The 0-10 GPH adjustable drip emitter with 180-degree and 360-degree flow pattern produces a gentle stream pattern that can be adjusted from small to large coverage. Available with barb or spike, this drip emitter is used to water an individual plant or group of plants.
About drip irrigation sometime known as micro irrigation or trickle irrigation:
Drip irrigation or micro irrigation is the slow application of water directly to the plants' root zone in a predetermined pattern. Drip irrigation can be use to maintain optimum moisture level in the soil at all times that will results in less water lost to the sun and the wind. No water is wasted on non-growth areas, and the root zone is maintained at its ideal moisture level, combining the proper balance of water and air for a very efficient irrigation system. One of the most important features of a drip irrigation system is the creation of a totally new and more favorable root zone environment within the planting. Drip irrigation sustains this environment by using low flow rates to maintain constant soil moisture levels. This encourages better growth and disease resistance by reducing plant stress.
When using this type of drip emitter be aware that as you adjust the flow, the total flow rate of the system may be affected and this may lower the system uniformity. In other words, increasing the flow from each adjustable drip emitter on your system may limit the efficiency of the system. For example, on 1/4" micro tubing only three to four adjustable drip emitters should be used when they are opened to the maximum flow, and it is recommended to use no more than 20 to 25 adjustable drip emitters on 1/2" drip tubing.
