Our Container Watering Kit is the easy solution to watering rows of containers or just a few pots on your back patio. This kit includes everything you need to install a simple watering system for any size container. The kit includes 40 drip emitters. If using one emitter per plant, that is enough to water 40 containers. For larger containers, you may consider using two drip emitters per container.
The emitters can be placed anywhere the mainline tubing. So this will work with any type of container spacing you may have. Just use the included dripper plug punch to install drip emitters wherever you need. The mainline tubing can also be configured for whatever container layout you have. If your containers are not in a linear row, you can use the elbows included or additional mainline fittings here.
To determine how many emitters your water system can support at one time, first calculate your flow rate in gallons per minute by timing how long it takes to fill a 5 gallon bucket at your water source. Then multiple your gallons per minute calculation x60 to calculate the gallons per hour output from your water source. Since each emitter has an output of 1 gallon per hour, your gallons per hour flow rate will tell you how many emitters you can support at one time.
If your the flow rate at your water source is not sufficient to support the number of emitters you need, simply install our Mainline Connector Valves and water a portion of the system at a time. You can split your watering system into as many divisions as you’d like to accomplish your watering needs.
