Flush valves open when water pressure in the line drops below 2.5 PSI, effectively draining the line when the system shuts off. Draining the line helps prevent prolonged dripping from watering devices, mineral build up, and freeze damage during the winter months.
Flush valves are available with either a female hose thread (FHT) or 3/4" female pipe thread (FPT) inlet.

It brought a smile to our faces when the "moment of truth" happened and we turned everything on for the first time. Wow! It all worked, and there were zero leaks. We did need to swap out some of the drippers for those with higher flows, but otherwise, it works like a charm.
Should have done this 5 years ago!
