Bull Moose Tube has leveraged recent breakthroughs in alloy technology to create HydroLogic TM . This new sprinkler-pipe product is made from carbon steel, but possesses a surface with corrosion resistance that is far superior to galvanized steel and traditional carbon steel. Unlike surface coatings, which can wear off with use over time, the surface material of HydroLogic is a metallurgically-bonded diffusion alloy on the surface of the tube that can’t be removed or damaged.
The result is a sprinkler pipe with a radically lower coefficient of friction—which can often enable smaller diameter pipes to perform like larger pipes.
