DIGÃƒÂ¢Ã¢šÂ¬s 1/4" Black Vinyl Tubing (.160 ID x .220 OD) commercial-grade Vinyl Micro Tubing is available in black or brown and in coil lengths of 50', 100' and 500'. 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 vinyl micro tubing is used in a wide range of drip irrigation applications, including as feeder lines from the 1/2" drip tubing to extend drip emitters or micro sprinklers to the plants, as extensions from the 4-, 6- and 12-outlet drip manifolds or as the supply line for a complete 1/4" drip system.

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, 1/4ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢šÂ¬ 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.
