Ro-Drip Drip Tape

Ro-Drip Drip Tape Features

  • Vortex flow action/ turbulent flow channel
  • Expanding flow channel
  • Precision-molded channel

Ro-Drip Drip Tape provides a reliable, cost-effective solution for all your sub-surface and above ground drip irrigation needs. Ro-Drip is specifically engineered to deliver uniform flow rates while addressing the most difficult maintenance issue faced by drip growers today: blockage during high contaminant conditions.

Our patented Ro-Drip design employs two independent antiplugging systems: Vortex Flow Action, which resists clogs by keeping particulate in suspension; and our exclusive Expanding Flow Channel, which reacts to blockages by actually changing shape, often purging even the toughest particulate build-up. Additionally, our patented manufacturing process creates a precision-molded flow channel with a large cross section, which can pass larger particulate and deliver the uniform flow rates you demand.

Suggested Use of Ro-Drip Drip Tape:

5 mil: Used where rocks and pests are at a minimum and where cost is an important factor.

6 mil: Used where rocks and pests are at a minimum and where cost is an important factor. This tape is more resilient than 5 mil and more cost effective than 8 mil.

8 mil: Recommended for new drip tape users seeking a thin walled yet durable tape and for growers who double crop or use their tape for long season crops.

10 mil: Added thickness makes this tape more resistant to mechanical damage from rocky soils and insects than its thinner walled counterparts. This product is well suited for multi-season use in surface or sub-surface applications.
