  • Robust, flexible header installs in minutes instead of hours, eliminates the need to cut and assemble dripline headers onsite with PVC, fittings, adapters, tape and glue.

    AZUSA, CA (September 30, 2015) – Rain Bird has introduced a significant innovation to speed the installation of drip irrigation systems – new Rain Bird® QF Dripline Header.  QF Header saves a significant amount of time and money and reduces hassles by eliminating the need to build a PVC header, allowing much faster and more precise installations of both on-surface and sub-surface dripline grids.  QF Dripline Header’s patent-pending design features robust pre-installed fittings (compatible with any manufacturer’s 16-17mm dripline) that rotate 360⁰ and incorporate a protective ring to prevent barb damage and ensure a proper seal.  Available in 100’ self-dispensing coils of ¾” or 1” tubing and with fitting spacing of either 12” or 18”, the flexibility of the QF Header makes it ideal for smaller planter beds and landscape designs that include sharp curves. The precise spacing of the fittings ensures that the dripline grid is uniform which is critical to efficient watering.

    “Compared to a site-built header constructed of PVC pipe, fittings, tape and glue, the time savings are significant,” said Chuck Kunze, Rain Bird product manager. “Based on time-motion studies of accomplished irrigation industry workers, each 100 foot coil of QF Dripline Header represents 3 ½ hours of labor savings.  Simply roll out and make one cut to length – no more measuring, gluing or taping required.”

    The flexibility of the QF Header makes it easy to roll into place and stake down – even with curved landscape features. QF Header can be used as either a supply or exhaust header and connects to the zone using standard ¾” and 1” compression fittings, lock fittings and insert fittings with clamps.

  • While some commercial and industrial sites want irrigation controllers with all the bells and whistles, others need a simpler option with basic features. Rain Bird has answered that need by introducing the latest controller in its popular ESP-LX Series—the new ESP-LX Basic. 

    “Our market research found that many contractors and maintenance professionals were looking for an easier-to-use controller,” said Sean Azad, product manager for Rain Bird’s commercial division. “The ESP-LX Basic is ideal for those individuals. It’s a simple, entry-level controller that provides only the water management features and modular options that commercial sites use most.”

    The ESP-LX Basic is also an excellent choice for contractors or maintenance crews with employees who speak English and Spanish. Patent-pending technology makes it possible to switch the controller’s language from English to Spanish with the simple turn of a dial.  Rain Bird is the first manufacturer of electronic or irrigation equipment to integrate this type of innovative technology.

    A spacious, locking plastic case and quick-connect terminals make the ESP-LX Basic fast and easy to install. The ESP-LX Basic’s base model can control 12 stations and is expandable up to 48 stations by adding hot-swappable 4-, 8- and 12-station modules. An external alarm light and on-screen messaging alert users of conditions that could potentially disrupt controller operation. The controller integrates Rain Bird’s proven “Extra Simple Programming” interface, an industry standard since the early 1990s. Its large LCD display features softkey text labels to indicate button functions. 

    While the ESP-LX Basic may be simple to operate, it still includes must-have features that help commercial sites efficiently manage irrigation and consume less water. Users can create four individual watering programs with eight available start times per program. A SimulStations™ option allows two stations to operate at the same time, helping reduce watering windows. The Cycle+Soak™ divides total irrigation time into shorter cycles, preventing run-off and allowing water to soak into plant and turf root zones. Seasonal Adjust from 0 to 300 percent makes it easy to quickly modify irrigation schedules when temperatures and precipitation amounts change throughout the year.  The ESP-LX Basic can also be outfitted with a weather sensor. After installation, weather sensors can be programmed by station to prevent or pause watering as needed in different areas of the landscape. 

    “We understand that one size doesn’t necessarily fit all when it comes to commercial irrigation control,” Azad said. “By adding the ESP-LX Basic to our ESP-LX Series of commercial controllers, we can now provide contractors and maintenance professionals with a wider range of choices to better match their unique needs.”
