What are the different types of drippers? There are three types of drippers, On-line or end of line, in-line and flag. On-line drippers have a singular flow pattern and are identified by a barb on the color portion of the dripper. On-line drippers are pressure compensating for consistent flow rates and pre-set to specific gallons per hour referred to as GPH. On-line drippers have pre-set flow rates and are color coded red for half gallon per hour, black one gallon per hour and green two gallon per hour. In-line drippers are perfect for vegetable gardens because they are barbed on both sides of the dripper allowing for placement of the drippers in-line at the base of your evenly spaced vegetables. In line drippers are available in two pre-set flow rates and are color coded red for half gallon per hour and black for one gallon per hour. Flag drippers are unique in that they feature a “take apart” design, used for cleaning the dripper. However, they are NOT adjustable and the flag portion of the dripper does not act as an on/off function. Its simply a cleanable dripper. Flag drippers are color coded black for one gallon per hour, green for two gallons per hour and yellow for four gallons per hour.
