Answer: 
Yes, but the connectors required would cost more... PVC is much better and more stable.

Answer: 
It comes coiled in about an 18 to 24 inch roll. You can't make the coils much smaller than that without kinking the tubing.

Answer: 
I have around 1000 feet run in garden & yard and pressure is around the same, sure there is some lose but all depend on pressure you are using, I have reduced pressure to start with for drip system as you don't want pressure to high or you will blow out drip heads

Will this Poly Drip Tubing crack and get brittle after about 5 or 6 years underground.
I live in the southern part of Arizona.
My landscaper told me the Poly Drip Tubing gets brittle over time and causes leaks in the watering system.
I wanted to check with you people to see if this is true.

Thank you Don Sprouls

I have begun installing standard while 1/2" PVC under ground and then I bring short lengths of the poly drip tubing and connect the two together with a PVC compression fitting. This means the leaks are isolated to individual trees and bushes (3 bushes connected to one PVC compression fitting) and no lengths of poly tubing just siting on the ground. Read Less

I lived in Tucson for 35 years and used this same type of drip tubing for irrigation almost the whole time I was there. As long as the line is buried several inches under the ground, it should last 20+ years. My biggest problem was gophers that would occasionally eat through the tubing to get water. It doesn't happen often, but you do have to watch for leaks from that. As long as it isn't buried too Read More
I lived in Tucson for 35 years and used this same type of drip tubing for irrigation almost the whole time I was there. As long as the line is buried several inches under the ground, it should last 20+ years. My biggest problem was gophers that would occasionally eat through the tubing to get water. It doesn't happen often, but you do have to watch for leaks from that. As long as it isn't buried too deeply, leaks are usually obvious and easy to fix. I wouldn't recommend leaving it above ground. All types of varments will chew holes in it there and the UV will make it deteriorate faster. This DIG tubing seems to be as good as any other name brand like Toro. Read Less

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A good buy. Product came as stated online for shipping. Product was what was pictured online. August 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Take the time to carefully unwind the coil I had a rats nest with my first 500 feet, Then it crimped at stress points and eventually leaked as the crimp weakened the pipe walls, my second 500 feet I took the time to uncoil and kept the tape inside the coil as I unwound it, no kinks...Good thing the price is right but still have to wait for delivery July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good value Excellent product, and half the price of the local retail irrigation supply store. June 14, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really good product The poly drip tubing was used to make artificial fish structure. And it worked perfectly, along with the Home Depot 5 gallon bucket and top. December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent quality. Is an excellent product. Wish the stores would carry the 500 ft and not have to order it. However, it was nice having it delivered right to my home. Excellent buy. February 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fast, Easy, Reliable Watering Systems Component We live in rural Western Washington State. Surprisingly, watering is necessary in the summer months and we need a flexible, easily maintained, easily changed watering system. The DIG poly tubing allows us to easily expand, contract, and modify our watering system. The 1/2 inch tubing delivers a volume of water sufficient to reach just about anywhere on our 3 acre parcel. Despite branching, adding new areas, and various other things that might tax its capability, the DIG tubing has never failed us. It is easy to install. If you can push two things together, you can use this highly flexible system. Adapters come in a wide range of types from 'L's to 'T's to adapters for splicing pieces and connecting garden hoses. Please refer to the attached photos to see how connectors can be used to branch lines to various areas. The connections depicted water 8 garden beds and 5 free standing trees - all from one garden hose feed. That's impressive by any standard. In the middle of this year's expansion of our system to some new garden beds, we had to leave on a research trip for our newest novel. There was no time to connect a permanent water line feed to the DIG tubing. As you can see in the photo, the quick solution of a hose end adapter worked very well. The gardens look great and are flourishing after our two week absence. DIG's tubing can be buried as still put up with significant foot and wheelbarrow traffic. It stands up well to winter cold and summer heat. Changing watering features is as simple as removing the unwanted 1/4 inch tubing, inserting a DIG 'goof' plug, and running the new 1/4 inch tubing to the desired place. It is so durable that parts of our watering system are made up of reclaimed and reused DIG 1/2 inch tubing. It's really that good. We swear by DIG 1/2 inch tubing. For reliability, durability, flexibility and - above all - value, you simply cannot beat DIG. July 3, 2013
