Water Source Connection Items

System Materials Checklist Printable PDF Version

With your flow information and a design plan sketched out, its time to work up a materials list of all the parts you will need for your drip irrigation system. Start with the parts for your water source connection; make sure to add all the required items and any adapter fittings that may be needed. Next, include the items necessary for your water distribution. Be sure to include enough 1/2 & 1/4 drip tubing, fittings and tubing holder stakes to cover the entire area to be watered. The final parts to add will be the drip emitters, soaker hose dripline, sprayers and bubblers.

We have included a materials checklist for you to use in conjunction with your design plan to source out all the items you will need for your drip system. Use the columns to the left for hash marks when you are counting up the individual items, then use the columns to the right to record the total needed for each part.

QUICK TIP: When creating your parts list, its best to included a few extra fittings, emitters and goof plugs. These extra parts can be used to make repairs to your system if necessary and can help to keep your down time to a minimum.

Sprinkler irrigation systems are commonly used in lawn irrigation systems and other planted areas where a spray or mist is desirable. For plants that require uniform coverage of water (grass, ground cover, seeds) a sprinkler irrigation system is appropriate.

If you are installing lawn sprinkler irrigation systems, Irrigation Direct carries a variety of supplies and parts like an adjustable nozzles for Rain Bird sprinkler heads. Our shrub adapters are perfect for garden sprinklers and shrub zones.

Combine pop-ups and rotors with electronic sprinkler controllers (timers), and inline valves to automate your landscape sprinkler irrigation system. Browse our Sprinkler System Supplies and Parts to find sprinkler nozzles, bubblers, swing assemblies, cut-off risers, Marlex 90s, and more.


Drip irrigation is a watering method which delivers water to plants slowly and right where they need it at the roots. Where typical pop-up sprinklers spray water into the air and onto plants, drip irrigation systems combine flexible poly drip tubing and drip emitters or "drippers" to both conserve water and save money.

Drip irrigation systems are not affected by wind and will greatly reduce evaporation and runoff common with traditional irrigation systems. Drip irrigation is the perfect solution for raised vegetable garden beds, hanging baskets, and potted plants.
