We will now look at the components commonly used to connect Drip Lines to zone manifolds for a Strawberry Irrigation system using Solid Drip Tubing with Emitters
3 Connecting Drip Irrigation Lines For Each Zone Using Drip Solid Drip Tubing with Self Piercing Emitters
There are two methods we will look at for Installing Drip Lines with Self Piercing Emitters:
In these illustrations all lines are removable with some effort but "removable lines" are removed via swivel connectrs while "non-removable lines" need to be pulled from the connection assembly. It is a matter of convenience.
1. Solid Drip Tubing with Self Piercing Emitters Non-Removable Lines
2. Solid Drip Tubing with Self Piercing Emitters w/Removable Lines
As you can see from the above illustration to adjust the configuration to enable lines to be easily removable for re-location or winterization an additional nipple fitting is added and the 75M600 is replaced with a DD-CMP700. As with the non-removable system, if no flow control is desired or required the DD-CMP700 can be directly inserted into the Quick Tap assembly.
Alternative Methods For Installing Drip Lines with Solid Drip Tubing
Before we move on to components for installing drip emitter tubing we will show you a few quick methods for installing drip lines to a lateral distribution line. These methods require the distribution line to be cut for installation as opposed to the convenience of using saddles and taps. The components used may be slightly less durable but high quality nonetheless. These methods can only be employed using 940 series solid drip tubing.
We will now move on to component options when using Drip Emitter Tubing.
