Netafim USA’s Space-It™ Dripline is a drip system for watering potted plants. It’s a thinwall dripline with pre-spaced drippers designed to be placed directly over the top of pots with the location of each dripper visibly marked on the tubing. Positioning of the pots (plants) is quick and easy - just place the pot under the mark on the dripline - saving up to 20% in installation labor costs.
The location of each dripper in the dripline is visibly marked. This mark contrasts with the black color of the dripline for easy visibility.
Save Time During and After Installation
Workers don’t have to stoop or feel to find the dripper’s position in the tubing. The visible mark allows them to quickly and easily identify where each plant should be positioned. This also saves time after installation - there is no need to recheck the dripper’s position to make sure the water is dripping into the pot. Growers estimate that the time required to space out a potted crop can be reduced by 20% or more.
Reduces Crop Loss
Typically with unmarked tubing, some pots are out of position and do not get watered until positioning is corrected. Plant wilting is the usual indicator that a pot is out of position. With Space-It Dripline, you can simply look down a zone to see that the pots are properly positioned without having to wait for plant stress to tell you.
Netafim manufactures more drippers than anyone in the world. There is a reason growers trust their crops to Netafim.
Consistent Dripper Performance
Netafim pioneered the use of molded drippers and each one is manufactured to the industry’s highest standards. Netafim drippers are injection molded and welded into a wall of seamless tubing. The dripper flow path is not subject to distortion during installation and the clear outlet hole allows water to exit right at the outlet. Ordinary thinwall driplines (tapes) form their drippers by pressing a pattern into a sheet of plastic or into the wall of the tubing. This type of tubing gets stretched during installation altering the dripper’s flow path and since there is no clear exit, the water drips from the seam or fold.
Netafim USA offers a selection of dripper spacing options to fit your needs. Space-It™ Dripline’s standard dripper spacings include 12”, 14”, 16”, 18”, 20” and 24”.
Choose Your Dripper Spacing
Rather than choosing a pot spacing to match the spacing of the drippers, Netafim Space-It Dripline lets you choose a dripper spacing that matches your needs for pot spacing. Drip lines (tapes) offered by other manufacturers are for Agricultural applications and often only come in 4” dripper spacing increments. If you wanted 14” pot spacing, but were limited to 16” by the tape you were using, you would have wasted 30% of your growing area. Space-It Dripline is available with the most common dripper spacings for potted plants - dripper spacings to fit your needs.
No need to look anywhere else - Netafim has all the components needed for a Space-It Dripline system.

Space-It Dripline is the simplest way to achieve a good, long term quality pot watering system. The general layout of the Space-It Dripline is very simple:
There are several connection options available for Space-It Driplines. A few of the most common connection options are illustrated in the following layouts. Check with an authorized Netafim USA dealer for other installation configurations
Several materials can be used for the supply header, Polyethylene (PE) pipe and PVC pipe, are just two of the most common. A light tension is placed on the Space-It Dripline, so the supply header must be secured in place. It can be strapped to a solid fixture or sometimes a few rods of rebar driven into the ground are sufficient. The Supply Header should be raised to the level of the pot so the Space-It Dripline doesn’t pinch at the edge of the pot.
A 3/4” polyethylene pipe is used as the supply header for the Space-It Dripline system in Figure 1 (from PDF.
PVC pipe is used as the supply header for the Space-It Dripline system in Figure 2 (From PDF.
