the drippers arent designed to be buried. The soil would clog them up


What I meant was I would have used a slow release perforated pipe.

The hanging baskets are on a separate zone, so they wont affect it. There will only be about 6 drippers off it so they will have adequate pressure


Maybe so but it is still the same pump supplying all four zones at the manifold so if the other 3 are on then the line feeding the baskets will be weakened. Am I missing something here?

Pondigger is the man to discuss water and pressure.


I'll take my leave so. Let the expert have a go.

I assume sealing off the end of the pipe would add pressure.
