Xeri-Bug™ Emitters with Check Valve

Point-Source Water Savings for Any Terrain

Xeri-Bug™ with Check Valve (XBCV) is a pressure-compensating emitter that’s the ideal choice for irrigation applications that want to conserve water. XBCV prevents drainage by holding back 10 feet (3 m) of water — the highest in the industry. It’s a smart solution for slopes, elevated zones, potted plants and more.

Available in self-piercing and 10-32 threaded models with flow rates of 0.5 gph (1.9 lph), 1.0 gph (3.8 lph) and 2.0 gph (7.6 lph), it's an all-in-one emitter that can meet the needs of any jobsite.


  • Self-piercing inlet barbs, making them the easy to install using the Xeriman™ tool
  • Widest selection of pressure-compensating emitters, with 3 flow rates and 2 inlet options
  • Most compact and unobtrusive emitters
  • Flow-rates of 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0 gph (1.89, 3.79 and 7.57 l/h)
    • Pressure-compensating design delivers uniform flow throughout a wide pressure range (15 to 50 psi; 1.0 to 3.5 bar)
  • Available with 2 different inlets:
    • Self-piercing barb for quick, one-step insertion into 1⁄2" or 3⁄4" drip tubing
    • 10-32 threaded inlet that easily threads into a PolyFlex Riser, 1032 Thread adapter, or 1800 Xeri-Bubbler Adapter
  • Outlet barb securely retains 1⁄4" Distribution Tubing (XQ)
  • Design makes installation and maintenance easy
    • Self-flushing action minimizes clogging
    • Robust design made from highly inert materials that are resistant to chemicals
    • Durable plastic construction is UV-resistant
  • Color-coded to identify flow rate
