Not enough water line included for price. 25' doesn't make it. Instructions not clear & heads not adjustable enough.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TriedIt Simply a bad product
Though it wasn't too difficult to understand the purpose of each part and to make a layout, this simply doesn't work. No water at all from the emitters. The Rainbird website offers suggestions if the emitters prevent water flow, but none are practical answers. 1) check water pressure. Really? I'm just a basic homeowner who attached this device to the outdoor faucet. I really should know about water pressure and how to adjust it? 2) check for blockages in the hose. Brand new hoses - I should be concerned about blockages? Sounds like a quality control issue. 3) check for kinks in the water line. Nope, unless moderate bending of the hose while it lays on the ground constitutes a kink.
Don't consider purchasing this. Rainbird should pay me $20 for the time to do a layout, then to put all the pieces back in the box for its ride to Home Depot's return desk.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MrThunder Defective Parts and Not Enough Parts to Water 10 Plants
This isn't necessarily a bad kit, but be aware that there are quality control issues and there aren't actually enough parts included to water 10 plants, as advertised, only 9. I found several of the T connectors had the T outlet blocked off. Fortunately, I checked mine before installation by running a straightened paper clip up the T end and looking through the straight through portion. I fixed the defective T connectors by drilling them out with a 5/64" drill bit. Also, since only 8 T connectors are supplied, it's only possible to water 9 plants with the parts included - 8 coming off the T connectors, 1 coming off the end of the line.

So I have added more emitters, but having done so I am having problems with water dripping from the emitters. I have a total 18 emitters 12 2GPH and 6 5 GPH. Instead of drip I get a heavy flow from 3 of the emitters. I have turned the pressure from the faucet down really low and the only 3 of the emitters continue to flow water - not drip. I have blown through the system and air comes out of the emitters. I disconnedt them and discovered that more emitters will flow water but not drip. I cannot imagine what could cause the system not to work. I have increased the water pressure by turning on the faucet fuller, but to no avail. So I am no better off than when I started. I am stuck and have no way of troubleshooting the problem. No I do not recommend this product. (Oh by the way, quality control is lacking on the parts or someone cannot count. I purchased 10 additional emitters but only 8 came in the package.
