The flexible 1/2” polyethylene dripline has large emitters regularly
spaced in the line. With the dripline hidden about six inches below ground,
effluent is distributed slowly and uniformly, reducing ponding, even in
difficult soils and hilly terrain. WASTEFLOW is built to last. It is
guaranteed to be trouble-free from root intrusion with built-in
nano-ROOTGUARD® protection, and the dripline wall is protected from
organic growth with the Geoshield lining. WASTEFLOW provides uniform
distribution. The emitters have a Coefficient of variation of less than
.05. Use 600 series compression adapters or lockslip fittings to connect
the dripline to PVC pipe.
Nano-ROOTGUARD® ProtectionWASTEFLOW dripline features patented
nano-ROOTGUARD technology to prevent roots from clogging the emission
points. The pre-emergent, Treflan®, is bound into WASTEFLOW emitters
when they are molded to divert roots from growing into the emitter outlet.
The system is guaranteed against root intrusion for 15 years.
BACTERICIDE ProtectionGeoshield® is incorporated into the inner lining
and emitters of WASTEFLOW dripline to prevent bacteria from forming and
eliminates the need to scour the tubing. It is a tin based formula that
defeats the energy system of microbial cells. This means smaller pumps or
larger zones can be used with WASTEFLOW dripline than unprotected dripline.
PC vs. CLASSICGeoflow, Inc. offers WASTEFLOW dripline in both pressure
compensating (WASTEFLOW PC) and non-compensating (WASTEFLOW Classic)
models. We recommend that WaSTeflOW PC be used when the advantages are of
substantial economic value.
- Very long runs.
- Steep slopes. Systems should be designed for the dripline lateral to
follow the contour. If this is possible, the extra cost of pressure
regulators required for WaSTeflOW Classic would likely be less than the
incremental cost of WaSTeflOW pC...
- Rolling terrain. If the difference in height from trough to peak
exceeds six feet then WaSTeflOW PC should be used.
- Vacuum relief valves must be placed at the top of each rise.
WASTEFLOW PC and WASTEFLOW Classic can be interchanged to meet filter and
zone flow requirements
Geoflow Wasteflow PC Drip Tubing Specifications
The dripline shall consist of nominal sized one-half inch linear low
density polyethylene tubing, with turbulent flow drip emitters bonded to
the inside wall. The drip emitter flow passage shall be 0.032” x
0.045” square. The tubing shall have an outside diameter (O.D.) of
approximately .64-inches and an inside diameter (I.D.) of approximately
.55-inches. The tubing shall consist of three layers; the inside layer
shall be a Geoshield® protection, the middle layer shall be black and
the outside layer shall be purple striped for easy identification. The
dripline shall have emitters regularly spaced 24” (or 18” or
12”) apart. The pressure compensating emitters shall be molded from
virgin polyethylene resin with a silicone rubber diaphragm. The pressure
compensating emitters shall have nominal discharge rates of 0.53 gallons
per hour. The emitters shall be impregnated with Treflan® to inhibit
root intrusion for a minimum period of fifteen years and shall be
guaranteed by the manufacturer to inhibit root intrusion for this period.
0.53 gph WASTEFLOW PC pressure compensating dripline shall be Geoflow model
number WFPC16-2-24 (or WFPC16-2-18 or WFPC16-2-12)
