    What are your thoughts about using a rain water holding tank with this system? I curently have a sump pump on the tank.Do you think this would work? I have thought about instaling a watering system for a few years but hesitated because I didn't know for sure if it would work plus the expense and having to replace parts after the winter. I would appreciate your responce.

    Have a soaker hose with special tape to create water separation. Other places a spaced perforated regular hose below surface. Just works for me. Have a timer on the system. How about some garden snake residents. Love those squirmy little rascals

    No matter where you get your water use the filter. If you get a water break near by, you can get trash in your line. Basically clogging every drip emitter in your circuit.

    We use a machine to lay plastic and it covers up the drip. He uses holes every 6 inches. He hooks drip so he can give nutrients to any part of garden. And he also uses timers. All of our drip is gravity fed with 10 -15 lbs of pressure. All our gardens are sloped so everything works with gravity. He also uses a sand filter so nothing can clog lines. Everything in Colorado is irrigated. We have canals that were built in the 1920s. We use city water until canals are opened which just opened water today April 8th.

    I've been thinking more and more about drip irrigation. The one huge benefit I find from hand watering is, it forces me to be in the garden and paying attention to the plants. I find the time I spend watering causes me to focus color of the plants (nutrients) and insect problems. But if I'm being honest with myself, I'd still be out there every day looking whether I have irrigation or not. I love my garden!
