Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bertlio Easy to set-up and does a great job
This irrigation system was exceptionally easy to set up. I did it in an afternoon. It works exactly as described and does a great job with no problems. I was so sick of watering 30-40 potted plants every day and had really cut back on the amount of watering I was doing, which caused several of the plants to start dying. The irrigation system revived every single plant in about two weeks. I've got two strawberry plants that haven't had fruit on them in 2 years, and now we've got strawberries. And, the system is very easy to use. Just turn on the water, leave for twenty minutes, come back and turn it off. This system has save me tons of time. After the initial set-up, couldn't be easier to use. Highly recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nate Very Discrete way to water your plants
This kit is a very discrete way to keep your plants watered atomically. Ideal during the dry summer months when watering is hard to keep up with or while you are on vacation.
I used the drippers from the kit to water my plants and the sprayers to cover a narrow strip of grass along my driveway.
The trickiest part of the installation is getting the connecting barbs onto the ¼” hose. To make the hose softer and easier to insert over the barbs, I warmed the hose with a warm pail of water.
I installed 2 zones to balance the water usage between the drippers and the sprayers. I bought extra ½ in hose and ¼ in hose, additional nozzles for the sprayers, and smaller drippers to balance water between the large pots and small pots. In general the kit has plenty of stuff to get you started on your first drip irrigation project. It is a good value compared with buying everything individually.

I have used systems like this in the past and find of all this one to have more options than the rest. The nice thing for first timers is that the system can be changed with little effort. If you don't like how it looks just adjust. Very happy and will be purchasing again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nellie works well as advertised
Easy to install, but needed extra stakes for the 1/2 inch tubing. I bought a Y connector so I could still use the regular hose. It is set up and working well in my backyard so I have ordered another kit for my front yard. I am not sure how evenly the water is spread but I have extra drip emitters to add if there are dry spots.

Easy to install. I was a bit overwhelmed at first with all the pieces parts and the miles of tubing, but after I sat down and just started running tubing it came together easily. The system works beautfly. I put a timer in the system to regulate when it turns on and now I just sit back and watch my garden get watered twice a day. It has 360, 180, 90 degree micro sprinklers and a bunch of little drippers. I had way more parts left over which was cool. I am just thrilled at how well this system works and at $49 dollars and some change I think I got a steal of a deal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mezpa Save water and yet still have healthy green plants!
I moved into a great house, but the sprinkler/water system was so inefficient! I witnessed not only a waste of water, but most of my plants were not doing well. Since installing this kit, my plants are being properly watered , plus I feel good about not wasting waster!!! This is a biggie in Southern California. It has been fun adding new plants to my landscaping.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarlboroManStan Really good for thprice
Everything needed to install the system. A couple notes:
The 1/2' hose IS hard to deal with. I even heated it up. Instead, I found the secret to be only using short runs of the 1/2" pipe and connecting them using T and elbows. This allowed me to run 1/2" throughout the whole garden without fighintg with it.
The sprinklers they include are like 4 of the 360 degree 4 of the 180 and 4 of the 90. I needed a few more than that to cover the rest of the garden. You can buy them from Home Depot too - smart to buy a few more upfront if you think you are going to need them.
The last thing is I run my hose up to my garden only when I am watering. so I had to buy a quick connect kit to make it easy to plug the hose in, and then disconnect it when done.

So far it works great. I've had it for 3 weeks and everything is working perfect. It has a lot of parts but its pretty easy to figure out how everything goes together. I bought 2 sets and only needed to use 2nd set for extra sprayers and drippers. There was plenty of tubing in 1 set for what I needed. Do far great product and a great value. If it holds up through the winters then it'll be perfect.
