drip system install questions

gpc2012(9)July 21, 2013

I'm putting in my first drip system and the main question I have is. When I connect the 1/4 inch hose lines to the 1/2 inch lines do I have to do it on the top of the 1/2 line. or can I put them in on the side of the line so my system lays flatter on the ground. Also I only have straight connectors and cant seem to find any elbows locally. I found them online, but would like to get started today.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I always aim for the side. From the top is more apt to be broke when stepped on.
