DIG 14-007 1/2" Black Polyethylene Tubing (.600 ID x .700 OD) (60 PSI) (500')

DIG’s premium quality 1/2" Black Polyethylene Tubing (.600 ID x .700 OD) is available in lengths of 500'. The poly drip tubing, commonly referred to as drip irrigation tubing, blank tubing, distribution tubing. PE tubing or drip hose, is used as the primary drip irrigation installation supply line, into which micro tubing, drip emitters, drip line or micro sprinklers are attached to deliver water to the plant areas. DIG’s durable drip irrigation tubing is made with Dow 7510, low-density polyethylene resin material with a minimum of 2%+ Carbon Black for extra resistance to the damaging effects of ultraviolet rays. DIG poly drip tubing exhibits a combination of outstanding environmental stress-cracking resistance and burst strength to meet every demand of drip irrigation system installations above or below grade.

About DIG Poly Drip Tubing

DIG .700 OD poly drip tubing is generally is used as the main lateral or the supply line to deliver water to the plant area in a drip irrigation system installation in commercial, residential or agricultural applications. The poly drip tubing may be installed above the ground and covered with mulch to blend with the landscape, or below grade.

DIG .700 OD poly drip tubing is available in 100', 200’, 500’ and 1000' and it is manufactured with Dow 7510 polyethylene resin and includes 2%+ Carbon Black for extra resistance to ultraviolet rays. DIG’s premium poly drip tubing dimension is .600 ID x .700 OD, a universally accepted size used in drip irrigation installations. The poly drip irrigation tubing size can vary by manufacturer, with some having larger or smaller ID and OD, and each size may display different flow characteristics

Poly Drip Tubing Installation Notes:

  1. Before you start, we highly recommend that you make a sketch of the garden or site with a detailed layout, mapping out the location of the poly drip tubing and micro tubing, the length of the drip tubing and the watering devices selected. This will make it easier to maintain the system at each new season or when expanding.
  2. Before unrolling the poly drip tubing from the inside or outside, depending on the type of coil used, leave it out in direct sunlight to warm it up. This will make it easier to work with.
  3. if the poly drip tubing is used in a below grade installation, we suggest digging a six to eight inch deep trench, to keep the poly drip tubing at a safe distance from cultivation practices. Leave the end of the poly drip tubing above the surface for periodic flushing.
  4. Last, we recommend not to exceed a total flow rate of 220 gallons per hour (3.6 GPM) on a single layout of drip irrigation tubing lateral.

Poly Drip Tubing Installation Steps:

  1. Using the poly drip tubing as a main lateral or as a sub lateral: Lay out the poly drip tubing per the sketch made. Secure the poly drip tubing to the ground using one of DIG’s stakes (pack of 1, model R60, pack of 10 R60-10, pack of 10, R62B) in key areas and add more stakes as you unroll the poly drip tubing. Add stakes every 6' - 10' and at the end of each section, or as needed. Extend additional drip irrigation tubing to the plant area. Several sections of poly drip tubing can be laid out through the site, leaving all ends open for flushing. An extra 1% of poly drip tubing length should be added to each lateral to compensate for contraction at low temperatures.
  2. Throughout the installation and per your sketch layout, add the black insert compression fittings if needed, such as tees (model C35) and elbows (model C36), leaving the end of the tubing open. To install the compression drip fittings, cut the tubing with a hand pruner, being careful to keep dirt from entering the line. Hold the drip fitting in one hand and the poly drip tubing in the other and force the drip tubing into the compression drip fitting by wiggling it from side to side.
  3. When completing the drip tubing layout task and before installing the drip emitters or micro sprinklers, turn the water on to flush the drip tubing. After flushing the line, close all the outlets of the drip tubing using the hose end cap (model Q58) or figure eight hose end (model F68B).
  4. The drip emitters are installed along the poly drip tubing at varying or at specific intervals. The distribution uniformity of water flow from the drip emitters along the poly drip tubing line will depend on the incoming pressure, number of drip emitters used per lateral, and the total length of the drip tubing used. It is very important to ensure high uniformity of water along the poly drip tubing by not exceeding our total flow recommendations (see Product Specifications).

Beware multiple "standard" 1/2" sizes
Tubing is good and easy to work with. Reasonably flexible for turns. Punching holes and inserting 1/4" ports is easy.
Beware, as a newbie I got burned by the fact that there are at least 3 different "standard" 1/2" tube sizes - What? This one has an I.D. of 0.600" (and is well labelled as such). So make sure your 1/2" fittings are for this rather large 1/2" standard.

Drip system for garden

will this pipe hold up in direct sunlight on a hot roof ?
A shopper on Nov 8, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I don't think any PVC use pipe holds up under direct sunlight especially on a roof
can this be used in the sun?
j j on Mar 12, 2011
BEST ANSWER: jj - I bought this same tubing in June of 2009, and installed it as my main drip line for some shrubs I put in. Part of the tubing is in direct sunlight (sitting on top of the ground, in the open), and part of it is actually buried in spots at the shrubs, etc. I have had no problems at all with the tubing in the sunlight. It has maintained its original flexibility, etc., and just the other day, I added in some additional drip nozzles in the exposed run for additional shrubs this year, and the tubing punched through fine with the tool to allow me to add the nozzles.
Hope this helps.
Joe
Can this be used for underground sprinklers?
ronald j on Mar 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We were do-it-yourselfers and it was our first time. We ended up returning the poly tubing because somebody told us we should use 3/4 pvc instead because it is stronger and would have a longer lifetime expectancy.

Sorry I couldn't help.
Josh.
Any color other than black for 1/2" irrigation tubing?
John C on May 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I think it only comes in black because this is only for drip lines, low pressure. It typically gets covered up by dirt, wood chips, decorative rock, etc. Incidentally, it is NOT suitable for regular sprinkler pressure heads. If you want another color such as brown, check with Home Depot or Lowes, as I think they carried it as of about a year ago, anyway.

Miles W on Dec 16, 2015
can this be used above ground in sun
j j on Mar 12, 2011
BEST ANSWER: I purchased this product specifically for its UV protection. I used it to build a solar heater for my pool placed on the roof of my shed in direct sunlight. It has been up there for 2 years (taken in for the winter) and is showing no sign of sun damage. It is doing a great job of heating up the water for the pool. Being black, it does get a bit hot in the sun. So if you are going to water plants with it and a large section of pipe will be in direct sunlight, make sure you set the system up in a manner that allows most of the water to run out after watering so you are not blasting plants with a lot of hot water each time the system starts up. It will also help when you go to winterize the system if it is self-draining. Good luck with your project.
