- Customer feedback
10 Mil Drip Tape is a medium weight Drip Tape. Best used on Medium to Rocky Soils and on one or 2-season crops.
- 510-12-450 is the most popular Drip Irrigation Tape used by Vegetable Farmers.
- 18 and 24" Spacing is generally used for Mums and other potted plants.
- 10 Mil Drip Tape may be re-used for 2 or 3 years in short-season crops and if it is kept out of the weather and away from mice when not in use.
- Drip Tape needs 6 PSI To work properly. More than 12 PSI will cause drip tape to split! We recommend our PR-STAKE to measure pressure before going to drip tape.
- Pressure Regulators are a must to reduce pressure on any irrigation system and keep it in a safe zone. (Use a 10 PSI or 12 PSI and choose based on your Flow)

FAQ: How much drip tape can I run at one time on a garden hose? How much water is this putting out?
The Flow of your drip tape is the 3rd set of numbers in the Model #. This number is stated in GPM per every 100' of tape that you run.
EXAMPLE: EA5081245-7500 This tape puts out .45 gpm for every 100 feet that you run. OR 4.5 gpm for every 1,000' of tape that you run.
TRY IT : --- I have 12 gpm of water coming out of your garden hose at the field/plot. Therefore, I can run 2,666 feet of drip tape at one time. (MATH: 12 divided by .45= 26.666 x 100 feet = 2,666 feet)
--- I have 14 gpm of water " " " ... Therefore, I can run 3,111 feet of drip tape at one time.
Take your Drip Tape's Flow (.22, .34, .45, .67, 1.34 and divide it into your GPM. Multiply that # x 100 feet.
How do you figure your GPM ? Take your garden hose close to your garden plot or field. Run it for approx 2 minutes.
Then time yourself filling up a 5 gallon bucket. How long did it take? 30 seconds would mean you roughly have 10 gpm.
Lay with Stripes Up (The blue-stripe shows the side of the Drip Tape that has the slits. You want the slits/drippers face up. If any trash happens to enter the drip tape, it is easy to stop up slits /drippers that are face down. It is harder to push the trash upwards... so placing the drippers face up helps to prevent clogging.)

It seems that every time I turn on the TV, there's an ad for a sleep number bed. These beds apparently give you a good night's sleep. My sleep number is 1-800- 345-DRIP.
Even with the severity of the drought, I sleep good each night.
Thank you for helping us with another excellent crop, photos enclosed.
The 10 mil drip tape is good for my heavy soil. I plant watermelons and use the 12" spacing. They like the regular waterings but I don't use plastic (yet) so the 10 mil is good for my field. Thanks Berry Hill for the fast shipment!
