Before installation

Before use, store the drip line/tape in a protected area and leave wrapping in place until ready to install.

  • Moisture can damage the cardboard.
  • Sunlight in the cases of clear shrink wrap without cardboard wrap can create a magnifying glass effect through water droplets, which burns the tube.

Prepare the soil and beds before planting. The particle size should be small and uniform for subsurface drip irrigation (SDI) and thin wall installation. The soil should be prepared to the depth required of the lateral placement.

For example, if it is SDI 30 cm (12 in), the soil needs to be prepared to at least 30 cm (12 in) depth.

If ground insects are a problem, use either Rivulis Defend (where available) or insecticides before or during installation.
