|'Microsprays' are miniature precision nozzles which direct a fine spray of
water in a very localised area. They are ideal for many different home garden
applications because they are reliable, low cost and versatile.
'Jet Sprays' are just another type of 'Microspray', made from two components, with a wider variety of spray patterns.
|All types of Microsprays can be attached directly to flexible Polytube and placed into garden beds for watering shrubs and bushes. Just punch a hole in the tubing with a Moss Hole Punch (G431-Q), and twist it into the tubing.|
|If you prefer to bury the tubing under the earth or mulch, then you can
raise up the sprayhead using Moss Rigid Risers.
They are made of a similar material to the tubing, but is much stiffer so that it stays in place. These Risers come in three different lengths:- 200mm, 300mm and 450mm. These are good where you know how large the plants will grow, such as these lettuces.
It is best to bury tubing near a fence or border like these bricks so that you know exactly where it is, and therefore you will be less likely to damage or disturb it during cultivation.
If you don't want to bury the tubing, keep it in place with the Moss Tubing Stakes (G456-Q)
|This Half Circle Jet Spray gives many very fine
jets of water droplets in one direction. Water is conserved because you place
it exactly where it is needed.
Most Microsprays will cover a Radius of up to 1.4 metres, which is ideal for many garden beds. However, because of the fine spray droplets they are not very good in windy conditions.
|The sprayhead shown here, colour coded blue, is a Strip Spray. It has two very small openings on each side,
and shoots two fine jets of water out about 2 metres each way. You can use this
in very narrow beds.
This photo also shows a Moss In-Line Tap on the 5mm Polytube, just before the Sprayhead. You will find this a very useful feature because it allows you to adjust the distance that the water sprays out. You can avoid putting water on to paths or fences where it is of no use.
This Strip Spray is attached to a Moss Extenda Stake, which is a much more rugged support. You can also use it to support plants while they are growing. Use the Moss Extenda Ties which locate into the small holes in the Stake.
|If you want even more rugged support, you can even fit Microsprays and Jet
Sprays onto Moss Spikespray Bodies and
Extension Tubes. As plants grow these can be raised
higher by adding more Extension Tubes. The Extension Tubes are held firmly in
place with the Moss metal Spike Bodies. You use the Moss
Microspray Adaptor (G365) to fit the sprayheads to the threaded
The sprayhead shown here is a Half Circle Brass Jet Spray. There is no real difference in the spray pattern, but you may prefer the solid metal feel of brass, and being harder, they are a lot easier to twist into these Adaptors.
|You can also use Microsprays upside down in Shadehouses, Greenhouses and
pergolas. They work very well this way and you can even get some mist spray if
you have high water pressure (over 200KPa operating).
However if you require full Misting for ferns and humidity-loving plants you should use Moss Misting Sprays.
