Netafim Techline Designs Low Emitter to Fight Dense Soils

Updated Feb 27, 2013

Netafim EmitterNetafim Techline is now featuring low 0.26 GPH emitter flow rates for optimal water absorption in dense clay soils.

Techline has a wide range of flow rates to accommodate irrigation requirements for clay, loam and sandy soil conditions. Techline flow rates include: 0.26, 0.4, 0.6 and 0.9 GPH.

Because of the dense structure of clay, it absorbs water at a much slower rate than loam or sandy soil. Clay typically absorbs water at 0.10 to 0.20 inch per hour, while loam and sandy soils absorb water at a faster rate, generally 1.25 to 2.00 inches per hour.

Installing Techline with a 0.26 GPH flow rate allows the irrigation to percolate through the clay slowly and efficiently for distribution out to the root zones, resulting in more precise coverage and less waste.

The product line also includes a built-in check valve to prevent low head drainage; pressure compensation for even, precise watering; continuously self-flushing anti-siphon to eliminate clogging; and a physical root barrier that prevents root intrusion without reliance on chemicals.

Techline and Techline CV are designed for use on all turf and landscape applications; Techline RW is installed with reclaimed water; and Techline EZ is used in on-surface drip systems.
