Product Overview

Featuring copper shield technology that naturally protects the emitters from root intrusion without chemicals, this new subsurface tubing is designed for long-lasting, low-maintenance performance in the garden or landscaping. The tubing has 0.9 GPH emitters spaced every 18 in. and is intended for underground installation. Its direct, subsurface watering of the plant root zone produces faster, healthier growth, higher vegetable yields, and colorful, long lasting floral blooms. Because it leaves no excess water on the leaves as is common with overhead watering methods, there is less chance of leaf fungus and plant wilt. The tubing is tough and flexible, conforming to most landscaped area shapes without need for extra fittings. Combine up to five 50 ft. coils to extend your watering coverage up to 250 ft.

You can insert a regular emitter at each end of the tubing or you can insert small 1/4" tubing into the end of the tubing and lead it to where you want water to come out. At the end of the 1/4" tubing you can place an emitter.

Good addition to an existing yard sprinkler system
I needed to add more lines to my existing sprinkler system since I was enlarging my flower beds and they required drip-type stations per the city code. The yard area could have spray heads, but the beds must have drip lines. First thing I noticed about this tubing was that it came wound up in a tight coil. This required straightening it out the best I could, and then letting the sun warm it up to make it somewhat pliable. You can buy wire or plastic stakes to anchor it in place - highly recommended. It cuts to the proper length easily with a box cutter or sharp knife. Be sure you get the proper type connectors also (see my pictures.) If you get the wrong ones, you will get leaks (geysers!). I wish that the drip holes were closer together than the 18" apart; ten or twelve would be better, which is the typical amount recommended for spacing most annual flowers. Overall, this is a good product to use on larger plants like shrubs, but could be better for flowers if the drip holes were closer together.

No more evaporation
Let me start by saying, this is not a copper tubing drip emitter even though it looks like copper and the packaging uses the term "Copper Shield". It's just a copper colored plastic tube with another tube inside it. This product is meant for direct burial but I decided to bury it in the mulch in our flower garden. I think that should achieve the close to the same affect of preventing evaporation. Since this thing is going in the ground you need some sort of back-flow prevention. If you have an older house you will definitely want to, at the least, install an anti-siphon valve spigot to supply water to this. I won't go into the specifics of why back-flow prevention is so important. The product is a 50ft long piece of tubing but there are no fittings? How am I supposed to connect it to a water supply? It turns out, there are additional fittings you need to buy from Rainbird to connect it to your spigot and to plug the open end so the water doesn't just dump out. I guess it's good that you can buy the tubing without having to pay for the cost of the garden hose adapter and the plug for the end if you plan on connecting it to your irrigation system like I do. For the time being, I connected it use a male barb fitting and by clamping off the open end. Not the way it was intended to be done but it's only temporary and I wanted to see how well it worked. Plant roots always try to grow to where the water is and Rainbird claims this uses "Copper Shield Technology" to inhibit root growth into the emitter tubing without the use of chemicals. It takes a while for the roots to do this, so I will have to take the wait and see approach. They also advertise some sort of "pressure diaphragm compensating technology" that makes sure each drip emitter hole (spaced every 18") is releasing the same amount of water so everything is watered evenly. With long lengths of tubing the pressure drops as you get closer to the end of the run so those outlets usually have lower flow. I believe this is Rainbird's attempt at equalizing the flow from each emitter. I'm really hoping this product lasts long term because I hate having to water the flower bed and I don't want to install a bunch of sprinkler heads that limit where my wife can put her plants. This seems to be a nice set it and forget it solution that is worth a shot at trying. We're nearing the end of the growing season but the plants are still doing ok.

Great tubing that works well, still need to drop it...
Great tubing that works well, still need to drop it in the ground but above ground testing seems very promising. I have two complaints though: one, its hard to find end plugs that really fit it, had to go with an off brand 3/4in plug. Two, it kinks very easily so be gentle when straightening it out. Otherwise I a very excited to have my gardens be watered with this!

Error in Product Overview
The seventh bullet under Product Overview ("more details") is wrong. It says "Standard male and female hose thread ends, with removable end cap." But neither is true. I got mine home and saw that it is just the tube with raw cut ends. I called Rainbird, and they said it was an error. You have to buy a "faucet connection kit" and an "end closure." The connection kit itself costs more than the tube.

Really good for gardens or flower beds where 18" spacing works well. Can be buried for appearances. Also can be spliced or "T'ed" with 1/2" black distribution tubing if dedicated sprayers or drippers are needed.
