Irrigation Fittings and Pipework

Irrigation fittings and Pipework are commonly used in both consumer and commercial hydroponic systems. As long as you match sizes, our components will work in all off the shelf or home-made systems.


We carry quality, reasonably priced pipe and fittings in commonly used sizes within the hydroponics field. These are 6mm, 13mm, 16mm, 20mm and 25mm.


Pipes

Pipes are essential if you’re moving water or nutrient solution from one place to another - with the addition of a pump you’ll be able to fill your storage tank from a tap at a sink or drain your system when changing the reservoir into somewhere like the toilet.


Connectors

Pipe Connectors come in a range of sizes including “T’s”, “Y’s”, Reducers, cross pieces and nipples. You’ll find all common sizes of pipe have appropriate connector fittings. With connectors you can connect two ends of pipe safe in the knowledge there won’t be any leaks.


Drippers

Drippers are the interface between your irrigation system and plants, as the dripper position dictates where the nutrient solution will be delivered to plant roots. There's several different types of drippers that are all capable of different flow rates and are suitable for different applications. Flood drippers are best used in Hydro or Aquaponic applications while a simple arrow dripper is perfect for substrates with a higher water holding capacity like soil and coco coir.


Flow Control Taps

Flow Control Taps work by reducing the space the water has to pass through which acts to reduce the pressure on the other side of the control tap. This is perfect for high pressure systems that need to be turned down or when a larger pump than required is utilised. Flow control taps can also be used to balance pressure across large systems where multiple pumps are used - ensuring all plants are fed the same amount of water each feed.


Manifolds

Manifolds equally split a single input into multiple outputs so they’re perfect for making your own dripper system. We offer manifolds with 4 outputs, 6 outputs and 8 outputs in a number of sizes. Manifolds are most often used along with dripper line or tube as the output with a dripper stake on the end.


If you're having trouble fitting pipe onto any components, warm up the end of pipe you want to attach by dunking it in a mug of warm or hot water from the kettle. Make sure it’s not boiling when you submerge the pipe. The pipe will become more malleable while warm and will return to being as rigid as it was when the temperature cools - ensuring a tight fitting.


You can use as many drippers per plant as you want - most complete systems are shipped with one dripper per plant but using more per plant will ensure the plant will still be irrigated if one of the lines or drippers get blocked.
