Netafim Techline Low EmitterNetafim Techline professional products, including Techline, Techline CV, Techline RW and Techline EZ, now feature low 0.26 GPH emitter flow rates for optimal water absorption in dense clay soils.

Techline is the only dripline product that offers a wide range of flow rates to accommodate irrigation requirements for clay, loam and sandy soil conditions. Techline flow rates include 0.26, 0.4, 0.6 and 0.9 GPH.

Because of the dense structure of clay, it absorbs water at a much slower rate than loam or sandy soil. Clay typically absorbs water at 0.10 inches to 0.20 inches per hour, while loam and sandy soils absorb water at a faster rate, generally 1.25 inches to 2 inches per hour.

Installing Techline with a 0.26 GPH flow rate allows the irrigation to percolate through the clay slowly and efficiently for distribution out to the root zones, resulting in more precise coverage and less waste.

Techline and Techline CV are designed for use on all turf and landscape applications. Techline RW is installed with reclaimed water, and Techline EZ is used in on-surface drip systems.
