Drip tape must be used on low water pressure (approx 10 PSI), achieved by installing a pressure regulator (IRH819). The absolute max operating pressure for 15 mil is 35 PSI. At 10 PSI, this drip tape distributes 40 gallons per hour (GPH) per 100'. Every 2000' of drip tape requires a filter (IRF176 or IRF410) and a pressure regulator.

Features and Specifications:

  • Multiple Inlet Orifices ensure a continuous water flow to each dripper.
  • Turbulent Flow Path design provides larger internal dimensions offering higher resistance to clogging.
  • Engineered extruded high quality polyethylene film ensures round sides providing higher resistance to insect bites and field abrasion.
  • Off center outlets restricts water movement along the tape and ensures each drop falls to the soil.
  • Slit design outlet will prevent root intrusion and soil ingestion.
  • Longer flow path ensures true drip flow – no squirts.
  • A low emitter exponent will ensure less flow and pressure variation on steep slopes to help increase emission uniformity.
  • Lower winding tension to ensure less retraction in the field and avoid kinking and snaking during installation.
  • The 5/8” size BTF model features multiple inlet filters.
  • Good for 4-5 seasons.

Unlike other tapes, Chapin Tape has a unique extruded film profile with extra strength and thickness where it is needed most: the rounded tape edges that increase resistance to abrasion and insect damage.

With decades of proven performance, Chapin Tape provides consistently outstanding performance – premium performance for the most demanding applications.

Ends of these drip tapes leak like a sieve.

I have reviewed your instructions on the site for putting on the connectors and ends caps. I got them wet and push the tape all the way up then screwed back the locking portion and they leak. Some not as bad as others. I have even wrapped the area with pipe thread seal tape and that fixes some of them, but many of them still leak. I feel like these waste a lot of water. I also have your 10 psi pressure reducer on the line. I think this product is very inconsistent. But I have it set up now so will live with it this season.

Efficient drip system

We've been using this drip tape for 3 weeks now and it's been working great! Our plants are sufficiently watered without wasting any of our precious high desert water. The tape does now and flex in the heat even with it being staked down, but I'm sure it will be fine once get it figured out.
