This kit can easily be automated by adding a hose thread, battery-operated timer (optional) at the faucet. If installing a timer, we recommend using a high-pressure hose extension to relieve the weight of the timer assembly from the faucet.

The Medium Kit includes 2,000' of 15 mil low flow, 8" spaced drip tape which is enough to water up to twenty 100' rows. 2,000' of low flow drip tape uses approximately 400 gallons per hour (GPH). This kit must be divided into two watering zones using the included hose Y () due to the limited capacity of the 1/2" mainline tubing (240 GPH). Do not exceed a maximum of 1,200' of low flow drip tape in either watering zone.
Use the included hose Y to manually switch between watering zones or automate this kit by adding a hose thread, battery-operated timer (not included) at the faucet, and replacing the hose Y with the Galcon Alternator valve (not included). If installing a timer, we recommend using a high-pressure hose extension to relieve the weight of the timer assembly from the faucet.
The pressure regulator in this kit requires a minimum of 0.1 GPM (6 GPH) to begin regulating the water pressure to the 10 PSI needed for the drip tape. We recommend using at least 50' of drip tape in your system to meet this minimum flow rate. Using less than 50' of drip tape at a time may cause leaking at fittings and possibly damage the drip tape.

This was a super easy set up. I wanted to set up my rows so they all had their own individual shut off valves.
I would recommend buying some 1/2" Easy Loc Coupler With Valve to isolate rows. If you have short rows get some more drip tape starts and plugs. You will pretty much need more of all the fittings if you have a garden with more smaller rows. Its a great product overall. Very happy.

- Great product that is easy to install and custom fit to your needs. I am very impressed with the quality.

- So far, I've noticed a DRAMATIC difference in the the amount of weeds I have in my garden. They are so much more manageable than a sprinkler system. Not to mention the amount of water I do use on a daily basis. I do have issues with leaking of one connection point to the main line, and at the water faucet head.

Laid 2000 foot alone from out of the box to watering crops never used anything like this before, not to bad. We will see how it holds up.
Only problem was the tape end caps are a little touchy.

- Easy fast simple. All and all great product

- I have a machine that lays the drip tape as it creates a raise bed. I have had no issue with any of the Drip Works products.

- I decided to do a garden more than 10 times larger than I've ever done this year, so I knew I had to do some sort of irrigation. I was really overwhelmed by all the options and components, so when I found this kit, I was pretty excited! Most other kits only contain enough material for 100 feet of line, and I needed closer to 1200 feet. This kit has fit my needs perfectly! Materials are all high quality. Unlike some kits, Dripworks didn't seem to just toss in the cheapest options they have. Every item is of high quality and works very well. One roll of the drip tape had a big hole at one point, but I was able to cut it so the hole ended up at the end of my roll, so I had no waste and didn't have to use a coupler, but watch out for that, just in case. It is possible that I created the hole and it didn't come like that - just to give full disclosure. Instructions: The instructions were concise, yet easy to follow. The only part I didn't fully understand was how to use the drip tape end fittings. There is only 1 diagram (no text) on how to end the lines. I did my best, but they still leaked very badly. After some looking, I realized that each end needs to be folded multiple times, not just 2 like the diagram shows. My experience: Remember how I said I was overwhelmed? I was terrified to actually lay this stuff out, so the box sat beside by garden for about 2 weeks before I finally decided to tackle it. I opened it and realized there was no reason I should have been scared. It was so EASY! I laid out the mainline tubing first, in 2 zones, then added the drip tape in sections over the next week or so. I like that I can add an extra line whenever and wherever I want without much effort, and I was able to lay each row at my leisure. I had my peas planted much earlier than my tomatoes, so I was able to connect the pea row earlier than the tomato row. Suggestions: I highly recommend getting the lubricant. I got it, but decided to try to connect the tubing without it, and it was tough! With the lube it was effortless. I will also be ordering an automatic timer for the system, and once that is hooked up, it'll be pretty much self-sufficient. I also have plenty of leftover tubing, so I'll be ordering a few extra fittings and another filter and pressure regulator so I can set up a system for my smaller herb and flower garden. Thanks for the great kit!
