Seamammal,  I don't know if you were asking me about my drip system????  The 1/4" solid tubes feed off a 1/2" main tube that feeds all 3 sides of the back.  This tubing is connected to the original in-ground sprinkler system at several points so there is no loss of water pressure at any point in the approximate 160 foot length. Drip Irrigation for SFG - Page 2 Drip_s10
Many 1/4" solid tubing are connected to this 1/2" solid tubing. Drip Irrigation for SFG - Page 2 Drip_s11
The L-shaped boxes in the "quote" above:  The 1/4" solid tubing that feed these 2 boxes push the envelope on length, 20 and 30 feet.  Yet they still have enough pressure to feed the 1/4" drippers lines.  I think 25 feet of 1/4" dripper line is the max that can be on a 1/4" solid line.

Everything is on timers.  We can legally water 3 days max during the summer.  The flower beds are set at 8-10 minutes a day.  But they are also watered on the other 4 days.  Very Happy  All the front yard flower beds (same timer) have been converted to these quiet drip lines and are under mulch in case the water police are driving through the neighborhood at 4 am.  I hope this answer helps.

PS: I got PM on squash, beans, cantaloupe even though I use drippers. It is what it is.

Thanks for asking.  I'm assuming that you mean when you reply to a post using the 'quote' button.

The easiest way is to be in 'code' mode when you write your post.  The button shown in this pic switches between WYSIWYG mode and code mode.  Code mode shows the code in the edit box, and WYSIWYG shows what your post will look like when posted.  You can switch back and forth without losing anything.


If you wanted to quote this post without the pic, get into code mode and delete the picture code, which looks like

I find it easiest to write all my posts in code mode, then use 'Preview' when I'm done to make sure it looks like I want it to, before I post it.

Got it, Thanks.

Boffer is a wiz and knows more about this forum and computers than just about anyone.  But if he just confused you, what I do is click on the quote button and then highlight the part of the quote I want to delete and then hit delete.

Thanks. I'm good with the code editing. I just retired from my Job as a Network Admin. I dealt with routers, switches and firewalls and all the other security stuff. Never fooled with the desktop stuff. I have always found that I can spend a couple of hours trying to figure something out, or I can just ask someone who has already banged their head against the wall. I already have too many knots in my head from 40 years of doing battle with computers.

I don't twit or myface.  I worked for a school district and my job was to protect the kids from themselves. they kept winning so I decided it was time to surrender and get a life again. I am trying to divest myself of as many technical stuff and all the unhealthiness that comes with it. Hence my new hobby of growing my own goods.  

Ok I guess a simple thanks would have sufficed but that felt good.

Thank You.

Are those 1/4 inch lines running thru your beds the type with the drip emitters in the line?

Thanks for the Help.

Good for you, Seamammal!  My aunt was a psychologist for the school system for many years.  I know it can be very hard on the teachers & other adults trying to care for kids nowadays.  I know I certainly wouldn't/couldn't do it myself.

And I take it you're a GB fan...? Wink
