Answer: 
No. It will not last. The sun will dry it out and cause it to crack. It gets hard when it gets cold and helps it crack easier under pressure. I don't believe it is made for that.

Answer: 
Blue Stripe Drip tubing is designed for use with drip irrigation systems within specific flow and pressure ratings. This product has not been tested for use in any other application and is therefore not recommended for use with solar heat collection systems or any other related application.

Answer: 
Hi Bob.
While this tubing is rated for outdoor and greenhouse use, the pool chemicals will cause it to fail prematurely. I would suggest using a commercial grade tubing available from your local landscape supply, or plumbing supply house.

Answer: 
NO, I don't drain should not be any water in it as it has holes for drip fittings so should drain out, if not tube should not be full of water so will have room to let ice expand.

Answer: 
When it gets cold turn off the water that goes to the control valve and don't use it for awhile so it will drain out the pressure through the emitters/drippers. If it is above ground, it will freeze easier so it could crack. It cracks often, in my experience from the water pressure, even when less than 25 PSI.

Answer: 
Yes, ice would be destructive. Water expands when it becomes ice. The tubing and connectors, effective at water transportation, may not be resist expanding water. Also, other tubing products, ie water hose, become brittle in the winter when water/ice is present. The same would likely occur with the TORO product.

Answer: 
No. You poke the holes where you want to run a 1/4" line out where you need it. The tool comes with connectors that plug into the holes you poke in it. You can put as many as you want, but not closer than 6" in my opinion to insure strength. This tubing cracks easily when under pressure when it gets cold.

The holes are not predrilled. An inexpensive puncture tool is available for purchase. It is easy to use and make a perfect puncture hole to add smaller tubing or emitters.

Answer: 
No, this product does not have any holes pre-drilled. Use a hole punch (Toro Model 53679) to make holes to attach either emitters directly onto the tubing or to attach ¼" drip tubing using ¼" fittings. Toro does offer drip tubing with pre-installed 1 GPH emitters spaced 18 inches apart (Toro Model 53618.)

Answer: 
Yes, but good luck. It does not want to uncoil without kinking. If you need such a long length to cover a large area, consider using PVC pipe and T-joints and running out shorter lengths of tubing to water where you want it. You will not have to repair cracks that develop that will waste water, and if you leave this above the ground in the sun, it will not lasts long. Not reliable in long lengths.

It depends on multiple factors: flat or sloped terrain, number and type of emitters, water flow rate and pressure. Toro has irrigation design services for drip and sprinkler irrigation systems.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice product It worked for its intended purpose. You do have to be very careful that you don't kink it during a bend. If it kinks it is hard to get it not to kink in that same spot. May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product. Fast delivery. Product arrived safely and as described. Blue line is sturdier and more UV resistant than other hose we've tried. April 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great, durable product at a great price I have installed well over 3,000' of this tubing and it has performed flawlessly. Very dependable and the Home Depot price is second to none. January 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Stuff, best so far When you unroll it, unroll it. Not off the side. Unroll and it lays flat. Good product. No problems. Only tubing I could find that actually states the amount of carbon black incorporated for solar protection. May 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exceeds expectations I wanted a product that would deliver water to my plants without waste. I decided that the Toro system would be best. I purchased this larger roll of tubing so that I would have plenty as my gardening skills expanded. The tube is lightweight and seems be durable. It covers easily with mulch. Adding tubing with the connectors is very easy. This system has enabled me to be busy with work and then come home to vibrant, healthy plants. September 13, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Extra thick works well. The product itself was a good deal and what I can use it works very well. Make sure you check the rolls for holes. I ordered 5 rolls and one of the rolls had holes in the outer layer. I didn't realize it till I cut it and hooked it up. I over ordered, so it was no big deal. I'm using it for a solar heater for my pool. It is definitely worth the price for the over all quality. September 7, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by If you want to repair it often don't buy this tubing. I bought the 500' roll to go all around my backyard from the front side yard valves I installed. It was a huge problem to unroll because the tubing remembers how it was rolled up and will not straighten out. It will uncoil but it wants to kink when you straighten it out. This was in the summer when it was hot and warmed up. I installed a pressure reducer (25 psi) and buried the tubing 2-3" below the surface. It has sprung leaks many times because the tubing cracks, maybe from the places where it kinked when unrolling it. It is not dependable. You have to cut out pieces and buy the connectors to repair the areas where it cracks. I am tired of fixing it and will probably replace it with PVC pipe and only use it in short pieces, if at all, from the PVC pipe. It is spec'd at 160 PSI, but don't believe it. Don't trust this tubing. It has not frozen here in Phoenix either and have turned off the water when it gets near freezing. It deserves 0 stars! February 8, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by works ok I bought this to use with the solar heater for the pool. It works good, but getting it set up was a pain. The tubing was impossible to untangle-after an hour and a half, I cut it to untangle it. It did kink, more than once, in several spots, and is not-so-durable when pulled around even a dull corner; it tore in a couple of spots. It is not as flexible as I had hoped. June 26, 2010
