Customer Questions & Answers

It would have been appropriate and helpful to write about the tubing in specification.,eg,How many feet long it is and what is its internal diameter.

Asked by: gardener
It is called "1/4 in. tubing". That is the outside diameter. Not sure what the ID is.

How many feet

How many feet
Asked by: DebbieO
Walking off my system, I'd estimate 50 ft of tubing. Some of this will be you supply line; about 15-20 ft will be used to create your lateral drippers.

I need to water 20 plants, what would be required?

Asked by: Honeyhillboy
You will need two of these systems and a Y Hose Splitter. Each kit comes with 10 drippers. There are DIG kits that have more drippers and T-connectors.

Can I make this work with a raised bucket/barrel using gravity? Or do the dripping ends need pressure from a real faucet.

For 15-20 potted plants on my balcony, if I go away for the weekend. No faucet there. Thanks
Asked by: twh
The pressure regulator provided with the kit is set for 25psig, this is about 60 feet of head, so no it wouldn't work unless your bucket is pretty tall.

Patio Drip Irrigation Kit is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied!!!! Pretty much made this installation by myself. My husband did help hold the sections of tubing up while I was on a ladder for installation on our 10 foot tall pergola. Kit comes complete. The only thing we added was a hose bib manifold, a timer, some extra tubing, and some white plastic conduit (because the pergola is white vinyl) for cosmetic purposes only. The hanging pots are watered every twelve hours through the drip nozzles. They have never looked so good! If you like hanging pots, I would highly recommend this product. Can't beat the price. Excellent technical support as well. Very responsive!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from After considerable frustration setting up this system, I am now quite pleased with it. It is wate... After considerable frustration setting up this system, I am now quite pleased with it. It is watering my plants every morning for about 50 minutes. Great time and water saver! I only used about half of the T and Elbow connectors, which is fine. You will use one T for every drip emitter installed. Nine Ts and ten drippers are included. Pros: Inexpensive system; Works GREAT once fully assembled with a daily battery-operated hose timer; Saves time; Uses less water; Plants aren't beaten up by hose spray; No splashing; Waters plants even when you are out of town. Cons: Insufficient Assembly Instructions – Assembly instructions tell you WHAT to do, but not HOW to do it. Layout - Buy a battery-operated hose timer (Orbit 1-Outlet Hose Timer) and Y Shut-Off 2-Way Metal Hose Connector (e.g., Melnor brand) or similar METAL hose connector with built-in shut offs, so that you can still have access to your faucet for additional hand watering once the timer and irrigation systems are installed. Lay out your “Supply Line” along the planters you intend to water. Cut off the remaining line. This remaining line will become your “Laterals” or “Drip Lines”. Cut this into the number of Drip Lines you need (generally, one per container). For my layout, I had about 8 Laterals and each was about 24 in. long. Connections - There is no information about HOW to connect the Ts and drip emitters to the plastic tubing. After much struggling and many attempts to find out what worked, this is the method I used: (a) Cut tubing at a SLIGHT angle (10-20 degrees; not 45 degrees, as this interferes with proper seating of the part on the tubing); (b) Coat T or drip emitter with silicone lubricant (I used a hair product!); (c) Double over about 3 inches of tubing (don't worry, it won't crack) and seat the fold in the palm of your right hand (this reduces slippage); Hold the part (T or emitter) firmly in your left hand; (d) Wiggle back and forth in the x- and y- direction approximately 20 times before even looking to see if the part is seated in the tubing; (e) Repeat as necessary. Stakes - All connections in this kit are held together with “A Hope and A Prayer” – the “stakes” in this kit are a joke. They just sort of snap over the drip tubing with a “C”-shaped connection. The tubing and the tiny stakes did not stay in place at all. You might be better to buy some Orbit 1/4 in. Loop Stakes (10-pack) or some plastic tent stakes to hold tubing in place. Time – It took about an hour to set up the system and then maybe 30 minutes to adjust it the next day. Overall, I'm glad I bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and easy I wouldn't count on this being a permanent setup, but if you need a quick and cheap solution that is more precise than a soaker hose, this kit is great, and connects straight into a garden hose. It does require a lot of hand strength to push the hose over the attachments, and I did purchase some in-line drippers and additional tubing to finish the project.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Starter Kit, but lacks a pressure reducer. This is a very basic drip irrigation kit, comparable to the Harbor Freight kit priced at $6.99 (which I also own) My only gripe is not including the pressure reducer. It comes with a backflow preventer and hose adapter. DIG has a pretty detailed instruction booklet with easy to read instructions and illustrations. You will not get that from Harbor Freight.. DIG also has a huge selection of accessories in Home Depot, which gives you options to really customize your system, (additional info/suggestions) -Take your time. -The fittings are supposed to be difficult to attach to hose. A mega tight fit means less chance of leaking. -I installed a DIG 25 g.p.h pressure reducer on my spigot. (purchased separately) -I used PTFE pipe seal tape on the male threads to act as lubrication/sealant. Tightened just enough to prevent leaks between pressure reducer, backflow preventer and hose adapter. No leaks. My system is 15 feet long, and some lines run about 2 feet off the ground. I have no problems with pressure, even at my furthest plant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I couldn't be happier with this purchase (so far) Every summer my wife likes to get some hulking hanging flower baskets (from Mennonite country) to decorate our front porch. Although she watered them, she would need me to bring them up and down off their hooks as they were too heavy and high for her. This year, I decided I had enough. I was determined this year to build an irrigation system out of PVC myself and make it automated so this tedious chore would be no more. I had no idea that these drip irrigation systems even existed. I am so glad I stumbled upon it prior to my starting my project. This kit is cheap (as in inexpensive). It was a very easy to install. ***TIP- if you need to work around vinyl/aluminum and don't want to drill/nail holes, 3M Command makes small cord clamps that work great and are not permanent. This purchase saved me a boat load of time and money up front. And now it continues to save me time and money as it is installed with a automatic faucet timer and only runs the correct amount of water to each basket. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. Only wish I had found it years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DIG patio drip irrigation Worked just as described. Using it when we travel. I bought separate timer so irrigation kit worked on a set schedule. All plants were alive and well when we returned home.
