How to install SamsonRiser Stationary Risers
One or two layers of teflon tape (thread seal tape) are needed for proper threading into fitting.
To maximise protection of threads from vehicle impact damage or fittings from weeding shovels, recommended installation depth is 1 foot.
Wrench tight into the fitting to reduce the risk of theft.
4. Nozzle Install
Run water to clear any debris from riser. Then install shrub adapter (use teflon/thread seal tape), screen and nozzle.
