Quarter-inch, half-inch, and three-quarter-inch tubing are standard sizes for the drip irrigation industry. In addition to those sizes, buyers are presented with a few other options, including 187 x 125, 620 x 710, 5/8, and more. With all these options, how can a water manager know what is correct for his job? 

Michael Pippen is a certified irrigation designer with a lifetime of experience in water management and is our guest to help us understand what steps to take to know what size tubing is “right” for our job. 

During this webinar, you will learn:

  1. What information from the job location is needed to make a size determination
  2. What online tools are available to help make the correct decision
  3. What the difference is between poly and vinyl tubing
  4. Why you need to know maximum run lengths and maximum amount of gallons.


This is going to be an informative free session.
