A high quality heavy duty commercial drip irrigation pipe with sophisticated nozzle structure and thick 1.2mm pipe wall.
For herbaceous borders and flower beds the drip irrigation hose is laid on the border or flower bed in parallel lines 0.5m (just under 2 feet) apart – so a 1.5m deep bed would have 3 lines. At one end, the pipe are all connected to a water inlet point. At the other end, each run of drip line is capped off with a flushable end stop. The water supply can be either permanently connected to the bed or a hose can be connected temporarily to water.
When the drip watering pipe is operating, water will slowly drip from each outlet, making it one of the most water efficient irrigation methods available. On the surface the soil will be mainly dry, reducing evaporation and weed growth. Below the surface of the border or flower bed, the water will travel laterally, ensuring there is always water near to each individual plant. In addition, the plant’s root system will actively find the water in the drip irrigation pipe.
Designed for surface or subsurface use of landscaped beds, herbaceous borders and flower beds in commercial landscape settings and private gardens. Drip watering nozzles are pressure compensated to ensure uniform output and are self flushing to reduce blockages. In addition the dripper nozzles are anti – siphon for underground installations.
