Xeri-Bug 0.5 GPH with a Check Valve, Barbed Inlet
Xeri-Bug™ with Check Valve (XBCV) is a pressure-compensating emitter that’s the ideal choice for irrigation applications that want to conserve water. XBCV prevents drainage by holding back 10 feet (3 m) of water — the highest in the industry. It’s a smart solution for slopes, elevated zones, potted plants and more.
Efficient Water Usage
- With 10 feet (3 m) of hold-back power, XBCV eliminates low-point drainage and provides uniform irrigation throughout the zone.
- Strong check-valve protection helps conserve water by eliminating low-point drainage and flooding.
- In a zone that has a 10-foot (3 m) elevation change, only one zone is needed for the XBCV. Fewer zones allow you to save money on valves and time on installation.
Holds Prime in the Line
- Designed to hold prime in the line, these emitters immediately begin irrigation and reduce cycle times.
- By holding prime when the system is turned off, XBCV prevents particles from clogging the emitter—a problem when a system drains and siphons soiled water.
- Holding prime in the line reduces calcium build-up and extends the life of the emitter.
- With its comprehensive capabilities, the XBCV can be taken to any jobsite. It’s the only emitter you need to stock, carry and install, simplifying point-source drip jobs.
- A pressure-compensating design offers a consistent flow from 15 to 50 psi (1.0 to 3.5 bar).
- XBCV delivers the same amount of water from the first emitter in the line to the last.
- A self-flushing action cleans the emitters every time the system turns on and off, reducing maintenance and extending the life of the emitter.
Self-piercing models feature barbs that eliminate the need for a hole-punching tool, making installation easier.
- With a diameter less than a dime, the emitter is unobtrusive and easily hidden
