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
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.
