Emitters: aka Drip Emitters, Irrigation Drippers, Drip Irrigation Emitters, Button Drippers & Flag Emitters: Drip Irrigation Emitters distribute water droplets at a specified flow rate when used as part of a drip irrigation system and designed to water the root zones of plants. Drip irrigation emitters come in a variety sizes, styles, and flow rates. These drip irrigation emitters have barbed or threaded bases. Drip Irrigation Emitters with barbed ends are either poked directly into 1/2" drip tubing or inserted into the end of 1/4" tubing. Drip Irrigation Emitters with threaded bases are screwed into micro tubing stakes and risers. All drip emitters are used in conjunction with a Pressure Regulator and Drip Filter.
Pressure Compensating Drip Emitters: Pressure compensating drip irrigation emitters (PC Emitters) deliver a consistent output of water, even with changes in elevation or pressure due to long drip runs. These drip irrigation emitters are best used in landscapes and gardens that have drops in elevation that would cause an increase in pressure.
Non Pressure Compensating Drip Emitters: Non pressure compensating drip irrigation emitters output will vary with changes in elevation and pressure. These drip emitters are best used where the water zone is flat and level with very little elevation changes in the landscape.
Sprayers: aka Micro Sprays & Jets: Micro spray covers a category of spray caps, bases, one-piece, and adjustable sprayers and bubblers that are small and designed to operate with drip irrigation systems. These drip irrigation sprayers can be used for ground cover, flower beds, vegetable gardens and landscapes where you need to water a large area.
