Product Overview

DIG’s Earthline Brown PC, 250 ft. 1 GPH dripline is a pressure compensating dripline with drip emitters spaced every 18 In. delivering equal flow over the length of dripline. Use for all plantings, including groundcover, shrubs or individual plants, loop around trees, or for complete coverage of an area where multiple lines of dripline are placed 16” to 24” apart. Each PC drip emitter inside the dripline consists of a cylinder with a labyrinthine water passage, filter and diaphragm. Each PC drip emitter continuously adjusts to varying incoming water pressure, ensuring a constant flow rate along the dripline.
  • Each emitter continuously adjusts to varying incoming water pressures ranging from 10 to 45 PSI, ensuring a constant flow rate regardless of elevation along the dripline
  • Use with DIG black insert, 0.700 compression fittings, brown barbed fittings and nut lock fittings
  • Manufactured with dow’s 7510 linear low-density polyethylene resins with high environmental stress crack resistance and UV protection against the damaging effects of ultraviolet rays
  • Total of 65 1-GPH PC drip emitters per 100 ft.
  • Dripline dimension is 0.600 I.D. x 0.700 O.D.
  • Can be covered with mulch and used below or above the ground
  • DIG's drip irrigation products may be exempt from residential and commercial watering restrictions (check local codes)
  • Drip line produces a flow rate of 1 GPH per each drip emitter at 10 PSI to 45 PSI
  • Use for groundcover, roses, shrubs, plantings in narrow areas, vegetable gardens or loop around trees
  • Flow-regulated, self-flushing in-line emitters deliver equal flow over a wide pressure range and over the length of the drip line
  • Maximum run length of 369 ft. can be achieved from a single water source at 45 PSI

Asked by froggo February 26, 2021

Answer

You are free to use any conversion kit from any one of our competitors, you must however make sure the barbed t connector from rainbird is compatible with the size of our dripline .600” inside diameter by .700” outside diameter. If you have any other questions, please contact our technical service/product support team at 1-800-322-9146.

Asked by Pam February 5, 2021

Answer

We recommend a 25 PSI preset pressure regulator be used for low volume irrigation (drip irrigation). We make the D46 that is preset to 25 PSI and hose threaded so it will connect to any standard ¾” outdoor faucet.

This hose can surely be cut to fit the length and with the right connection or attachment can be connected to a garden hose, not to sure about the mesh as I haven't used it in my application but possible it can be used.

Answer

The maximum lateral run for our PC dripline does depend on your pressure. We have a handy chart on our website that breaks down the maximum run length at different pressures. I will provide the direct link to our PC dripline webpage. https://www.digcorp.com/homeowner-drip-irrigation-products/pressure-compensating-dripline-brown

Asked by Lynne May 15, 2020
1
Answer

The B18250 is not pressure regulating it is pressure compensating, this meaning if your pressure is over 45 psi you will need to install a pressure regulator at your faucet. If you have an further questions please contact our technical service/product support line at 1-800-344-1172.

Can you bury this tubing? How deep can it be? If no, will mulch work?

Asked by BB May 15, 2020
1
Answer

To prevent the emitters from clogging over time we recommend this tubing not be buried, but covering with mulch or wood chips will be just fine. If you have an further questions please contact our technical service/product support line at 1-800-344-1172.

Asked by BB May 15, 2020
1
Answer

Using this dripline would work great for all the plantings you mentioned, for trees we recommend using a coil or ring of dripline around the base of the tree. For shrubs, perennials, and flowers it may be needed to run multiple driplines to get full coverage in those areas. If you have an further questions please contact our technical service/product support line at 1-800-344-1172.

Hard to put out without kinking. Will it still work correctly or do I need to cut out kinked area...

Asked by Barb May 10, 2020
1
Answer

No need to cut out the kinked sections out of the emitter tubing. Setting the tubing out in direct sunlight for around an hour will soften up the tubing and allow for the kinks to be worked out. If you have any other questions please give our DIG Pro’s a call at 1-800-344-1172.

can this be used as a 1/2 inch mainline tubing from a sprinkler conversion?

Asked by Newbie April 25, 2020

Answer

No

Can I cover the emitters with goof plugs?

Asked by Lotti February 16, 2020
1
Answer

No, you can’t close off individual emitters on the dripline. The only way to stop the flow is to cut out the emitter(s) and join the two ends back together with a #C33 coupler.

I wanted to install a drip system in my garden and I was thinking that I wanted a 12 inch spacing on the emitters but I could only find 18 inch spacing. I decided to purchase it and see if it would work for me. I placed the drip tubing in my rows of raspberries, blackberries and grapes to start with. I ran the water pressure at 20 psi for 6 hour cycles on Mon., Wed. and Fri. of each week. It took only two cycles and ground was damp the complete width of each row. I have now been running this setup for several weeks and then decided to cut back the cycle time from 6 hours to 4 hours and it seems to be maintaining the right amount of moisture for my plants. I have only been having temps in the upper 70's at this point but as the temp goes up to the high 90's in my area I will have the ability to add more hours to the cycle time if needed. I am very pleased with this system and it has turned out to be much simpler than I expected. I have cut back on water use by a huge amount. Previously I was using soaker hoses to do my watering and they would split and then the running water would wash out a area and then I would have a mess to clean up. It was hard to control the amount of water applied as sometimes they wouldn't let much water flow, then I had to turn up the pressure and then it would flow too much and or split. I always had to adjust the water flow to meet my needs. So far I have saved several hours of work (each week) in my garden. I am expecting this work saving will continue as I am not expecting to have to tackle as many weeds as in the past because the water is more controllable and not running where I don't need or want it.

Durable drip line tubing for use in flower beds and gardens. Emitters are susceptible to clogging if water supply is not clean. (A filter may be required for well water) The 18 in spacing is a bit wide to get even watering. DIG also offers this tubing with 12 in spacing between emitters which is better. Calculate flow rate of the water source to determine what emitter spacing and length of tubing to use.

This is a good tubing for drip irrigation applications where the foliage density isn't too close together. As with other tubing of it's type, make sure that you adjust the water pressure so that it's not too high, otherwise, you'll blow out the drip holes and the barbed fittings won't stay without using band clamps. The main issue that I had with my project was the lack of availability of the fittings I needed. I ended up driving all over Dallas to find what I needed.

Added 500 feet to my existing drip system. The tubing is slightly thinner than our other tubing and the connectors (the barbed ones) keep popping off where we never had that problem with our other half inch drip tubing. The barbed connectors are so loose that you can pull them off by hand where that is impossible with the other brand of tubing. I had to put zip ties on the barbed fittings to keep them holding. I would use the over the tubing connectors which may hold better due to their design.
