Before Installing, its best to let your drip tubing sit in the sun for at least 30 minutes. This softens the tubing and allows it to unroll for easier installation.
If you only need short lengths of micro tubing, its best to leave one zip tie attached to the roll. This helps to keep the tubing from unraveling.
For longer lengths, start by using a tubing holder stake or heavy object to keep the tubing in place. Then unroll the tubing as you would roll a tire. This helps to help keep the tubing from spiraling and causing kinks.
Once unrolled, use tubing holder stakes at 5 to 10 foot intervals to secure the tubing in place.
Now your tubing is ready to be attached to Drip Emitters, Micro Sprays or Drip Tubing.
