XFS-CV Dripline

With Copper Shield™ Technology and Heavy-Duty Check Valve

Rain Bird® XFS-CV Dripline with a heavy-duty 4.3 psi check valve for on-surface and sub-surface applications adds a valuable member to the Rain Bird XF Series of Dripline. The XFS-CV is the most effective dripline in the industry and is ideal for areas where no other dripline will work. When used in applications where elevation changes exist, the patent-pending check valve keeps the dripline charged, holding 10 feet of hold back - the highest holdback in the industry. Rain Bird's XFS-CV offers better uniformity and helps to prevent over-watering at the low-point in the zone, avoiding puddling and water draining from the dripline. With a pure copper chip inside every emitter, XFS-CV Dripline also offers the industry's most effective root intrusion protection.

It accepts Rain Bird Easy Fit Compression Fittings, XF Dripline Barbed Insert Fittings and other 17 mm barbed insert fittings.

LEED Certification Logo
This product qualify for LEED credit 4.2 because it contains at least 20% polyethylene recycled material


Rain Bird’s patent-pending 4.3 psi check valve technology keeps the dripline charged with water at all times, increasing uniformity of watering, and conserves water by eliminating the need to recharge the line at the beginning of each watering cycle
XFS-CV Sub-Surface Dripline emitters are protected from root intrusion by Rain Bird’s patent-pending Copper Shield™ Technology resulting in a system that does not require maintenance or replacement of chemicals to prevent root intrusion
Rain Bird’s low-profile emitter design reduces in-line pressure loss, allowing longer lateral runs, simplifying design and reducing installation time
Variety of standard emitter flow rates, emitter spacing and coil lengths provide design flexibility for sub-surface and on-surface areas with or without elevation changes
Through the use of a proprietary tubing material, the XFS-CV Dripline with heavy-duty check valve is the most flexible dripline tubing in the industry, making it the easiest dripline to design with and install
Made with Recycled Content
All Rain Bird XF Dripline (XFD, XFS, XFCV, XFS-CV) qualify for LEED credit 4.2 because they contain at least 20% Polyethylene post consumer recycled material by cost. These come in an assortment of coil sizes, flow rates and emitter spacing
The pressure-compensating emitter design provides a consistent flow over the entire lateral length ensuring higher uniformity for increased reliability in the pressure range of 20 to 60 psi
Dual-layered tubing (copper over black) provides unmatched resistance to chemicals, algae growth and UV damage
Grit Tolerant
Rain Bird’s proprietary emitter design resists clogging by use of an extra wide flow path combined with a self-flushing action
