This 1/2" polyethylene tubing is the most common size of supply line used for most drip systems. It is often used as a mainline for small to medium sized gardens and can also be used as a header or branch line off of a larger mainline.
- Size: 0.600" ID x 0.700" OD
- Max. Pressure: 50 PSI
- Max. Flow: 240 GPH (4 GPM)
- Fittings: Use with 1/2" Easy Loc, Compression or Barbed fittings
- This tubing is not rated for use under constant pressure. It must be installed after automated timers and valves.
- All tubing is nominally sized. There is no industry standard. Refer to the ID and OD measurements for exact tubing size.

- I have been converting all the irrigation in the vineyard and raised beds to this tubing. Great durability and versatility.

- I finally installed a drip irrigation system in my raised bed vegetable garden, and used the 1/2" mainline tubing between the beds. Easy to cut to size but strong enough not to kink or bend,works perfectly.

ABSOLUTELY LOVE this entire system. Using it in 30" raised beds and my plants are amazing. Superior product, will continue to use indefinitely. Thank You

- We installed this after talking about doing it for the past 2 years. We love it. While all our other friends are working in their gardens and worrying about when it will rain so they don't have to stand there watering....we are just watching ours grow. Wish we did this year's ago. Very easy to install and we have about 50 plants in our garden.

- I've been buying 1/2" polyethylene mainline tubing from DripWorks. I find it can be used in many different ways. It has been the mainline header, but also served as a long, inexpensive watering hose, especially with faucet fittings on the ends. I punch holes in it to water (actually SOAK) long rows of sugar cane, instead of flood irrigation. When it's really "used up" (can't be repaired with "goof plugs"), then I still use it on the ground in front of gates to tell visitors how far back from the gate to stop so that the gate can still openin front of them. Long lasting. Many uses.

- Very good mainline tubing for my needs in a 1000+ ft garden.
