I wanted to install a drip system in my garden and I was thinking that I wanted a 12 inch spacing on the emitters but I could only find 18 inch spacing. I decided to purchase it and see if it would work for me. I placed the drip tubing in my rows of raspberries, blackberries and grapes to start with. I ran the water pressure at 20 psi for 6 hour cycles on Mon., Wed. and Fri. of each week. It took only two cycles and ground was damp the complete width of each row. I have now been running this setup for several weeks and then decided to cut back the cycle time from 6 hours to 4 hours and it seems to be maintaining the right amount of moisture for my plants. I have only been having temps in the upper 70's at this point but as the temp goes up to the high 90's in my area I will have the ability to add more hours to the cycle time if needed. I am very pleased with this system and it has turned out to be much simpler than I expected. I have cut back on water use by a huge amount. Previously I was using soaker hoses to do my watering and they would split and then the running water would wash out a area and then I would have a mess to clean up. It was hard to control the amount of water applied as sometimes they wouldn't let much water flow, then I had to turn up the pressure and then it would flow too much and or split. I always had to adjust the water flow to meet my needs. So far I have saved several hours of work (each week) in my garden. I am expecting this work saving will continue as I am not expecting to have to tackle as many weeds as in the past because the water is more controllable and not running where I don't need or want it.

Durable drip line tubing for use in flower beds and gardens. Emitters are susceptible to clogging if water supply is not clean. (A filter may be required for well water) The 18 in spacing is a bit wide to get even watering. DIG also offers this tubing with 12 in spacing between emitters which is better. Calculate flow rate of the water source to determine what emitter spacing and length of tubing to use.

This is a good tubing for drip irrigation applications where the foliage density isn't too close together. As with other tubing of it's type, make sure that you adjust the water pressure so that it's not too high, otherwise, you'll blow out the drip holes and the barbed fittings won't stay without using band clamps. The main issue that I had with my project was the lack of availability of the fittings I needed. I ended up driving all over Dallas to find what I needed.

Added 500 feet to my existing drip system. The tubing is slightly thinner than our other tubing and the connectors (the barbed ones) keep popping off where we never had that problem with our other half inch drip tubing. The barbed connectors are so loose that you can pull them off by hand where that is impossible with the other brand of tubing. I had to put zip ties on the barbed fittings to keep them holding. I would use the over the tubing connectors which may hold better due to their design.
