Less water. More savings. Better results The population explosion and subsequent need for appropriate sanitary conditions has created a two-fold challenge in the area of fresh water resources. Metzer leads the industry in Subsurface Drip Irrigation (SDI) applications and Drip Irrigation Wastewater Solutions. By turning wastewater from a liability into a valuable resource, we help solve both the global water consumption and the wastewater problem.
The SDI Advantage
- Reduced water use leading to large savings
- Increased fertilizer efficiency
- Better root development
- Fewer weeds
- Lower salinity due to evaporation on soil surface
- Less Maintenance in handling wear and damage
- Decreased moisture-generated plant diseases
- No vandalism or theft
Next-gen solutions for an age-old problem The successful implementation of subsurface drip irrigation is largely dependent on three key variables: The correct adaptation of the system’s design, its components, and its operation within varying sub-soil environments. The most recognized threat to subsurface driplines is root intrusion.
In cooperation with Geoflow Inc., Metzer has pioneered ROOTGUARD® technology and more recently, the patented Nano-ROOTGUARD®, bio-degradable materials and drip products.
Technology that works with nature ROOTGUARD® technology releases a herbicide through both the pipe walls and emitter exit hole that is entirely independent of water flow. This is particularly important as root intrusion occurs at watering intervals. The released herbicide is then absorbed into the surrounding soil at very low concentrations. Additional herbicide is only released once the previous batch has naturally degraded. Only the very tip of the rootlet makes contact with the herbicide, avoiding growth into the dripper. As a result, the plant has plenty of roots free to absorb moisture and nutrients and stays away from the irrigation pipe, thus developing… just as nature intended.
From liability to resource Metzer offers two unique driplines with incorporated anti-bacterial treatment: WasteflowTM and Cleanline. Waste source, treatment level and local regulations determine which product and implementation method are the most suitable. Metzer’ advanced biofilm resistant pipes and irrigation, municipal and plumbing driplines provide the ideal solution for every need.
The Wastewater Advantage
- Passive: Does not attack helpful bacteria, prevents development of new resistant strains
- Non-photo-reactive: Operates in complete darkness
- Lingers: Does not migrate from the pipe wall to the water flow (complies with ISO standards), resists water flow abrasion
- Withstands high extrusion temperatures: Also endures electro-fusion
- Durable: Remains active throughout pipe’s lifespan (several years)
First-class materials. Multiple designs. Next-gen features Metzer offers an unparalleled range of emitters ranging from regular to pressure-compensated, cylindrical to flat and single-year use models to fixed-systems designed to perform perfectly for 15 years, and more. When it comes to quality – we make no compromises. Specializing in high-end pressure compensated emitters designed to deliver continuous high performance over long periods of time under the even the most challenging of conditions such as solid particle/high biological water content, Metzer’ emitters offer unique features:
- The biggest filtration area in the market
- Dual inlet configuration: Ensures water intake
- Built-in self-flushing action at the start and end of each irrigation cycle
- Unique, proprietary compensation mechanism: No reduction of water path inside the emitter
- Raised inlets in flat emitters
