Extremely versatile and flexible, DIG’s 1/4″ Microline Dripline presents key advantages over other irrigation methods, utilizing low-cost, small-diameter dripline that can be used in any part of the garden for a water-efficient drip irrigation system. The dripline’s cylindrical labyrinth drip emitters are inserted into the interior wall of the 1/4” micro tubing every 6″, 9″ or 12″ spacing. It can be installed in a wide range of above-ground application layouts, or used under mulch or bark to conserve water or for aesthetic reasons. The dripline is designed to be extended from the drip tubing or micro tubing using a 1/4″ barb, or attached into our four- or six-outlet drip manifolds. It can be used in planter boxes, vegetable gardens, window boxes, box gardens, looped around individual plants or trees, in narrow paths of planting areas or where total saturation is desired along the drip line path, while eliminating discoloration of fences, windows and walls due to water staining.

The 1/4″ Microline Dripline is 1/4″ micro tubing with .65 GPH @ 25 PSI labyrinth-like in-line drip emitters built into the interior wall of the micro tubing at pre spaced intervals of 6″, 9″ or 12″. The drip line’s discharge flow varies with pressures from a low of 15 PSI to a high of 25 PSI, with higher discharge at higher pressures and lower discharge at lower pressures.
Available in two colors, black or brown, the 1/4″ Microline dripline can be used for plantings in preset spacing, in narrow planting areas, for vegetable garden boxes, window boxes, large pots, closely spaced plants in rows, as well as for hedges, groundcovers, shrubs and roses. It can also be used around trees by looping a few rounds of drip line around the tree and connecting it to the drip tubing. The Microline dripline is available in 50’ or 100’ lengths and it is recommended to install a 25 PSI pressure regulator when installing the 1/4″ dripline. For commercial and residential applications, install this dripline above the ground and if desired cover with mulch to blend with the landscape.
Basic installation recommendations for this product include first reviewing the area and then making a drawing of the garden or site with your preferred layout.
If automation is required, use one of DIG’s hose end timers or battery operated controllers. The ideal controller should have flexible scheduling and two to four start times per day for added flexibility.
