Distribution Tubing…1/4″ in size with no orifices is most often branched off 1/2″ dripper line or 1/2″ supply tubing to individual plants with a drip emitter at the end.
This tubing which has no orifices may also be used as the mainline in smaller projects such as hanging baskets or small flower pot projects on decks and patios.
Below is an example of 1/4″ Distribution Tubing attached to 1/2″ Supply Tubing by a 1/4″ Barb Connector:
As mentioned above, you can also end this tubing with a drip emitter. The image below illustrates this method.
On a side note…If you punch a hole in the wrong location on the poly tubing….no worries! We also stock 1/4″ barb plugs. They actually are dual plugs which enable you plug either 250 Series OR 400 Series barb fitting holes.
The 1/4″ barb fittings pictured above may be used with this 1/4″ Distribution Tubing. As you can see, our Drip Irrigation Landscape Kit includes the 1/4″ distribution tubing as well as the 1/4″ barb fittings.
We offer four sizes of Irri-Gator Drip Irrigation Kits as well as the landscape kit pictured above. Additional fittings and accessories may be purchased to customize a kit to meet your needs.
