The micro-line drip line from DIG is extruded micro tubing with flow labyrinth in-line drip emitters inserted into the inside wall of the micro tubing at preset spacing of 6, 9 or 12 inch. The inline drip emitter is built with a large filter along the cross section of the drip emitter to ensure that moving particles on the bottom of the micro tubing do not enter the labyrinth water path, ensuring trouble free operation and long life. Use with 1/4" barb fittings
For commercial, agricultural and residential applications use the micro drip line with our 1/4” barb fittings. The micro drip line can be installed above ground and can be covered with mulch to blend it with the landscape. Our 1/4” micro drip line can be used for installation in planters, boxes, vegetable garden, patios and green roofs, our micro line can also be used with gravity feed system for home gardens.
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.
Choosing the proper drip irrigation method based on soil type:
When using drip irrigation it is important to select the correct application rate and spacing in order to achieve the right soaked pattern shape. In sandy soil, water tends to drain quickly (gravitational force) with little lateral movement, so applying a higher flow rate over a given time period will produce a wider pattern. Using point source irrigation with .5 GPH drip emitters for one hour will provide a smaller soaked area then using 1 GPH for the same time, due to the soil characteristics.
