It should be understood that the specific embodiments described herein are merely illustrative of the present disclosure and are not intended to limit the disclosure.

[0018] As shown in FIG. 1, an embodiment of the present disclosure provides a drip hose 100 comprising a hose body 1, a hollow drip head inner plug 2 and a cover 3.

[0019] In particular, referring to FIG.s 2 to 7, a sealing post 11 is fixed in the opening of the hose body 1, and a sealing ring 21 is fixed in the interior of the drip head inner plug 2. The drip head inner plug 2 is capped in the opening of the hose body 1, and the outer wall (not labeled) of the drip head inner plug 2 and the inner wall (not labeled) of the opening of the hose body 1 are interference-fitted to form a sealed structure. In one embodiment of the present disclosure, the inner wall of the opening portion of the hose body 1 is provided with a buckling position groove 12, and the outer wall of the drip head inner plug 2 is provided with a buckling position protrusion 22, the buckling position protrusion 22 is engaged with the buckling position groove 12 to fix the tightening of the drip head inner plug, and the firmness of the connection between the hose body 1 and the drip head inner plug 2 is enhanced.

[0020] The sealing post 11 correspondingly seals and blocks the sealing ring 21, and the sealing post 11, the sealing ring 21 and the inner hollow cavity of the drip head inner plug 2 jointly form a storage space 23. A small liquid outlet aperture 211 is arranged on the sealing ring 21, a small liquid outlet hole 24 is arranged on the head of the drip head inner plug 2, and the small liquid outlet aperture 211 is in communication with both the storage space 23 and the opening of the hose body 1, the small liquid outlet hole 24 is in communication with the storage space 23, and the size of the small liquid outlet hole 24 is larger than the size of the small liquid outlet aperture 211. Referring to Fig. 3 and Fig. 7, in the embodiments of the present disclosure, the small liquid outlet aperture 211 is a strip groove, and the strip groove 211 is disposed on the inner wall of the sealing ring 21, and together with the outer wall of the sealing post 11 forms a passage for the content to pass through.

[0024] Referring to FIG. 6, the head of the drip head inner plug 2 is provided with an applicator head 25. After the content is extruded, the content can be directly applied by the applicator head 25 to facilitate consumer use. In addition, in the above embodiment, the drip head inner plug 2 is integrally formed, but is not limited to the specific structural form of the drip head inner plug 2.

[0025] Referring to Fig. 1 and Fig. 8, the cover 3 is covered on the drip head inner plug 2 and threadedly connected to the hose body 1 to protect the drip head inner plug 2 and prevent dust from entering the drip head inner plug 2. On the other hand, the cover 3 is provided with a plug 31 at a position corresponding to the small liquid outlet hole 24, and the plug 31 is arranged at the small liquid outlet hole 24 to function as a seal.

[0026] In summary, the drip hose 100 provided by the embodiments of the present disclosure does not have too fast flow rate, there is a buffering process for liquid outflow, and the liquid slowly flows out from the small liquid outlet hole 24 drop by drop, which is convenient for consumers to use, and does not cause waste of content.

[0027] The above is only the preferred embodiment of the present disclosure, and is not intended to limit the present disclosure. Any modifications, equivalent substitutions and improvements made within the spirit and principle of the present disclosure should be included in the protection scope of the present disclosure.
