Can I add a hose timer to this? If I can't what do I need to do to be able to add a timer to it. ...

Yes, you can certainly add a hose end timer to your system. The product you are inquiring about is ¼” tubing. All you need is a hose thread to quarter inch adapter, but I would suggest also adding pressure regulation and filtration to prevent potential blow-offs and clogging. Toro model 53756 is an example of the type of connection kit you may want to use to connect to your tap timer and ¼”-to-hose thread adapter.

Can I turn off emitters? Say I wanted to water every 3 feet?

Asked by Jimmy April 24, 2017

Answers

Not on this tubing. The emitters are built in to the tubing and cannot be adjusted.

the label says .5 gph per emitter and shows one hole with a drop of water. There are 2 holes every 6 inches. How many GPH per 6 inches?

This must be an average or a measurement taken near the water source. Simple physics tells you that the longer the distribution tube the more emitters you will be using. That implies there will be a drop in pressure. I have not found that to be a problem in uses of < ~12 ft. I originally tried a long loop of about 50 ft. but there was not enough water emitted at the outside of the loop (the 25 ft. region) to suit me. I changed to smaller loops or single lengths with an end plug and I have been pleased with the result. There is little loss of pressure at smaller lengths.

can I use entire 100 ft. length without cutting it into smaller sections?

Asked by Grady December 2, 2014

Answers

I have found that this works well in smaller loops. I have hooked several shorter loops to the larger .5in supply hose. When I hooked a long loop to the .5in, there was a drop in pressure at the outer end of the loop.

Are the emitters pressure compensated (PC)? What is the minimum working pressure?

Asked by sf August 29, 2012

Answers

I have found that longer distances (more than 10-12 ft.) from the water source do lose some pressure and thus emit less. You must use a pressure compensator when attaching to house water faucet; a house supply has too much pressure. That is the only experience I have. My system is not attached to a lawn watering system.

Blue-Stripe Drip Tubing selected for large garden
We installed Blue Stripe 1/4-inch drip tubing in our large community vegetable garden. Some of the rows are over 20 feet long, and a single drip tubing runs the whole length. The tubing has held up well over a 3-year period with very little replacement needed. We harvest over 400 pounds of produce for charity each year from this garden, so having an efficient, low-maintenance irrigation system is a high priority. The emitters almost never clog, even with the hard water in Chandler, Arizona. The blue stripe helps make the line more visible during harvest time when clippers might be in close proximity. I would recommend this product.

So far, so good
Like many others, I wanted to replace 1/4" soaker hose that clogs and only lasts a month or two. After reading a number of positive reviews, I purchased two roles of Blue Stripe for my raised-bed veggie garden. The tubing is versatile and easy to work with, although I did notice that some of the emitters don't flow as fast as others. Not a significant problem, as it seems everything is getting watered consistently. If this lasts more than one season, I will be very happy. Already it is a far better option than soaker hose.

Excellent dripper but I discovered a limit in application
Backround of user. I am not a contractor but a retired person who helps others to water their garden with a timer instead of watering with a hose. When you use any drip line emitter, you must reduce bib water pressure to 25 PSI, include a vacuum breaker and a filter. Then you transition from a 1/2" distribution line to the 1/4" blue line emitter which drips 1/2 gallon per emitter, every 6", per hour. Be aware that any line has some resistance to flowing water and that resistance reduces the net water pressure slightly. HOWEVER, IF YOU ARE LAYING THIS DRIPPER LINE IN A FLOWER GARDEN AND CURVING IT NEXT A PLANT TO WATER ITS ROOTS AND THEN TURN IT TO GO TO THE NEXT PLANT TO WATER, YOU ARE ADDING SIGNIFICANT RESISTANCE TO WATER FLOW. When you are not dripping, you can use a 1/4" distribution line to move the water from point A to point B. In one recent installation, the 1/4" dripping had stopped. I decided the total resistance to the flow, the distribution line and the dripper line was too much. I replaced all the 1/4" distribution with 1/2" Blue Line distribution and it corrected my problem. In closing, the 1/4" Toro Blue Line emitter is an excellent product. Test the effective length by inserting a hose end plug in one end and connect the emitter to a water source and see right away if the net water pressure is sufficient to meet your objective of watering the intended plants. I am an active 82 year old gardener.

Good tubing and emitters. I purchased and installed two rolls. The blue stripe to identify and distinguish the 6" emitter spacing is a good idea. Installed easily and seems to be working properly.

quality drip line
good quality but not available locally and should be available locally
by homegardner
Consistent performance
Prefer this over laser drilled because it is more consistent at each dripper, is spaced at 6 inches rather than 12, and has been very durable and reliable for me, including some that has been in service for over 12 years.

Nice product
I put these around trees and scrubs and they are great.

Excellent product
Product was received as scheduled and works well. The length was actually greater than 100 feet.

Great drip irrigation tubing!
Pretty much what the description says - 1/4" tubing with emitters. The nice thing is that the emitters are every 6 inches, which is hard to find. I just wish my local HD would carry them again, but free shipping makes it close to a wash. I use this stuff for dense flower beds and vegetable gardens - works like a champ!
