Pressure-Compensating Threaded Bubblers

Point-Source Medium-Flow Emitters for Watering Larger Shrubs and Trees

Rain Bird’s Pressure Compensating Bubblers are ideal for a variety of applications including shrub plantings, trees, containers, annual color, and flower beds.

Rain Bird’s new pressure compensating bubblers are designed for a rugged environment. Offered in 5 gph, 7 gph, and 10 gph models, the bubbler style outlet and medium-flow options provide more flexibility for commercial applications. The ½” FPT threaded inlet makes these devices ideal for installations using a PVC pipe and schedule 80 risers.


Most compact and unobtrusive emitters
Flow rates are 5.0 GPH, 7.0 GPH and 10.0 GPH
Pressure compensating design delivers uniform flow throughout a wide pressure range (15-50 psi). Ideal for a variety of applications including shrubs, trees, containers and large pots
Robust design – UV-resistant durable plastic construction with ½” FPT threads screws onto PVC pipe or schedule 80 risers
Easy to Identify – Color-coded caps make identifying the flow rate easy. Light Brown = 5gph, Violet = 7gph and Green = 10gph


Operating Range
Flow: 5 to 24 gph (18.93 to 90.84 l/h)
Pressure: 10 to 50 psi (0.7 to 3.5 bar)
Required filtration: 100 mesh (150 micron)
