Place Drip Equipment

Drip equipment includes the various components to supply water and provide flushing and air relief control.



These items are all placed in a similar fashion – with the use of the Place Equipment tool or from the Irrigation Manager.





Note: Before placing irrigation equipment into your drawing, you'll need select it from our database and add it to your project. For more information, see our Add Drip Irrigation Equipment to a Project documentation page.
The default install does not include all symbols, but many of them will download on demand. If you go to place a head, the symbol should download as necessary. You can also have the system download all irrigation symbols from the Check for Updates feature if you'd like.

Placing Drip Equipment Overview

Open our Place Drip Equipment tool:


F/X Irrigation ribbon. Place Drip Equipment flyout


F/X Irrigation ribbon, Place Drip Equipment flyout




Irrigastion toolbar


Irrigation toolbar




or type FX_PlaceDripEquip in the Command line

F/X Irrigsiton menu


F/X Irrigation menu, Place Drip Equipment option




You can also highlight the equipment in the Irrigation Manager and click Place.

Irrigation Manager, Place button




Select Drip Equipment dialog box

The Select Drip Equipment dialog box will open. This dialog box lists all drip equipment you've added to your project. Select a piece of equipment, then click Place.

If you used the Irrigation Manager to place the equipment, you'll skip this step.




Back in your drawing, click the locations where you want to place the drip equipment.

Drip emitters are designed to look for plants in your Xrefs – not in the current drawing. When the software runs through the project to determine the number of plants for which it needs to calculate flow, it will look through the current drawing first. If it finds any reference to plants, it will stop looking. If it does not find any plants, it will then move on to the Xrefs. Therefore, you should always create your drip plan in a separate .dwg from your planting plan and then Xref the planting plan into your drip design. If the drawing containing your drip plan also contains plants, you will need to find and remove those plants. Here's how.
