The Dropmaster connects to any point on the sprinkler system. Once connected and operating it maintains a constant 10”Hg vacuum, when the system is breached, as in the removal of a sprinkler head, a siphoning effect is created. This allows the fitter to replace the sprinkler head without using a bucket or creating a mess as a result of a spill. The Dropmaster’s flexible discharge hose allows for a quick and easy connection to any drain, thereby keeping the work area clean and odor free.
Yes, the system requires minimal daily maintenance that takes only a few minutes.
Every Dropmaster comes with a one year warranty. Made in the USA, the Dropmaster is durable, built to last, and proven in the field. The Dropmaster was designed and built for 24/7 operation if needed and all components are rated for continuous duty.
The Dropmaster eliminates residual water in a sprinkler system so that sprinkler heads can be replaced without using buckets and tarps. By reducing both set up and clean up time many contractors report labor savings of 40% to 60%, and some even claim 80%.
