Rain Bird clips water waste

Clip Plugs from Rain Bird help farmers save money by closing emitter outlets on driplines.  

By Andrew Joseph,

Rain Bird Corporation has developed Clip Plugs, a simple way to aid farmers save water by closing emitter outlets when using heavy-wall driplines.

Clip Plug uses a ratchet-closing device to prevent leaks with its tight fit.

Easily adaptable to any dripline of 16 to 20mm in diameter, the Clip Plug from Rain Bird is perfect for growers needing to temporarily—or permanently—shut off the flow from unneeded emitters.

Rain Bird was founded in 1933, providing a wide range of irrigation products and services. Headquartered in Azusa, California, its products are used in over 130 countries around the world from golf courses, sports arenas, commercial developments and homes, and of course, farms of all types and sizes.

Its 1935 horizontal action impact drive sprinkler helped revolutionize the food production industry, ushering in a new era in irrigation. The sprinkler was designated a historic landmark in 1990 by the American Society of Agricultural Engineers.
