Will this work with a 5gal bucket with a spigot as the main source of water supply?

Yes, I used it with various size planters. It worked extremely well. It requires using a hair dryer to get the pieces into the black tubing.

Yes. I used 2 kits. I had it hooked to 1 spigot and it worked fine together. I had great water pressure. This might be necessary for working with 2 sets.

Will it work with low water pressure.

It says to connect the timer first and then the pressure regulator, back flow prevented to the timer. But timer leaks.

The best way to diagnose/troubleshoot this problem is to speak with one of our trained technicians. Please call our toll free telephone number 1.800.344.2281 ext 143 during our business hours (M-F from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM) from the installation site.

We connected 9 potted plants using the tubing to the garden hose. It only drips water to the first one and not others.

There must be a clog or bad connection then

the flow rate can be adjusted? How?

Asked by Raj September 5, 2018

Answers

No, the flow rate cannot be adjusted because the kit includes pressure compensating pre-set 1 GPH drippers which are not adjustable.

Depending on the pressure of your water system, there will be a somewhat of a difference in pressure but I do not think it will matter much. The best thing is to just do it and add more drippers for the second story box if it seems dryer. I would put a dripper every 12 to 16 inches, depending on what is growing in your box.

I doubt it. It connects to a regular garden faucet and needs to have most of the faucet flow..

Complete drip watering system that is easy to understand. The tubing fits very tightly into the plugs, you will have to have good hand strength. The stakes to hold the tubing in place are very weak. If the tubing isn't straightened out yet, the stakes will pull right out. We were able to buy additional tubing and complete a project with 5 pots.

Great and inexpensive! I used this kit and bought 100 ft more of tubing and some more parts for my patio irrigation set. It waters three large pots and several vegetable pots and a small raised garden. This is a great starter kit and saves me 20 minutes of watering a day. You often cant see the drippers working much but if you dig a little, you can see the water has fanned out in the soil. I hooked it up to a timer on my hose bib and everything is watered once a day. The only thing I didnt like was the tube fasteners with nails. The nails were way too short to secure in the few wooden spots I needed it. The kit also came with 90 degree elbows and a 25 PSI pressure reducer which I was unaware of. The tubing can be difficult to secure to the barbs and I got a few cuts doing it. I recommend letting the tubing sit out in the sun for a little while (so it's easier to work with) and twisting the barb into it.

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.

I really wanted this product to work out. I read the reviews and the Q&A on HomeDepot.com and it seemed like it could be a little tough to set up but worked great after that. I could not get the parts that screw together to seal. I had leaks every time I turned it on to test. I finally tightened the pieces so much (in an attempt to get it to seal properly) that I cracked one of them. I ended up returning this product and will shop around for another brand.

Excellent Irrigation System for Potted Plants
One thing you cannot do in Houston is forget to water the plants or it's a given, they're dead. This system has completely eliminated the need to remember to water the plants, that is if you add a timer to your set up (highly recommended). Installation tip: Fill a coffee cup about 1/4 full of water and heat in the microwave until the water is almost too hot to briefly touch. Before attaching the tubing to a dripper, micro sprayer, or connector place the end of the tubing in the hot water and let soak for about 10 seconds (softens the vinyl tubing, making the process of connecting things together extremely easy). If you do the hot water soaking trick you will save yourself a ton of time and your hands will not hurt for the next couple of days.
