Questions about a PVC system
I've tried drip and soaker hose systems. The drip emitters (punch a hole and plug in the drip emitter fitting types) always plugged up, broke off, or gave me trouble. Even at low pressure the black supply lines would get hot in the sun and blow off from the supply fittings). On the other hand, the soaker hoses simply rotted away or got so stiff that they cracked.
I've seen a couple people construct their own PVC system using 3/4 and 1/2 inch PVC with 1/16 inch holes drilled in them. It seems logical that the system would work...if you could properly control the pressure and flow.
Does anyone have any experience using a home made PVC system?
