I have it coiled around some larger plants but it doesn't lie flat to the ground. Are there pins or something that could capture the hose and go into the ground to be used to keep in in place?

Answer: 
A great way to keep it in place is to bend little "U" shapes using glavi wire and then press them into the soil like staples, pinning the hose in place. The length of the legs on the U depends on your soil type.
I hope this helps

But what I do is buy a roll of 16-gauge galvanized wire, cut pieces about 6" long, and bend them into a U-shape. Extremely cheap, you can cut them any size you like, and they last for years.

Answer: 
Yes and no: hot water will not damage the hose, but the fittings will not work. For fittings to work, the hose has to have the kind of rigidity that cold water provides. Think of a garden hose: in the winter, a garden hose will be very rigid and hard to coil and uncoil, but in summer, it becomes very soft and pliable, and easy to handle.
Bottom line: hot water will soften 1/2" drip hose to the point Read More

I want to use this to provide water to my livestock. I have a large pastor that I need to run underground tubing to a number of Spicket's. It's going to be low pressure and either underground or in the shade. Will this Leach any chemicals or contaminants that are potentially toxic to either livestock or people ?

Answer: 
safety research on this kind of plastic, polyethylene, is inconclusive and ongoing. There's no evidence that it's harmful, but also, no evidence that it's totally safe. I can tell you from 30 years experience with it, my animals have always drunk water from the emitters, and we've eaten the fruit our trees produce with no noticeable ill effects. In any case, I don't think you'll find it very useful for Read More

In any case, I don't think you'll find it very useful for the application you're planning-I'd go with PVC pipe-one of the main reasons is that little critters can and do easily chew through the irrigation tubing to get a drink, happens to me with enough frequency to make it challenging.

I'm not so worried about chemical leaching (for livestock anyway), but rather bacterial issues. Consider this: the biggest difference between domestic water supply hoses (like you get for an RV) and regular garden hoses is how much each allows bacterial growth inside the line. And any risk is increased with a low pressure/intermittent line.
Net: I'd use PVC instead. Read Less

As you've probably noticed, lawn mower blades are an instant kiss of death to this tubing.
Here are a few thoughts:
Use landscape pins (I make my own from 12-gauge galvanized wire) to hold the tubing down into the grass. Over time, the tubing will tend to work its way down into the lawn, and won't stick up so much.
You can help it along by using a garden knife (or flat shovel) to slice down into Read More

You can help it along by using a garden knife (or flat shovel) to slice down into the sod, and push the tubing (and pins) as far down as possible.
Or you can go a little further, and bury it in the soil - - if you live in a no-frost zone, or if your yard has enough slope to drain the tubing in winter.
Finally, consider using a string trimmer. I've string trimmed this tubing many, many times with no problem. (That's not true for the 1/4-inch distribution tubing, however - - string trimmers eat it for lunch.) Read Less

These 1/2" drip lines are very susceptible to mower damage, I've macerated a few in my day, so they shouldn't be anywhere near mower blades.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Drip Pipe and Great Value The 1/2" x 100' drip tubing is very flexible and durable. It worked just right for our flower beds, shrubs and garden. August 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tubing size inconsistent I purchased a 100 foot roll of .700 DIA tube with matching connecting elbows, T's etc. Connections leaked and the tube blew out of an elbow when used the first time. Considered H2O pressure was my fault until I purchased another 100 foot roll of exact same SKU number tubing to complete the project. The new tube diameter was visually larger which installed much harder but all new joints do not leak. Very frustrated that I now either tear up the project and hope the next roll of tubing will work or try and figure out how to keep the system from a major leak spending more $$$. New emitters, etc. June 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by funny pipe Does what it is supposed to do. Easy enough to work with. Mine does fine. July 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIG Polu drip tubing Fair tubing. Found it's extremely flexible and can bent easily. Fair product quality for the price paid. July 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by understand diameters... This is an excellent product. For those who seem confused, the 1/2" applies to the inner diameter-specs clearly state that the outer diameter is .7". Please don't give a good product one star because you don't understand how this kind of tubing is measured-it skews the overall rating. July 12, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Quality is good, but it is not 100 ft I ordered 100 ft tubing online. Picked up at my local store. I guided it through 40 ft PVC tubing, then found there are only about 20 ft left. So the length is way too short compared to what it claimed. The tubing I got is about 60 ft. Not sure what happened. June 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for my project Installed a drip irrigation system to my garden this spring and this tubing was perfect for the main supply line. Let it sit in the sun a little so it was easier to handle, but it was a breeze to work with. May 17, 2016
