the label says .5 gph per emitter and shows one hole with a drop of water. There are 2 holes every 6 inches. How many GPH per 6 inches?

Answer: 
This must be an average or a measurement taken near the water source. Simple physics tells you that the longer the distribution tube the more emitters you will be using. That implies there will be a drop in pressure. I have not found that to be a problem in uses of < ~12 ft. I originally tried a long loop of about 50 ft. but there was not enough water emitted at the outside of the loop (the 25 ft. Read More
This must be an average or a measurement taken near the water source. Simple physics tells you that the longer the distribution tube the more emitters you will be using. That implies there will be a drop in pressure. I have not found that to be a problem in uses of < ~12 ft. I originally tried a long loop of about 50 ft. but there was not enough water emitted at the outside of the loop (the 25 ft. region) to suit me. I changed to smaller loops or single lengths with an end plug and I have been pleased with the result. There is little loss of pressure at smaller lengths. Read Less

Answer: 
This tubing has 1 emitter every 6 inches. Each emitter releases .5GPH. Each emitter has 2 holes that are located on opposite sides of the tubing making it impossible to photograph both holes/ports simultaneously.

Answer: 
The Toro Blue Stripe Drip Tubing has one emitter per six inches, so the water supplied is 1/2 gallon per six inches.

can I use entire 100 ft. length without cutting it into smaller sections?

I want to hook-up at both of its ends 1/4 in. drip line, making it a loop, to main water feed line. Feeding water into the 1/4 in. from both ends can this diameter tube carry enough water to supply all its emitters?

Effectively by hooking-up both ends of the 100 ft. line to the same water source this means water only needs to travel 50 ft. from each of the drip line's connection.

Answer: 
I have found that this works well in smaller loops. I have hooked several shorter loops to the larger .5in supply hose. When I hooked a long loop to the .5in, there was a drop in pressure at the outer end of the loop.

Are the emitters pressure compensated (PC)? What is the minimum working pressure?

Answer: 
I have found that longer distances (more than 10-12 ft.) from the water source do lose some pressure and thus emit less. You must use a pressure compensator when attaching to house water faucet; a house supply has too much pressure. That is the only experience I have. My system is not attached to a lawn watering system.

Answer: 
¼” inline emitter tubing is not pressure compensating because the length of run is limited.
Length of runs are: 19 ‘ max for 6” spacing and 33’ max for 12” spacing using 0.53 gph inline emitters.
The minimum working pressure is 15 psi.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Blue-Stripe Drip Tubing selected for large garden We installed Blue Stripe 1/4-inch drip tubing in our large community vegetable garden. Some of the rows are over 20 feet long, and a single drip tubing runs the whole length. The tubing has held up well over a 3-year period with very little replacement needed. We harvest over 400 pounds of produce for charity each year from this garden, so having an efficient, low-maintenance irrigation system is a high priority. The emitters almost never clog, even with the hard water in Chandler, Arizona. The blue stripe helps make the line more visible during harvest time when clippers might be in close proximity. I would recommend this product. October 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far, so good Like many others, I wanted to replace 1/4" soaker hose that clogs and only lasts a month or two. After reading a number of positive reviews, I purchased two roles of Blue Stripe for my raised-bed veggie garden. The tubing is versatile and easy to work with, although I did notice that some of the emitters don't flow as fast as others. Not a significant problem, as it seems everything is getting watered consistently. If this lasts more than one season, I will be very happy. Already it is a far better option than soaker hose.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent dripper but I discovered a limit in application Backround of user. I am not a contractor but a retired person who helps others to water their garden with a timer instead of watering with a hose. When you use any drip line emitter, you must reduce bib water pressure to 25 PSI, include a vacuum breaker and a filter. Then you transition from a 1/2" distribution line to the 1/4" blue line emitter which drips 1/2 gallon per emitter, every 6", per hour. Be aware that any line has some resistance to flowing water and that resistance reduces the net water pressure slightly. HOWEVER, IF YOU ARE LAYING THIS DRIPPER LINE IN A FLOWER GARDEN AND CURVING IT NEXT A PLANT TO WATER ITS ROOTS AND THEN TURN IT TO GO TO THE NEXT PLANT TO WATER, YOU ARE ADDING SIGNIFICANT RESISTANCE TO WATER FLOW. When you are not dripping, you can use a 1/4" distribution line to move the water from point A to point B. In one recent installation, the 1/4" dripping had stopped. I decided the total resistance to the flow, the distribution line and the dripper line was too much. I replaced all the 1/4" distribution with 1/2" Blue Line distribution and it corrected my problem. In closing, the 1/4" Toro Blue Line emitter is an excellent product. Test the effective length by inserting a hose end plug in one end and connect the emitter to a water source and see right away if the net water pressure is sufficient to meet your objective of watering the intended plants. I am an active 82 year old gardener. June 14, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by quality drip line good quality but not available locally and should be available locally August 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Consistent performance Prefer this over laser drilled because it is more consistent at each dripper, is spaced at 6 inches rather than 12, and has been very durable and reliable for me, including some that has been in service for over 12 years. June 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice product I put these around trees and scrubs and they are great. March 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent drip line I've been using this drip line (with 1/2 gal per hr emitters per every 6 inches) in my garden for over 2 years and have yet to have a plugged emitter or a blown-off line. I've tried other brands with very limited success, but Toro Blue Strip products are the superior product. In addition to being strong, they also hold up better than others under the heat and intense UV rays of the Arizona desert sun. I use them in conjunction with the Blue Strip 1/2" line and in most cases, I put a shut-off valve on each 1/4" line. This allows me to not water a given smaller area (between seasonal crops) without drying up growing perennial plants on the same line. Again, I've tried other brands, but keep coming back to Toro. It is a bit more up-front investment, but you save money (and work!) in the long run. April 19, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product Product was received as scheduled and works well. The length was actually greater than 100 feet. July 22, 2014
