Best dripperline for hard water?

Hi. I moved into a house that has an irrigation system for the garden that uses 1/2" dripperline with emitters every 12". The previous owner said that the system is only a couple of years old. I do know that the house water is very hard and has a high iron content. I checked the existing irrigation line and there appears to be very little to no water coming out of the emitters when the zone is open. I know the zone is opening due to a split in one of the pipes causing a large geyser. I suspect that the pipes are clogged from either the water or the iron. My question: If I replace the dripperline is there a type/brand that can handle hard and rusty water?
