Point-Source Low-Flow Emitters for Watering the Root Zones of  Plants, Trees, and Container Plants

Ideal for watering the root zones of plants, trees, and container plants. Xeri-Bugs emit water at rates of 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 gallons-per-hour (GPH) which allows soils to absorb water more completely into the root zones of plants.

Xeri-Bugs are an ideal choice for those wishing to to conserve water or eliminate excessive run-off.

The only emitters with self-piercing barbs, making them the easiest to install using the Xeriman™ tool.

Widest selection of pressure-compensating emitters, with 3 flow rates and 3 inlet options. Most compact and unobtrusive emitters.


Xeri-Bugs Flow-rates of 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 gph (1.89, 3.79 and 7.57 l/h).

  • Available with 3 different inlets (1.0 and 2.0 models):
    • Self-piercing barb for quick, one-step insertion into 1⁄2″ or 3⁄4″  drip tubing.
