drippers for baskets

Eugene, OR

I am redoing my drip system for all my hanging baskets. I am trying to find the metal drippers like I see in all the nurseries, but can only find the plastic ones. Any ideas?? Thank you for any help.

Why do you want metal ones?

I have to change the plastic ones all the time. I thought the others might last better.

Maybe they are clogging. Do you have a filter?

I never saw metal emitters, but Dripworks has a cheap one that's easy to clean:
>> Take Apart drip emitters
>> The DTA1, DTA2 and DTA4 Take Apart drip emitters can be pulled apart for easy cleaning.

They also have a more expensive one that sounds c lever, and they call it "non-plugging"

>> Non-Plugging Emitter
>> the Non-Stop Emitter will pass particles that would plug almost any drip emitter.
>> A minimum of 15 PSI is required

>> Inside the emitter are 2 diaphragms with 5 small openings.
>> When particles block the diaphragm openings, pressure develops and stretches the opening.
>> The particle is forced through the opening, which then returns to its normal size.
