Hi!

I was in a hurry and not being diligant. I was supposed to order this kit from www.duralirrigation.com.au,

but instead I ordered this kit.

Does anyone know how I can salvage the situation?

Do I just need to purchase a pressure regulator or do I need to completely uninstall the backflow regulator kit and purchase & install the Drip Accessories kit?

I emailed them, but no response. I'll try and call dural irrigation today.

If I understand correctly, you just need a backflow prevention device for your irrigation system? I think that is a requirement in NSW (not Qld as far as I know). By the look of things you've ordered a brass, probably higher cost one, rather than a plastic one? I imagine the brass one will be fine.

I ended up ringing dural irrigation and spoke to Mark who was very helpful!

He even looked at photos I sent him of my set up and wrote a list for me of things I had to buy to fix the issues!

So I started laying the new irrigation today :yess

So excited not to have to hose the garden anymore and looking forward to seeing my hedges (finally!) take off with some consistent watering!

:woot:
