Drip irrigation to second floor window boxes
I ran a 1/4 inch drip line off my ground level irrigation system straight up about 25 feet and then over (horizontally) about 30 feet above the windows with two T lines coming down about 6 or 7 feet to each window box. A long way to travel I realize.
This was working pretty well with a slow drip, but with enough time, the plants got watered.
Some changes were made on the ground level; in short more water is now going to plants on the ground and my window boxes are not getting enough.
I tried changing the emitter to a 5gph one, but I don't see any difference at the window boxes.
Is there a better way to do this? I want to make sure this is getting water so we can go away and not have water the plants by hand.
