NETAFIM USA Introduces TECHLINE® EZ, Industry's First 12mm On-Surface Drip Line for Small Sites
FRESNO, CA—Netafim USA introduces Techline® EZ, an innovative 12mm drip line for “looped” on-surface irrigation installations.
Designed for labor-savings, Techline EZ efficiently irrigates a 1,500 square-foot shrub or planting area with one 250-foot roll of 12mm Netafim tubing and two fittings that include a Low Volume Control Zone Kit and Line Flushing Valve. Dripper spacings are placed at 12 and 18 inches for uniform water application to the root zones.
Techine EZ’s single on-surface looped layout can be installed within an hour and “disappears” into the landscape with mulch or ground cover. Techline EZ’s easy-to-install drip system ensures greater water savings, healthier root zones and presents greater profit opportunities for irrigation contractors.
Techline EZ is manufactured from the same linear low-density
polyethylene tubing as Netafim’s popular Techline® CV, the industry standard for reliable low volume performance. Techline EZ contains a minimum of 25 percent post-consumer recycled materials and Netafim is the only manufacturer that offers drip products that qualify for LEED credits.
Techline EZ Incorporates the same state-of-the-art features as Techline CV to ensure reliable operation in all harsh conditions, including:
- Dripper spacings at 12 and 18 inches for uniform water application.
- Continuous self-flushing to eliminate debris throughout the entire operation, not just at the beginning or end of a cycle.
- Pressure compensation that delivers equal amounts of water over a broad pressure range, from 6 to 50 psi.
- Anti-siphon emitters and physical root barriers.
Techline EZ can be connected to a previously-installed 17mm Techline CV system and has the same dripper flow rates: 0.26, 0.4, 0.6 and 0.9 gph.
Netafim is a global leader in low volume irrigation and has manufactured drip line for more than 40 years, principally for demanding agricultural environments. Netafim USA offers an extensive line of low volume products for turf and landscape, including Techline CV with built-in check valve, and a full range of accessories, including Techfilters®, In-Line Check Valves, Point Source Drip products, Self-Piercing Drippers, Micro-Tubing, Techflow Drippers and more.
