Extended Tube & Gel Pac (ETG)

Waters up to 120 days

Extended moisture delivery

Decreased labor mobilization

Reusable, recyclable

The DRiWATER Extended Tube (ETG) allows deeper water release for larger plants. The ETG is often used with the Tube & Gel Pac (TG) or PT Delivery System (PT) to provide watering of upper and lower roots for large plant material. It is also used in remote areas where watering is needed for longer periods for plant establishment. The ETG hold two 3” Gel Pacs (GP) for extended watering. With its design for deep watering, basic food-based ingredients, and ease-of- use, DriWater has become the experts choice for watering maintenance.


The DRiWATER Extended Tube & Gel Pac is ideal for:

  • Large Plants
  • Remote Plantings
  • City Trees
  • Longer Watering Needs
  • Large Pots
  • Palm Trees

How to Use

Dig a planting hole to proper depth for plant.

Water the hole thoroughly. For easy tube filing, remove plastic from Gel Pacs and wet before putting into tubes.

Place plant in hole and install Gel as shown. The bottom of the Tube should be directly against the root mass. When using multiple Tubes, place at equal distance around root mass.

Backfill with soil being careful not to press the DRiWATER out of tube. The top of the cap will be above the soil level. Water again.


DriWater is a 100% natural, non toxic product used for watering plants. It was invented by a well known food chemist who recognized the potential of cellulose gum he was using to thicken peanut butter. He tested and applied his theory that water could be suspended as a gel and released over time as naturally occurring microbes in the soil fed on the cellulose and released the suspended water into the soil.

The patented DRiWATER product is made from 98% purified water and 2% food grade ingredients. The food grade ingredients bind the water into a solid gel that provides consistent subsurface irrigation to plants for up to three months. DRiWATER is not an absorbent polymer nor a wetting agent-DRiWATER is natural and environmentally safe.

Providing continual moisture delivery without the cost and need of installing remote drip systems that have a tendency to malfunction in remote environments due to pests, landslides, and blockages. Our customers have reported increased survival rates of transplants using DriWater in comparison to drip alone.

DriWater is also useful in establishing native plant material where permanent irrigation is not required, and for new plant material in existing landscape areas.
