    Where do you get the pipe (without buying something new and expensive)??

    Couldn’t you use a handheld drill instead to make the holes?

    So far I only need 1/5th of a gallon of water per plant per day based on a
    water conservation idea I am trying out.

    Thanks for the video. Good idea with the side pipe and slits. Would avoid
    plastic shavings in the soil though….pvc has issues. But thanks again.

    Way too labor intensive Ron.I live in S.Az.and run 6 rows @70 ft.long and
    use 1/2 in.p.v.c.pipe with small holes every 3 ft.,and you dont even have
    to glue the joints.A valve on each row because my water pressure isn’t the
    greatest.Run Weed-X down the rows.Its a great water saver.All you have to
    do is turn a valve,no carrying the hose through the garden.You should be
    planting 3/4s of the plant in the ground,but to each his own.I had 6
    ft.Indeterminate plants last year loaded with Tomatoes!.
