1/8″ Vinyl Micro Tubing

DIG’s 1/8″ commercial-grade Vinyl Micro Tubing (.118 ID x .187 OD) is available in black and in a coil length of 50′. Made of high-quality vinyl, the micro tubing is flexible and relatively soft. It is manufactured with an antioxidant and contains a minimum of 2% concentrated Carbon Black to protect the finished product from thermal degradation. The micro tubing is primarily used as the feeder line to the plant location from a drip emitter outlet or from a Maverick 12-outlet drip manifold.

Features

  • Available in 50′ and 100′ coils
  • Contains a minimum of 2% concentrated Carbon Black and an antioxidant to protect the drip tubing from thermal degradation
  • Used to extend from the Maverick 12-outlet drip manifold to the plant location
  • Softer, more flexible and easier to use than poly micro tubing
  • Meets the demands of micro irrigation systems for above- or below-ground layouts in landscape and residential gardening installations
  • Interchangeable with other manufacturers’ brands of the same-OD-size micro tubing

About

1/8″ Vinyl Micro Tubing is used as the feeder line from a number of products, including the Maverick 12-outlet drip manifold, the barb or nipple outlet of many drip emitters and all models of currently available spray sticks. It is suitable for any commercial or residential application above or below the ground.

Installation:

Using the micro tubing as a feeder line to the plant location:

  1. From the manifold outlet or drip emitter, extend measured lengths of the 1/8″ micro tubing to the plant location.
  2. Secure the micro tubing to the manifold outlet or drip emitter outlet nipple.
  3. Secure the other end of the micro tubing near the plant with a stake (model P33B or P35B).
