This vegetable garden drip irrigation kit contains everything you will need to build a gravity feed drip irrigation system. A rain barrel bulkhead fitting is included to turn a garbage can, bucket, or barrel into a rain barrel. This gravity drip irrigation kit is designed for a small vegetable garden. Uses one 1/2" main line with 1/4" Soakerhose Drip Tubing for lateral lines. The number of plants that can be watered with each vegetable garden drip irrigation kit is an estimate based on the total number of drip emitters provided in the vegetable garden drip irrigation kit. If you want to automate your gravity feed drip irrigation system .
About Gravity Feed Drip Irrigation Systems
Drip irrigation kits are designed for use with constant pressure of 15 - 30 psi. Since the pressure with a gravity feed drip irrigation system is often well below this range, and drops as the gravity feed drip irrigation system operates, drip emitter flow rates will be substantially less than those specified for the individual drip emitter. Output will also vary between drip emitters on the same line of drip tubing as they are placed farther away from the water source. We have done extensive testing in order to help you design an efficient gravity feed drip irrigation system for your vegetable garden. Please read the detailed instruction guide before planning and installing your gravity feed drip irrigation system for vegetable garden.

Some drip irrigation hole punches are shaped like a pencil and simply poke a hole as they push through the drip irrigation tubing. They require more force and can slip off of the drip tubing before they make the hole. The Super Punch (shown here) has a squeeze handle and is only $9.90. A less expensive option is our Deluxe Hole Punch which has a sharp, circular cutting edge. This drip irrigation hole punch is comfortable, easy on your hands, and costs only $3.90.
A good hole punch will actually cut a tiny circle out of the drip irrigation tubing. The plug of drip irrigation tubing can be removed from the cutting edge of the punch with a paper clip. Push it through the cutting end to clear any plastic debris.
If you installed a drip irrigation system to water hanging baskets or flower pots, put a 1/4" flow control valve on each pot. You can reduce the drip irrigation flow or shut it off completely. It's handy if the pot is has not yet been planted and you don't want to water it.
