Answer: 
No, there aren't holes already in it. It is like a super long, coiled up, drinking straw -- one hole at each end, nothing more. You could use a small drill bit to put holes in it, but honestly, 1/4" tubing is so small that this probably won't be very practical. I use 8-port irrigation manifolds and run individual lengths of 1/4" tubing out to each plant from the manifold. The manifold has screws for Read More

You could use a small drill bit to put holes in it, but honestly, 1/4" tubing is so small that this probably won't be very practical. I use 8-port irrigation manifolds and run individual lengths of 1/4" tubing out to each plant from the manifold. The manifold has screws for adjusting the drip rate of each port.
You could also splice in lengths of 1/4" drip soaker hose, but I don't recommend this option either. Drip soaker hoses are usually made out of recycled tire rubber, which I don't consider safe for human consumption. If you are just watering ornamental plants it might be okay, but I'm eating food I grow in my garden, so I won't be using recycled tire soaker hoses in my system. Read Less

1/4 in. x 500 ft. Poly Micro Drip Tubing is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, excellent price The least expensive tubing you can buy and it holds up well even in scorching Arizona sunshine. Yes, it is not super flexible, but it is definitely more flexible than tubing I've used prior. You could pay $1.50 extra to get the vinyl tubing version of this product (Model # B38500) that is presumably more flexible. I use a heat gun on this polyethylene version to soften it if I want to shape it or when inserting hose barbs -- makes it very easy to put together. The hose cools off nice and stiff again so I know it won't kink or work it's way off the hose barbs. This product is probably (hopefully) less toxic than other gardening products that contain lead (brass garden valves) or recycled tire rubbers (soaker drip hoses, garden hoses). This is something I'm very concerned about since I'm eating the food I grow in my garden! Low Density Polyethylene is the same stuff used for water bottles and other food containers, sometimes even plastic wrap. While the 2% Carbon Black content could be a potential carcinogen, I'm hoping that it will be bound up in the plastic and not pose a health threat. I do wish they would state up front whether this product is safe or toxic. The product description says "manufactured with an antioxidant," which doesn't tell me what this last ingredient is to research it's toxicity. Besides normal drip irrigation, I use this tubing for air stones in my hydroponic ponds and fish tanks. Using this tubing is cheaper than running an equivalent length of copper electric wire! I put all my aquarium pumps in my shop and ran tubing out to each pond. I'm thinking of using this tubing as the air feed for an air-lift well pump. The tubing is specified for 60psi. 60psi can theoretically push a 138 ft high column of water, which is far better than surface jet pumps that can only pull water up to a maximum of 33.9 ft. Now I need a 60psi air compressor that doesn't use leaded brass or other toxic components that could contaminate the water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what others say I order this tubing thinking that it would be flexible. Not at all. I didn't even take it home I immediately returned it. Don't wast your money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best quality and value I've been an irrigation specialist for 20 years. I've installed thousands of feet of 1/4 inch tubing. Some tubing is very difficult to work with. This is not. The 500 foot roll helps keep the tubing from curling up. The material of the tube makes it easier to install emitters onto it. The price is unmatched.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best way to Go... Economical The first thing out of the box that I noticed was how much tougher and stronger this tubing is over any I have used in the past. When you invest in a drip system, you want the best you can afford and you'll want plenty of drip line to configure, reconfigure and repair existing lines. It's the best way to get water from the source to the end user with the least amount of waste. Running individual lines to planters or strip gardens or individual pots can take a lot of drip line and the best way to get your money's worth is to buy in bulk. With 500 feet, you can cut individual lengths without fear of running out before the job is done and can expect this product to give years of exceptional service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great idea Purchasing the tubing in this quantity made it much easier. I didn't have to worry about running out and needing to back and get more. The price for buying this amount was much better too.
