DRIP TAPE
Increase farm profits--water more crops for less cost!

We now carry Aqua-Traxx®  drip tape, perfect for row crops and raised beds, offering a proportionally balanced cross-section design which provides uniform distrubution and reduces clogging. Its seamless construction reduces leakage at fittings. By placing water, fertilizer and crop protection materials precisely where plants need them, drip tape irrigation can increase crop quality and yields, while minimizing irrigation expense. 

Suitable for both large farm operations and small gardens, drip tape can be installed on top of soil, under plastic or subsurface, and is available in an assortment of wall thicknesses, emitter spacings and flow rates. Because of Aqua-Traxx®  drip tape's material strength, design, and quality production standards, it's the drip tape you can count on year after year.

We also will continue to carry T-Tape® in the shorter 100' lengths. (Both T-Tape®  and Aqua-Traxx®  drip tapes are 5/8" and are interchangeable).

Drip tape is meant to be used in straight lines. If you want to make sharp turns use the tape-loc elbow or tee, found on tape fittings page.
DRIP TAPE: THE MOST ECONOMICAL CHOICE FOR GARDENS OF ALL SIZES--from home-grown to market garden! 

DRIP TAPE is the lowest cost drip system for rows and raised beds, suitable for any scale of commercial agriculture or backyard gardening.  It requires low pressure: 15 PSI maximum for the 15 mil. tape and 12 PSI for the others. 

15 mil. tape is much more durable than the 6, 8 or 10 mil. and is strongly suggested for use where soil is heavy or presents a rougher terrain or when tape is to be used repeatedly for many years.

With care, the 15 mil. tape will last up to 7 years when covered or 2-5 years when left exposed to sunlight (Depending on mil thickness nd environmental contitions). The lighter weight tapes will undoubtedly not last as long. Although the 6 mil. tape is the cheapest it is easily damaged and will likely need to be replaced each year. It is used primarily for large scale commercial crop production  (in strawberries, for example.) .

Drip tape's turbulent flow track emitter design provides a high level of watering uniformity. Each outlet is part of a true drip emitter, providing reliable drip flow without squirting. A specially designed slit outlet reduces insect damage, impedes root intrusion, and virtually eliminates start-up plugging from external contaminants. A fine (200) mesh filter and a low pressure (10 or 12 PSI) regulator is recommended for use with this tape. 5/8” drip tape fittings are used with this tape.

The 100', 80', & 60' rolls of T-tape are the most economical and convenient form for use in home garden situations.

These tape rolls come in 15 mi. (the toughest) with 8" emitter spacing. The Low flow tape emits at half the rate (20 gph/100') of the High flow (40 gph/100').
