Drip Irrigation Help!
I put together a drip irrigation system that looks as follows.
1 - From a garden spigot => small lead hose => multi connector manifold => timer valve (attached to an orbit timer) => 20 psi pressure regulator => pvc adapter => hose connector => 1/2 inch drip irrigation hose => connector => 1/4 inch drip irrigation tubing => 1/2 gph red drip emitter.
2 - The half inch tube runs around the garden as follow
26 feet straight (part 1) => elbow connector => 5 feet (part 2) => 30 feet straight (part 3).
3 - I have for 1/2 gph emitters towards the end of part 1 and one sprinkler type emitter towards the end of part 3.
When I turn the system on (I have the spigot turned on only ust a little bit), either manually or automatically for 1 minute..the 4 1/2 gph emitters are spraying a stream of water instead of dripping.
What am I doing wrong?
