The 1/4" with .250 OD micro tubing from DIG is available in 100’, 500’ and 1,000’ coils. The Drip Store, micro tubing from DIG Corp., is made of Dow FINGERPRINT™ DFDA-7510 NT linear low-density polyethylene resin. The poly micro tubing exhibits a combination of outstanding environmental stress-cracking resistance and burst strength. The Dow FINGERPRINT™ DFDA-7510 drip tubing includes an anti-oxidant to protect the end product from thermal degradation with 5% concentrated carbon black. The materials selected contain the Dow FINGERPRINT™ (trace element) that certifies the product and provides verification as to the identity of the micro tubing in the event of failure. . The 1/4" micro tubing can be used as a feeder line from the 1/2" poly tubing extending drip emitters or micro sprinklers, with our 4, 6 and 12 outlet drip emitters, and for a complete 1/4" drip system.

Used this in Cental Texas 100 degree heat and after about two weeks cracks started to appear everywhere in the 1/4" poly micro tubing # T042....
switched to # T039 vinyl tubing... too early to say for sure but so far so good...........James B.

Installation for 1/4" Micro tubing

The basic use of 1/4" micro tubing is as a feeder line from the 1/2" drip tubing, with the 12-outlet drip manifold and as part of a complete system using the 1/4" as the main lateral. To connect the micro tubing to the drip tubing, first insert a 1/4" barb or 1/4" tee into the micro tubing, then use the punch to make a hole in the drip tubing. Then insert the barb into the hole in the drip tubing. Use the micro tubing as a feeder line to reach plant or clusters of plants away from the drip tubing and install a dripper or micro sprayer at the end of the micro tubing.
