.
