Flushing valve?

Just picked up my new topspinner system.

They have included a flushing valve! Where does it go on the system! Obviously no instructions.... 

My last topspinner didn’t come with this, is it required?

Thanks 

 

double post sorry

Set up system without using valve last night, all good till I turned them off and they just keep dripping. How do I stop this?

After some google bashing I think the flushing valve (that’s what written on it) is actually a anti siphon valve!

Do they work? Anybody use them? Does it matter where in line it goes, after the filter and before the drippers?

i dont really know, because ive never used this system, but i would imagine at the highest point of the line from pump to drippers.

Have a look on youtube, its usually a good reference for these things. theres usually someone who has posted up a vid of thier set ups.
