DIG’s Earthline Brown PC™ Dripline tubing consists of 100’ and 250′ rolls of dripline with 1-GPH pressure compensating (PC) drip emitters built into the interior wall of the dripline every 12″ or 18”. Each PC drip emitter consists of a cylinder with a labyrinth-like water passage, a filter and a silicon diaphragm. Each PC drip emitter continuously adjusts to varying incoming water pressures ranging from 10 to 45 PSI, ensuring a constant flow rate regardless of any elevation along the dripline. In addition, the drip emitter’s self-flushing mode allows particles to pass harmlessly through, providing reliable performance and a longer life.
For commercial and residential applications, install this irrigation drip line above the ground and, if desired, cover it with mulch to blend with the landscape. The PC dripline is ideal for plants in preset spacing, narrow plantings, and closely spaced plants in rows, as well as for hedges, groundcover, shrubs and roses. For complete coverage of an area, use multiple lines of dripline, placing the lines 16 to 24 inches apart. In addition, the dripline can be used around a house foundation to reduce soil movement, cracking and slab damage.

DIG’s Earthline Brown PC™ Dripline tubing delivers constant deep watering directly to the plant roots. The flow uniformity from each drip emitter provides efficient watering over the length of the dripline. The dripline can be used in a wide range of layouts to accommodate most landscape and garden watering requirements. The 100’ or 250′ coils of dripline have 1 GPH (gallons per hour) pressure compensating inline drip emitters built into the inner side of the dripline every 12″ or 18”, and can be expanded by connecting the coils together for lengths of up to 369’ @ 45 PSI using the 18″ spacing.
For commercial and residential applications, install the dripline above the ground and, if desired, cover the dripline with mulch to blend with the landscape. The dripline is ideal for plantings in preset spacing, narrow plantings and closely spaced plants in rows, as well as for hedges, groundcover, shrubs and roses. It can also be used around trees, or can be laid around house foundations to reduce soil movement, cracking and slab damage. To protect house foundations in areas with severe weather changes, install the dripline above and on flat ground 4” to 8” from the wall. Keeping the soil at a constant moisture level will help reduce expansion and contraction, which put stress on foundations.
Dripline irrigation can be used as part of any drip irrigation installation. It can be extended or connected into the 1/2” drip irrigation tubing using compression fittings with .700 OD, DIG Nut Lock™ fittings or DIG 17 mm brown barbed fittings.
To install, first review the garden area and make a drawing of the garden or site with your preferred layout of the dripline.
If automation is required, use one of DIG’s hose end timers or battery-operated timers or controllers. The ideal irrigation controller should have flexible scheduling and two to four start times per day for added flexibility.
