XFS-CV Dripline with Heavy Duty Check Valve

(Currently available in California only)

Look For CopperRain Bird® XFS-CV Dripline with an improved 4.3 psi check valve delivers 10 feet of hold-back – the highest in the industry. With pure copper chips in every emitter to protect against emitter root intrusion, XFS-CV dripline is an all-in-one dripline suitable for any application – on-surface, sub-surface, sloped or level-grade. When used in applications where elevation changes exist, the patent-pending check valve keeps the dripline charged with water, delivering better irrigation uniformity while preventing over-watering and puddling at the low-point in the zone.

It accepts Rain Bird XF Dripline Barbed Insert Fittings, RB 600 Series Twist Lock Fittings, and other 17 mm barbed insert fittings. A proprietary tubing material makes the XFS Sub-Surface Dripline with Copper Shield the most flexible tubing in the industry, and the easiest sub-surface dripline to design with and install.

The Copper-Color Outside Ensures the Copper Shield™ is Inside




  • 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
  • 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
  • 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

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
