Description

IPS tubing is a very strong, flexible hose that glues into standard PVC fittings. Its great advantage is that it is very resistant to damage yet extremely flexible. That makes it ideal for a wide range of drip irrigation applications that require tubing that is strong, durable and adaptable.

IPS tubing is commonly used in vineyards to connect an underground water main to the beginning of each row of grapes. When regular PVC pipe is used, it can easily be damaged by farm equipment. In time, it will likely break below ground at the sub-main, the hardest part of the system to repair.

IPS tubing is also commonly used to connect the outlet of automated valves to tubing or PVC. It is much easier to use flexible IPS tubing than rigid PVC pipe in these tight areas.

If you are wondering where to buy flexible plastic tubing like this, look no further. At DripWorks, we carry this handy flex pipe PVC tubing in a variety of diameters. Choose from 1/2" IPS tubing or 3/4" tubing to suit your watering system. Call us toll-free with any questions or fill in and submit our online question form.
