After putting in our front and back yard flower and vegetable garden, we were faced with the daily task of watering by hand. This was a time-consuming, yet enjoyable exercise. However, when it came time for vacation, we knew we had to find a way to water when we were out of town. A drip watering system on a timer came to our rescue. The entire system of lines, sprayers, and emitters was installed in a couple of days. We were surprised at how smoothly it went together. We really liked the drip tape for its flexibility.
Planning our drip system took some thought. We have a garden with plants that have two different watering needs. Some of our plants require infrequent deep watering, while others require daily watering. The solution was a timer with versatility, so we purchased the Claber DUPLO 8410 Programmable Water Timer, the brains of our newly installed drip system.
We are very pleased with our system. A drip system on a timer is ideal for anyone who either does not have the time to hand water, or just wants the ease and versatility of an automatic system. Don’t be intimidated. With a little instruction, a basic drip watering system is well within reach and well worth the effort.
