DIG’s 1/4 in. (.170 ID x .250 OD) polyethylene micro tubing is used in the installation of a drip irrigation system. It can be used either to extend drip emitters and micro-sprinklers from the ½” or ¾” polyethylene drip tubing to the plant areas, as extensions from the 4, 6 and 12-outlet drip manifolds or as the basis of a small patio system using ¼” barbed fittings. DIG’s versatile 1/4″ polyethylene micro tubing is available in black only and in coil lengths of 50′, 100′, 500′ and 1000′. This commercial-grade poly micro tubing is made of high quality, linear low-density polyethylene resin. The micro tubing is manufactured with an antioxidant and contains a minimum of 2% concentrated carbon black to protect the finished product from thermal degradation.

The 1/4″ poly micro tubing is used as the feeder line from the 1/2″ drip tubing to the plant area or plant locations. At the end of the micro tubing, a drip emitter, micro sprayer, 1/4” dripline or micro sprinkler can be added. Like the 1/2″ drip tubing, the micro tubing is suitable for any commercial or residential application. The micro tubing may be installed above the ground and covered with mulch to blend with the landscape, or extended from the 1/2″ drip tubing and installed below the ground. The micro tubing may also be used as the sole supply line for a small complete system for containers and potted patio gardens.
