Replacement drip tape for SFG kit

Replacement drip tape for SFG kit

Post  Peel on 6/1/2014, 4:45 pm

2 years ago I purchased an irrigation kit from the SFG store, that consisted of rows irrigation tape with 4-inch emitter spacing. I had several leaks in the tape this last year, and need to replace the tape. When I bought the kit, SFG sold replacement tape at that time, but it appears that the online store no longer carries either the kit, nor the replacement irrigation tape. I've done various google and bing searches and cannot find this irrigation tape with the 4-inch spacing anywhere. Does anyone know the manufacturer, or where I can find the replacement tape?

Thanks.

Found Replacement Drip Tape

Post  Peel on 6/6/2014, 5:45 pm

A follow-up post in case anyone else finds themselves looking for the same thing. I was able to locate a source for the drip tape with 4" emitter spacing. Toro makes a product called Aqus-Traxx that has an 8mm sidewall thickness, and is the same 5/8" diameter as the original that I purchased through the SFG website. I found one mail-order place (drip works) that sells it in 100' or 2000' lengths ($12 and $105 respectively). I received it last night and replacement was a breeze. Since they sell the tape in one continuous length, I purchased end clamps for when I cut each row. It turns out that I didn't need them, as I used my food saver/seal-a-meal to seal the end of each length. Worked out great. I was able to replace all 6, 14' lengths in my raised bed in about 15 minutes. No more leaks!

Thanks for the follow-up. The seal-a-meal trick is clever!
