The Drip Store's Excel Pressure Compensating Drip Line is extruded drip tubing with self-contained, flow regulated inline emitters molded into the inside wall of the drip tubing in preset spacing.
The inline PC drip emitters contain a diaphragm that continuously adjusts to varying water pressure ensuring a constant flow rate under a wide pressure range, providing high uniformity and allowing longer runs on any topography. The diaphragm inside the inline drip emitter allows particles to pass through the dripper without harming it, providing reliable performance and a longer life. Continuous flushing and a wide flow path allow the drip emitter to operate at optimal flow rates under extreme conditions.
For commercial, agricultural, and residential applications this heavy wall thickness drip line is used with our 17 mm barbed fittings. This drip line is recommended to be installed above the ground and if used above the ground can be covered with mulch to blend it with the landscape. Our PC drip line can be installed in planters, islands, and vegetable and home gardens, and may be used for trees, row crops, and in landscaped areas.
Uniformity and lower maintenance: With high uniformity over a wide range of pressures, the pressure compensating drip line offers many advantages in site preservation and maintenance, such as even uniformity over a long lateral run with smaller sized valves due to a smaller sized delivery system, no watering of streets and sidewalk, no above ground sprinklers to break or replace, and no water runoff.
Flexibility: The PC drip line is designed for placement in both new and existing landscape areas including green-roof areas, and used for above the surface installation. The PC drip line is ideal for installation on difficult terrain such as on slopes, in oddly shaped areas, and in windy sites.
Durability: Our Excel Drip Line is designed to withstand the harshest field conditions, and is manufactured of high quality, highly durable plastics containing added quantities of carbon black compound, making it resistant to the damaging effects of ultraviolet rays.
Root Zone: One of the most important aspects of drip irrigation is the fact that, in many instances, a totally new and more favorable root zone is created and a relatively constant soil moisture level can be maintained.
