    Default Answered: Clogged drippers

    Howdy talkers

    My drippers are clogging, its been about 30 days in coco perlite, canna coco ab and rhizo only.. pressure came down from 48 litres per hour to around half than that.

    How can i unclog that, or just replace the drippers cuz it looks like once i put them in i cant disattach em...

    Thank you good people

  2. "I use drippers all the time . Drop the rhizo . Its organic and clogs

    Take em out . Unscrew the tops . Let soak in water and hydrogen peroxide .
    A 1/4 cup per gallon . Or javex .
    Put entire pump and drippers in a 5 gallon bucket let soak . Then run pump so pressure can clear out lines and nozzles


    Or let em in where they are and use pipe cleaners to fish the junk out then let run a bit .

    Can't you get a dripper cleaner that you add to the feed?

    I can and will do.
    But for now I have to install new drippers or can i run a lot of water with hydrogen peroxide through the pump?

    Also if need to disattach the drippers, is that possible? Or need to replace the 20mm tube also?
