Direction of Water Flow

Our 1/4" tubing with inline emitters does not have a specific flow direction, so you can connect the tubing to your water source from any end.

How to attach the Tubing and Fittings

Briefly apply heat to the end of the tubing with hot (not quite boiling) water, or let the tubing lay out in the sun for an hour. This will soften the tubing, and help it push onto the barbed fittings more easily.

Using the Goof Plugs

Insert a goof plug into the end of each tubing run, to cap off the line.

Using the 1/4" Barbed Couplings

Insert the 1/4" Barbed Couplings into the start of each tubing run, to connect it to your main line 1/2" tubing.

Attaching to a water source

You can either attach each run of Habitech 1/4" Dripline to your main line 1/2" tubing, or if you wish to connect the 1/4" Dripline directly to a garden hose or spigot, you can use our 1/4" Irrigation Tubing Adapter.
