Product Details

Extremely versatile, DIG's 100 ft. 1/4 in. Micro Drip Emitter tubing with 6 in. spacing is a low cost, small diameter drip line that can be used in any part of the garden for a water-efficient drip irrigation system. The micro drip line's cylindrical labyrinth drip emitters are built into the interior wall of the 1/4 in. micro tubing every 6 in. for total saturation along the drip line path. The micro drip line can be covered with mulch or bark to conserve water or for aesthetic reasons. The drip line is designed to be extended from the 1/2 in. drip tubing using a 1/4 in. barb, or connected to DIG's 4 or 6 outlet drip manifolds. Used in planter boxes, vegetable gardens, window boxes, raised beds or coiled around individual plants or trees, for gravity feed systems, green walls and for narrow planting areas.
  • Allows water to drip directly to the root zone, delivering a beneficial deep watering

      A:  It's per foot (2 emitters) but you need to consider your water pressure and the length of hose (emitters) you are using.

        Q:How should the tube be connected to the spigot? What are the necessary parts or products? Can it be cut to a custom shorter length?
        by|Jul 21, 2022

        Answer This Question

        A:  There is an adapter to connect to the spigot it screws on the spigot and the tube inserts and it can be cut to length with a plug to insert at cut end

        by|Jul 25, 2022

          A:  Use a kit that has a pressure reducer to40 psi, a back-flow preventer, filter and connector to the size tubing you use. This connects to the faucet. Go online and read up on drip systems and what components you’ll need. I used a 1/2” mainline and connected lengths of 1/4” drip tubing to it that fed each shrub.

          by|Jul 27, 2022

            A:  Yes you can cut it to whatever length you desire. You will need an ender for you drip. I just use the one that looks like a figure eight to crimp the end. I highly recommend googling how to set up drip irrigation. There are a lot of parts and great videos out there on how to do it. But you need at least a hose adapter, some kind of filter, a backflow preventer, and a pressure regulator. You need to figure out how to get the water to the drip. So you may need solid 3/4 hose and then a coupler to attach it to the drip. I just use a garden hose with a quick connect. If you want to hook it up to the spigot itself you may need a diverter and a timer. 

            by|Oct 26, 2022

              A:  The dripline can be cut to length need but has a max linear run length of 16 feet. To connect dripline to an outdoor faucet (hose bib) you would need our micro tubing compression adapter model C37B. If you have any further questions, please contact our technical service/product support team at 1-800-322-9146.

              by|Jul 22, 2022

                A:  Yes it can be cut to shorter lengths, but you will have to cap the end of each length--I use a length with about 4-5 emitters in a large pot, use a goof plug to cap the end, and coil it into the pot to water evenly. This tubing is usually attached to a length of 1/2 inch tubing which is attached to the spigot, but you can get an attachment to connect directly to the spigot if you want to--however make sure you don't turn on the water full blast, you will have to adjust the flow from the spigot to have the emitters work properly. You should google the process, there is lots of information available and lots of parts involved, and it really depends on how large an area you are trying to cover.

                      Q:Are there other connectors such as 90 degree bends and such so this could be made specific for a garden bed?

                      Answer This Question

                      A:  The tubing is quite flexible. Use as few barb connectors as possible. They tend to disconnect from tubing when weather changes. By the time you realize it, the plants will be dead.

                      by|Apr 9, 2022

                        A:  Yes, There is all types of connectors you can use. They have 90 degree and Tees ect.

                        by|Apr 11, 2022

                          A:  Yes, I'm not sure they are all the same brand but they will fit 1/4" tube.

                          by|Apr 16, 2022

                            A:  We do make ¼” elbow barb connectors model H84B that will allow you to make 90-degree turns with ¼” dripline. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our technical service/product support team at 1-800-322-9146.

                                Over the years we have tried multiple iterations for watering our garden. Sprinklers, 1/4 inch soaker hose, laser cut soaker hose, etc. Nothing worked to our satisfaction. This year we purchased Dig's 1/4 emitter tubing, with 6 inch dripper spacing. What a fantastic product! It gives us just the right amount of water directly to the plants at an equal volume of water flow throughout the garden. This has tremendously cut down the weed population, while our plants are thriving. We would highly recommend this product!

                                At least 3 emitter holes are defective. Water comes just gushing out of them. Have to cut the lines short and start new ones.

                                so far, so good. I replaced an older run of emitter tubing that had clogged. Supposedly these are more clog resistant so we'll see.
