This drip irrigation kit includes 100’ of brown drip line with 1 GPH (gallons per hour) pressure compensating inline drip emitters inserted into the inner side of the drip tubing every 18”. This kit is ideal for preset spacing or closely spaced rows of plants such as ground cover, shrubs and roses, or for around the house foundation. This drip line irrigation kit includes all the components needed to water small, medium and large size plants, and it can be expanded to a system of up to 440 square feet, using 1 GPH inline PC drip emitters.

This PC Drip line from DIG is an advanced pressure-compensating drip line incorporating PC inline emitters with low-density brown polyethylene tubing. The PC drip emitters have a cylindrical design with turbulent flow. Additionally, they are flow-regulated using a silicon diaphragm and are self-flushing. The PC drip emitters are inserted and welded into the inside wall of the polyethylene tubing in a preset spacing of 18” using a flow rate of 1 gallon per hour (GPH). The efficient design of the PC Drip line makes it a reliable system in a wide range of irrigation applications.

Drip irrigation is the slow application of water directly to the plants' root zone in a predetermined pattern. Maintaining an optimum moisture level in the soil at all times 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.

This kit has all the parts needed to implement a drip irrigation system from a hose faucet (spigot) or from an inline valve.

Note: The pressure regulator (included) is used to lower the incoming pressure to the micro sprinklers and drip emitters to the suggested operating pressure of 25 PSI, which is in the range of recommended pressures for a drip or micro-sprinkler system.

Suggestion in connecting the 1/2" compression drip fittings. To install the 1/2" compression fittings, cut the drip tubing with a hand pruner, being careful to keep dirt from entering the line. Hold the compression fitting in one hand and the drip tubing in the other and force the drip tubing into the fitting by wiggling it from side to side. Make sure that the drip tubing is pushed into the compression fitting for about 1/2 to 5/8 of an inch for a very tight fit. No glue or clamps are required.

Hard to straighten out tubing. Instructions should tell how far you must insert tubing into fittings. I found it goes into fittings about 1/2 to 5/8 inch.

This kit was not exactly what I was looking for, though it is everything is says. It does not actually have any drippers, just holes punched every 18" in the brown tubing...so unless your plants are perfectly spaced, it is difficult to line it all up exactly. But it works well enough and my plants are all still alive, so I'm happy.

  • Flow rate: 1 GPH, brown
  • Maximum incoming operating pressure: 100 PSI
  • Operating pressure: 10 to 45 PSI

Installation for K008

This drip irrigation kit has all the parts needed to start the system connecting to a faucet.  The Drip Store also includes instructions on how to start the system from a PVC pipe or a pipe thread.

Starting the irrigation system from a faucet:

  • Optional: If you wish to automate the system, first connect a battery-operated controller to the faucet (suggested model C001 - not included in this kit).
  1. Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT backflow device (model A015) to the controller or to the faucet if not used with a controller.
  2. Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT filter (model F300) to the backflow device if used, or directly to the controller male outlet or faucet.
  3. Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT pressure regulator (model A013) to the filter.

Starting the irrigation system from a PVC pipe:

  1. Glue to a 3/4" PVC pipe a PVC male adapter (model P357) (not included).
  2. Use the 3/4" MHT x MPT nipple (model A010) to connect to the pipe thread making sure to use 3-5 rounds of Teflon tape.
  3. Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT battery-operated controller (model C001) (not included).to the nipple.
  4. Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT backflow device (model A015) to the controller (not included), or to the faucet.
  5. Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT filter (model F300) to the backflow device, if used, or directly to the controller male outlet or faucet.
  6. Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT 25 PSI pressure regulator (model A013) to the filter.

Steps to connect all others components:

  1. To the 3/4" FHT x MHT pressure regulator connect the 3/4" FHT swivel adapter (model LF503), to the adapter connect the poly tubing by wiggling and forcing the drip tubing into the compression side of the adapter and lay out the drip tubing to the garden area. The 1/2" drip tubing is used as the main line to deliver the water to the drip line.
  2. Use the 1/2" elbow (model LF007) as needed.
  3. Use 1/2" coupling .700 O.D. (model LF001) to connect additional 1/2" drip tubing, or for repair.
  4. Used the 1/2" tee (model LF005) to split the 1/2" drip tubing if needed and to connect the drip line into the drip tubing.
  5. Connect the drip line with a dripper every 18” (model DL080) into the drip tubing using the tee and lay out near the plants row.
  6. Turn the water on and flush the line, and then close the end of the 1/2"drip tubing using hose end (model A006).
  7. Use the 1/2" holder stake (model S006) to secure the 1/2" drip tubing and drip line to the ground.

How much time to water:  Turn the water onfor 45 minutes to 1 hour every two days, depending on your location and the soil type.  After a week or two check the soil, the health of the plants, and adjust the irrigation time as needed.  If you have an irrigation controller and you need to add more time, adjust the time on the controller or program the controller with additional start-time.

NOTE: Connecting and installing the 1/2" drip fittings. To install the 1/2" fittings, cut the drip tubing with a hand pruner, being careful to keep dirt from entering the line. Hold the fitting in one hand and the drip tubing in the other and force the drip tubing into the fitting by wiggling it from side to side. Make sure that the drip tubing is pushed about 1/2" to 5/8” inside and into the fitting. 

Suggestion on unrolling the drip tubing or drip line:

Before we start, we suggest laying the 1/2” drip tubing out in a direct sunlight to make it easier to work with. When ready, start to unroll the drip tubing and lay it out per your design drawing or requirement. Use the 1/2" stakes to secure the drip tubing and the drip line to the ground in key areas and add more stakes as you unroll the drip tubing or the drip line. Space the stakes every 10-20’ and at the end of each section.

Below ground installation:

If the drip tubing is installed below grade, dig trenches 6" to 8" deep to keep the drip tubing safe from cultivation practices. Leave the end of the drip tubing above surface for periodic flushing.

If the installation requires crossing under a concrete walk or driveway, first dig two holes on opposite sides of the walkway. Next, connect a 3/4" PVC pipe to a garden hose using a 3/4" PVC female adapter, then turn on the water and begin forcing the garden hose with the PVC pipe through the soil. When the end of the pipe reaches the other side, turn off the water and cut the pipe so the 3/4" PVC fittings can be removed. Now, use the PVC pipe as a sleeve and push the drip tubing through the pipe until it appears on the other side.
