I have 4 4'x50' raised beds. Will this product, I'm thinking one for each bed, work with a raised rain barrel as a water source? What extra parts will I need to have three lines run down each bed?
Asked by: kat
DIG long version to this question: DIG’s ML50 raised bed drip irrigation kit uses 50 feet of our ¼ inch dripline with 9-inch spacing between the drippers. If a rain barrel is used, the system will be limited to the size of the barrel, the pressure available from the barrel and the length of the drip line. Ideally for this large system, an outlet faucet will work better with the long length of the drip line. The drip line inside the kit will use up to 33 gallons per hour per each length of 50 feet. To have a system that can cover up to four 4 x 50-foot raised beds starting from a faucet, we recommend the following; if the system starts from a rain barrel, see limitation above: For each of the 4-foot-wide raised beds, you can have up to three rows of vegetables with one length of dripline per each row. If you have less than three rows, use the basic layout of one line of the ¼ inch dripline per each vegetable row with spacing between the rows to be no less than 12 inches. Due to the small diameter of the drip line, the maximum length of each line cannot be longer than 25 feet. The list of parts needed for four 4 x 50-foot-long raised beds will include: 1. 1-ML50 raised bed kit. This kit will have all the parts to start the system for only one row of 50 feet long. a. Installation steps: To the faucet, connect the ¾” backflow device, ¾” pressure regulator and the ¾” swivel adapter. If rain barrel is used, attached the swivel adapter only. To the swivel adapter connect the ½ inch drip tubing and lay it from the faucet along the center of the raised beds. If you need more of the ½ inch drip tubing you can buy additional lengths in 50 feet, model B35 or 100 feet, model B36. 2. To cross from bed to bed, you may need additional ½ inch elbows, DIG model C36, and you may need up to 4 elbows for the first 3 beds and 2 for the last one, for a total of 14. The kit has only 8 elbows. 3. Per each raised bed, you may need up to 150 feet of ¼ inch drip line to cover three rows. If only one row is used, then 50 feet is adequate. DIG ML-109, ¼ inch drip line with 9-inch spacing is available in 100 feet length. 4. To the ½ inch drip tubing at the center of each bed, punch a hole to the side facing the row. Insert the ¼ inch barb into the end of the ¼ inch drip line and insert the barb into the hole on the ½ inch drip tubing. Repeat per each row and per each side. Lay out the ¼ inch drip line and secure it to the ground the ¼ inch stake (included), with one stake per every 10 to 20 feet. 5. After you complete the layout, turn the water on and flush the line. 6. Close the end of each line with the plugs included, and the hose end for the ½ inch. 7. After you complete the installation, test the system to see that no leak occurs, and the system is working. 8.

Can this be used with gravity-fed water from an elevated rain barrel?

I have a 30 Gallon rain barrel that I'd like to use as the water source. Will a gravity-fed water supply provide enough water pressure for this system to operate correctly?
Asked by: Bob
The ML50 raised bed garden drip kit can be installed in a system with pressure and without pressure such as gravity feed and not installing the pressure regulator included in the kit. With gravity feed water will always take the path of least resistance. This should be considered if deciding to place tubing on the ground and punch holes every few inches. What you will run into is that the openings closest to the water source will discharge much more water than the openings farther away on the line. If the distance is very long you may not even get any water flow out of the last holes on the line. The distance will depend on the height of the barrel for pressure, and the flow uniformity of the drippers for length. Do not use pressure compensating drippers or pressure regulator Efficiency, and uniformity of gravity feed systems can be improved by selecting a low flow dripper, or drip line with .5 GPH (2 L/H), see the raised bed kit information, and raising the height of the barrel from the ground. With drippers or drip line (in the kit), you have better control of flow rate in comparison to poking a hole in the tubing, and better uniformity from the system due to the dripper flow uniformity. With a gravity feed system, you need to fill the container daily or every other day. Also, the only way to adjust the time for the tank to empty, or the drippers’ flow rate, is to change the height of the barrel, the volume of the barrel, and/or the number of drippers in the system. Another problem with gravity feed systems is that the size of the system is limited by the size of the barre. Barrel large enough to provide adequate flow and pressure to increasingly larger areas would quickly become unmanageable. If adding more outlets (drippers) to the line, uniformity will decrease, with more water at the beginning of the line and less at the end. In addition, as the water level in the bucket drops, the drippers’ flow rate drops. To have an effective gravity feed system; consider the size of the barrel and the number of drippers in the drip line. Like drip irrigation, gravity feed systems need a minimum pressure to operate. To gain pressure in gravity feed systems, use this calculation: To measure water pressure with gravity feed, means you must raise the water source (barrel) above the system lines. For every 1 foot (12 cm) of elevation above the system you will gain .433 PSI (.030 bar). This means that if your water source is 10 feet (3m) above the drip system you will have 4.33 PSI (.30 bar) at the start of the system. (.433 x 10 = 4.33) Keep in mind that with low pressure, such as 4.33 PSI (.30 bar), you will have limited distance to run the ½” or ¼” line. DIG

Can this system be directly connected to a garden hose or standard outdoors house faucet?

Can this system be directly connected to a garden hose or standard outdoors house faucet?
Asked by: Lakerguy
Drip system can be connected to any type of threads using the right type of fittings. To connect to a faucet or garden hose, use fittings with hose thread such as, D45 back flow device with 3/4 inch hose thread, D57A 3/4 inch filter with hose thread, D46 3/4 inch pressure regulator with hose thread and C34, swivel adapter to connect to the a drip tubing with .700 OD.

It is designed to attach to a hose or faucet fitting so I had to buy a few extra parts to convert my sprinkler system with a 1/2 inch riser. While there was plenty of 1/2 tubing in the kit, the 50 feet of 1/4 inch tubing was about 100 feet short of what was needed to complete the project. There are lots of connection fittings left over in the kit. Overall though, it gave me a good start to what I needed and I am happy with the completed project.

Definitely user friendly but I ended up with so many left over parts I didn't need. Probably would have been cheaper to buy just the parts but the instructions were good and the kit helped me learn how to put an irrigation system together. The only bad part was the attachment to the spigot is leaky no matter how much I tighten it so I have to put a bucket underneath to catch the extra water. Over all it's a great learner's kit.

The 1/2 inch poly tubing is very hard to work with, even when left out in the sun, as recommended, to allow for flexibility. It would also have been nice if they had more 1/4 poly tubing stakes. In all, it was an easy set up and works well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good start We purchased this to use for 3 4x4 raised bed located near a hose spicket. It's easier set up than expected. We ran the larger tubing off the backside of the beds with the drip hose off of that. We connected another kit off of that to water potted plants. We didn't have enough of the drip line to cover the entire 4x4x3 boxs or nearly enough stakes. Seems easy enough to purchase more accessories though. A negative part of the kit was that one of the attachment for the hose spicket/timer area broke when my husband was trying to take it off and re attach it because it was leaking. Luckily we had another from the other potted plant kit purchased. Overall good starting point and price!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to install I used this kit to water my 4x16 raised garden bed, and it worked great. There was enough supply line to go from my existing outside faucet, run along the house until it passed my shed, turn 90 degrees, extend along the shed, then reach the raised bed. There was enough drip line to make 3 runs along the raised bed. The only reason this kit did not get 5 stars is because there are not enough stakes to secure the lines to the ground. I used several landscape stakes (maybe 12-15 of them) to secure both the supply line and the drip lines. The supply line stays low enough in the grass (because of the added stakes) that I can mow right over the top of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If I can do it anybody can Read the reviews. watched the videos. maybe i can do this? Ordered 2 of the items, I didn't know how much of a mistake I would make so I needed to make sure I had extra parts on hand. Watched the videos again and went to it. I put on my patience hat and took my time.OMG its so simple. I've always watered with sprinklers like everybody else and never really been happy with my garden. Somebody is always getting more water than the other and i have to constantly move the sprinkler. The street gets watered the most! BUT LET ME TELL YA SOMETHIN! My garden has never looked like this before EVER! I set the whole thing up on a timer that waters every other day for an hour. You have to figure out how many drips come out to a gallon. so its up to you how much water you want the plants to have. For some reason one of the drip lines stopped dripping but all i did was make sure it was secure in the main hose. Problem fixed. Would I buy it again? most definitely. I've told every body about it and have even taken pictures to post of facebook of the drip line and the plants! It was a little pricey, but it has saved me untold amounts of time and agravation messing with a sprinkler to make sure everybody got water. I Love it :) I don't know what kind of sheIf life it has. Seems pretty sturdy. still walk the garden everyday but now its not to move the sprinkler but to see how everybody is doing :) This picture was from when I first started. But NOW every cage is completely full and coming out the top. AMAZING!
