will tis work with a gravity feed from a rain barrel?

Asked by: TCStevieD
If your rain barrel is up a hill elevated enough to deliver about 25 PSI.... yes. If you're talking about a rain barrel coming off your roof in a subdivision... no

Can this be buried

Can this system be placed underground or with the roots block the emitters?
Asked by: WildBill
Hi WildBill, - Standard installation of a drip emitter line is to place it on top of the weed preventer mesh and then cover it with mulch. The malfunctioning emitters tend to be the #1 problem in drip irrigation installations. If you place them underground it is difficult to detect a problem and repair it. Since they should be covered with mulch to shelter them from heat and limit evaporation, there is no visual reason to place them underground. Drip irrigation systems have to be winterized and of course will not function correctly if it freezes. They have to be drained of water to prevent damaging the tubing. The further south you live gives you more options. If you use a thick enough layer of mulch you can lengthen the time you can use the system but hard freezes endanger the system and can do significant damage. I use an air compressor to clear the lines of water before a freeze. It works just as long as you use a regulator valve to hold the air pressure at or below the water pressure normally used in the system. Higher pressure can pop out the emitters and damage the emitter holes and in the extreme split the tubing. Caution when buying drip irrigation supplies as the fittings can be different sizes between different brands. You can end up with a pile of fittings that you can't use. Hope that this helps. DJK

can I connect this to sprinkle system?

I would like to take one head of sprinkle system and use this tubing to put on. Do I have to do it with all heads to get proper flow? The guy at home depot offer me 1/4inch tubing, but didn't warm me about pressure. Thank ou.
Asked by: Pegyna
no it is not recommended to do that unless all of the spray heads are capped.

I have 1/2" drip line (black) and 1/2" porous tubing (brown) and need to connect them

Hi, I have an area where I need some drip lines run from 1/2" black drip line, and then transitions to an area where a porous tubing is more efficient. Is there a way to connect the two of those? I have a 'T' I though would work but I cannot get the black tubing to insert into the connector. The reason I have a 'T' connector is because I have basically created a circle out of the soaker to water that area. Was going to connect the 1/2" black drip line to that and then run drips to the various plants in that area.
Asked by: TBear
Repairing and connecting 1/2" I.D. drip line hose can be challenging. I finally discovered that the plastic quick-connect fittings (male and female) that Home Depot sells for garden hose (see http://www.homedepot.com/p/Melnor-Product-Adapters-2-Pack-235-021/202051516 and http://www.homedepot.com/p/Melnor-Faucet-Adapter-2-Pack-235-058/100659507) happen to have the correct O.D. to slip into the 1/2" tubing. You'll have to use screw-type hose clams to make sure the adapters are held in place (Home Depot sells them individually or in small bags in the plumbing department). The rubber "o-ring" on the fittings help keep the connections water-tight. I use plastic caps on the ends of my drip lines (http://www.homedepot.com/p/Orbit-3-4-in-Threaded-Hose-Caps-2-Pack-27902/100659301). The big drawback is that the plastic fittings have a small I.D. which restricts the water flow somewhat. This summer I'll be running eight (8) fifty (50) foot lengths of 1/2" porous irrigation tubing for my raspberries. I've been told that this hose is designed for 25 psi, so I'm installing a water filter, a pressure reducer, and eight timers (one per row) so that only one row gets watered at a time. This should alleviate problems such as under-watering some rows while over-watering others.

1/2 in. x 100 ft.1 GPH Pressure Compensating Drip Line is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Size not labeled Hose diameter is not listed anywhere on the product. Hose was actually 5/8 inch and not 1/2 inch so it didn't work with any of my fittings. This is the skew that is supposed to be 1/2 inch...

Second, the flow is not close to equal at each drip point. Third, it crimps very easily. Once crimped, it will not uncrimp. You have to cut the crimp out of the line and use a coupling. Since it crimps so easily, I expect a hassle when I need to adjust the line (say for putting in new plants. If I were starting over, I would use the black .700 (not .710) tubing, pipe thread pressure regulator, and "flag" drippers. It might be good for a situation where you're not going to move it... and watering uniformity is not important... just too many limitations for me to ever use it again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hose connections The hose is great. I plan to redesign my water sprinkler system using this product. It will use 50% less water than conventional systems. My biggest hurtle is finding the hose barb connectors. None of the big box stores sells them and the only way to get them is though a distributor. So my installation is on hold until my oder arrives. I think you're missing a great opportunity by not selling them in your store and I think you would sell a lot of this product if you carried the accessories.

I wish I hadn't. 1) It costs twice as much as the regular non-compensating line. 2) The 18" emitter spacing gives it an extremely slow flow rate. 3) The emitters make an annoying "EEEEEEEEEEEEE" sound. There's nothing wrong with the manufacturing of this product, but I think it would be much better to use a separate pressure regulator with regular tubing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been using these for perhaps 5 or 6... I have been using these for perhaps 5 or 6 years and find them very rugged and long lasting. For me they work best at a very low pressure for a long period of time where the soil gets wet perhaps a foot from the drippers and the 18 inch spacing is not a problem. Maybe 1/2 psi (a foot of water head).

It appears that only the existing holes can be used, even when they are not positioned as desired. Any added holes cause too much water to be allowed out, necessitating repair.
