Use the 13mm supply tube to distribute the water around the garden and then 4mm micro tubing to take the water from the supply tube to the plants.

Use elbows, t-pieces and connectors to make the network. Use wall clips and stakes to secure it in place. The pipe can be buried up to 5cm in ground or covered with mulch.

Tip: Save water and help your plants by using micro tube to position drippers and spinklers close to the roots and in the shade of leaves.

This way your plants will take up more water, the soil will remain moist and evaporation will be lower.

C - Drippers
