Thinwall Fittings Design

Sample Installation Assemblies

PVC Submain Riser Assembly
Typical subsurface drip irrigation riser assembly connects thinwall dripline to 2" to 8" PVC submains. PE Riser line tubing length varies depending on thinwall dripline depth and submain size and depth.





Layflat Submain Riser Assembly
Above ground applicatins where thinwall dripline connects directly to Layflat submain. For use with 0.636" and 0.875" thinwall driplines.




PE Submain Riser Assembly
Above ground applications where thinwall dripline connects directly to the PE submain. For use with 0.636" thinwall dripline only.
