New Larger capacity drip irrigation kits are HERE

Post  SFGHQSTAFF on 6/13/2011, 10:38 am

Hey Everyone,
We have heard back from many of you and you have expressed the need for a higher capacity Drip system for those of you who want to water many boxes or large systems at once. Our orignial system works great when you have 2-3 boxes, but many of you have 5-10 boxes or large (4x10 types) of boxes and want to water those as well. We heard. We are introducing our new larger capacity drip systems. These new systems will water just about as many boxes as you can throw at it! It is larger than the normal system so only get it if you want to water many boxes at once. You can see it:
HERE-starter kit
and
HERE-add on kit

This kit is even easier to connect add on kits to and for a limited time, we are introducing them at the same price as our standard kits! Let us know what you think of them!

thank your for sharing this!

hubby and i just put in a soaker hose in our three sisters garden out back.....i was trying to explain to him about the drip system and i didnt know how much they were or where to even buy them......im so excited now to have found this.....this is perfect for our SFG box's.....i like how i can have the hose lay on the ground and then the drippers can go up in to the box's..... Very Happy

i dont know anything about using this kind of method.....i have been hand watering or using the hose to water......does the drip system let out the same amount of water as does a soaker hose?......we just used the soaker hose for the first time yesterday and im not sure how well its going to work.....seems like i will have to let it run for a long time.......

hugs

Awesome Alan! :idea: I wonder if I can convince my DH that I need an early Birthday present. Twisted Evil

I have a couple of questions:
- How close do your boxes have to be to "add-on" from the starter kit and each subsequent add-on? My boxes are about 2 1/2 - 3 feet apart.
- Would these work for tabletops? I have two 4x3 tabletops. How would I get the tape up to the top of the box?

Here is a diagram of my boxes for reference:


Thank you! Very Happy
