Advantages of Drip Tape

With drought affecting more and more areas of the country, a water efficient, economical method of watering row crops is essential. Drip Tape is an excellent product for use in agricultural irrigation, farm irrigation and backyard garden applications. The following pages on Drip Tape for Farm Irrigation and Drip Tape estimator to help determine your needs for larger scale uses of drip irrigation tape.

Drip Tape has a number of advantages:
  • Lowest cost drip system for rows and raised beds.
  • Suitable for all sizes of commercial agriculture or backyard gardening
  • Operates at very low pressures (down to 4 PSI) or up to 15 PSI (15 mil Drip Tape only). Will work at even lower pressure but it is up to the user if distribution is acceptable. We do not warranty systems running at less than 4 PSI.
  • Works great for low pressure gravity systems
  • Equal water distribution makes long rows possible
  • Ideal for above ground or buried applications
  • Lasts up to 7 years when covered or 2-5 years when left on the surface

How Drip Tape Works

Drip tape features a turbulent flow track emitter design that provides a high level of watering uniformity. Each outlet is part of a true drip emitter, providing reliable drip flow without squirting. A specially designed slit outlet reduces insect damage, impedes root intrusion and virtually eliminates start-up plugging from external contaminants.
The water in the supply tube passes into the regulating channel through multiple filtering inlets. The water next passes through the turbulent flow channel to regulate the discharge flow before exiting through the outlet. The advanced turbulent flow design uses large passageways which are less likely to plug and provide more uniform discharge for longer lengths of run than other drip tape technologies.
