Does this tubing have the holes in it already?

Asked by Doc December 12, 2020

Answer

This tubing does not have holes in it. You could either lead this to your plants and then attach emitter tubing to the end of it that then waters your plants. Or you can lead this tubing around your plants and attach individual emitters to it wherever your plants are.

Can this be used with my irrigation system plugging into it I have a ground pump?

Asked by Mikechase December 4, 2020

Answers

As long as you have a pressure regulator in place that reduces the water pressure you would be okay. Drip systems are intended to run at a maximum water pressure of 30 psi, so be sure to add a regulator if your pressure is higher than this.

Can this tubing be buried for running to drip emitter tubing that would be above ground?

Asked by StephenUCF November 1, 2020

Answers

There is no reason this cannot be buried. Be aware, though, that buried lines and fittings may make it more difficult to discover, locate, and repair any leaks that may occur.

Is this heavy duty (0.58 I.D) or standard (0.60 I.D.)

Asked by ty October 21, 2020

The lower the number, the thicker and stronger it will be. However these two measurements given may not determine if one is heavy duty or standard. There's not a big difference in thickness between the two and the may be together in same category of either standard or heavy duty, depending what it is you are measuring. What is important for determining between standard and heavy duty, at least for conduit and pipe, or sheet metal sizes, would be by what gauge they are; 0.053 to 0.058" is approximately 17 gauge and 0.060 to 0.065 is 16 gauge. If you are just talking about drip irrigation then the material would make a difference here, polyethylene would be more durable than poly-vinyl. Polyethylene would more heavy duty than the vinyl and withstand the sun better than the vinyl... Hope this helps...

I don't know the exact size or weight of the coil. I have already used more than half of it. It is as big as a car tire and it will not fit in a suitcase.

Better than the other brand. Thicker wall, easier to work with. Should last a really long time. The only negative was that the thicker wall was a little harder to punch

Easy to work with, should last for years! I used it as a flow through solar pool heater. Put in two 500’ lines & it’s made a difference. I’m going to add more at a future date.

The tubing is curved and flattened out and consequently it did not work with my existing connectors. They just wouldn't go in. (See photo of rainbird connector which I bought at home depot and the blue tipped connector which used to work with old hose but not with this hose) tried with both 5/8th and 1/2" connectors I bought at home depot. I brought in a cut piece of hose and connectors back to home depot and 2 different employees couldnt get it to work either. Next day I went to retail garden drip supply place and bought other connectors and got it to connect. The guy there also suggested soaking it in hot water to make hose more flexible. Sorry I don't have pic of that connector. It is skinny and barebones - just what I needed.

Drip line 2.0. Hoping this Thicker wall drip line will not crack as easily in the Sonoran Desert like the previous thinner walled pipe did. Still easy to handle, but noticeably thicker with an etched exterior rather than smooth which makes it easier to grip.

Defective
I purchased a roll of the tubing, hand dug trenches, plumbed fittings, and I noticed a kink in the line. I looked closely at the tubing, and I found in-line emitters in the poly pipe. In random places. 20 to 30 feet is perfect pipe, and 20 feet has drip emitters in it. Main problem for this, is that some of the emitters are in the trench under the lawn. Recommendation for this product if it is without emitters. Will be happy with drip emitters if that is what I needed, and might be fine for a garden. Rainbird offered discount on my next online order. Thanks to them for that

Quality product, used in above-ground application. Can sustain minor damage without leakage
After searching on the web and going to physical irrigation stores, I decided this product was the best price for our application. I had some minor trouble in the laying process, the tubing didn't lay straight enough for all of my emitters to end up facing the same direction. I've had the product for about a year, and it is still in the field. I did not notice any damage from rodents, nor from the sun. My advice is to test out fittings before buying them. I had a very difficult time finding the right fit -- other brands didn't fit snugly, I even went to other hardware stores and back to the irrigation store, to no avail. I ended up getting compression fittings by RainBird, which had to be ordered -- through Home Depot. They were available within 2 days. I should have done this in the beginning, as it would have saved much time and headache. As stated in the title, there were a couple of incidences of slight depressions to the tubing (beginning to place emitters in the wrong location/direction). These places did not leak, and are not noticeable. The plastic is rigid, and the RainBird emitter puncturer is a bit too weak/small. I recommend a handheld tool with a metal tip, especially if you are installing hundreds of emitters!
