A. Drip Spikes
This pressure-compensating drip spike is useful wherever rising and falling elevations or long header hoses could affect pressure. Attaches to 1/4" feeder lines coming off a header hose. Just 2 spikes, one on either side of the trunk, are often enough to water a small tree. Also good for use with gravity-feed water sources such as rain barrels. Built-in insect baffles and filters help prevent blockage. Requires a straight connector and 1/4" feeder line to connect to header hose. Available in 1 gph and 2 gph versions.
B. Pressure-Compensating Drippers
This low-profile pressure-compensating dripper (it really trickles rather than drips) is ideal wherever rising and falling elevations or long header hoses could affect pressure. Can be installed directly in the header hose or on the end of 1/4" feeder lines coming off a header hose. Built-in insect baffles keep pests from blocking the lines. Also great for keeping birdbaths topped up.
C. Feeder Line Stakes
Used to hold 1/4" and 1/8" feeder lines and drippers off the ground, these toploading stakes have thick triangular bases for stability. Often used in conjunction with pressure-compensating drippers (see item B).
D. Poly Stake
6" stake for holding header hose or dripper hose in place.
E. Galvanized Stakes
Can be used anywhere to hold hose in place. 8" long.
F. Hose Mounting Clips
For attaching 1/4" or 1/2" hose and tubing to wooden structures.
G. 1/4" Straight Connectors
Attach 1/4" feeder line to larger hose (1/2" or 5/8") through a hole punched in the wall of the larger tubing.
H. 1/4" T-Connectors & Cross Connectors
Split a 1/4" line to branch out to two or three watering devices from a single feeder line.
J. 1/4" Feeder Line
1/4" polyethylene tubing, 50' long. For connecting drippers, sprayers and sprinklers to the main header hose.
K. Soaker Hose
A 1/4" inside diameter porous hose that weeps or drips over its entire length. Attaches to header hose with 1/4" connectors. (The 100' hose is also available as part of a kit, our #XC355.)
L. Drip Pipe
Not to be confused with soaker hose, this solid-wall, flexible 1/2" tubing has pressure-compensating drippers installed in it every 12". Cheaper than buying the tubing and drippers separately. Connects to 1/2" fittings used with the header hose. Each dripper leaks at a rate of 1 gallon per hour. Can be cut into smaller pieces. Made in USA.
M. to O. 1/2" Compression Fittings for Drip Pipe
These ABS compression fittings firmly grab the outside of a standard 1/2" I.D. (5/8" O.D.) drip pipe.
