What Is 4 mm Bubble Tubing?

Bubble tubing, otherwise known as porous pipe, can be utilised in several self-made systems. Bubble Tubing is a robust 4 mm inside diameter tubing with many fine perforations that leak air, as bubbles, or water and nutrient solutions, for irrigation.

If the bubble tubing is used with an air pump, the porous pipe acts as an air stone, with small bubbles rising along the entire length of pipe. If the bubble tubing is driven with a submersible pump in a reservoir, the porous tubing acts as a drip irrigation system, which is perfect for pots, borders, and raised beds.

Use Bubble Tubing For Aeration

Bubble tubing is a cost-effective solution to any nutrient aeration or drip irrigation requirements. Bubble tubing is versatile. The piping is fairly flexible, it allows gentle bends, so you can shape it to aerate precisely where you need it.

Use Bubble Tubing For Irrigation

If you're using bubble tubing as an irrigation solution, you can run a length of pipe through each row of plants and the tube will drip water/nutrient solution down the entire row. This method allows you to irrigate large areas, without the use of drippers. It is suited to plants in pots or the ground in soil, as well as for hydroponic applications.

How Do I Use Bubble Tuning?

Garden tip: Bubble tubing is more brittle than normal pipe. Take care not to over bend it. For small spaces and complex shapes, it is recommended to use 4 mm Tee’s and elbows if a greater than 90-degree angle is required.

When using bubble tubing as an aerator, run it beneath the water-line with normal, non-permeable 4 mm air line tubing, connected with a 4 mm tee.

When creating your own bubble emitting aerator with this tubing, use 4 mm Tee’s rather than straight connectors to maintain an even pressure through the piping, ensuring a uniform distribution of bubbles. A single tee and 20 cm of bubble tubing can create a ring bubble emitter. You can create any shape or size you like using irrigation fittings.

Garden tip: If you're using Bubble Tubing as an irrigation solution, do not use stop-ends. Instead, use irrigation Tee's to maintain an even pressure across the pipe.
