• Now you’ll know when an emitter is clogged up.
• No more dealing with damaged tubing or tiptoeing around it.
• If a Cap gets clogged, just shut off the water at the LittleValve, unthread Cap, open LittleValve to flush sprinkler,
   thread Cap back on. EASY!
• Can be mixed into any system with other types of sprinklers – even rotors.
• Never even think about pressure regulation – never needed.
• Don’t water weeds, put the water right where you want it.
• Can be installed onto above-grade risers or into pop-up sprinklers (with male pop-up riser stems only).

Application for stationary above-ground sprinklers

3 Components

No.1:  The tall part is our 1/2" Riser extender. [RX550]  The bottom section has 1/2" female threads that connect to a riser pipe.  The red part is the filter screen.  The part on the right is the Micro Stream Cap.  This particular cap has 2  'B' sized stream holes that shoot out 45° aparts.

Filter Screen Inserted into Riser ExtenderNo. 2: The filter screen is inserted - upside down - into the top of the Riser extender. Normally, the RX550 and the screen are sold together as shown. Fully AssembledNo. 3:  Other than the 1/2" riser pipe that extends upwards from below the soil level, this is the fully-assembled Micro Stream Cap.  This one has 3 'C' sized stream holes (the largest hole) that shoot the streams out in a 90° pattern.

Application for pop-up sprinklers 

4 Components

No.1:  The small item on the left is the PA80 adapter (from Rain Bird.) The small item on the right is the MSC.  Notice the blue filter screen is inserted into the pop-up riser stem before the other 2 items.

Adapter Connected to Pop-up Stem


No. 2:  The PA80 adapter is threaded onto the top of the pop-up riser stem over the screen.

Fully Assembled MSC Connected to Adapter
No. 3:  Lastly, the MSC is threaded onto the PA80 adapter.  You're good to go. Just turn on the water and adjust the distance of the streams coming out of the MSC by turning the little Allen screw on the side of the stem with the Allen key that comes with your LittleValve parts.
