Drop one of these bad boys in at each rose. Connect it inline with your drip tube, use the bubbler nozzle and you're set. Now you just have to figure out how to get them from CA to TX.

Technically, we can't take advantage of the unrestricted category for unlimited watering unless it is drip...bubblers kinda fit, even though micro sprays save water, they will be illegal. ...RAINBIRD also makes a zeri pcm nozzle...low flow for xericaping situations..for a popup..used those in other situations..

Heh...Spanish subtitles

If drip irrigation gets a better watering window than sprays or rotors, I would think micro-sprays or popups wouldn't be added to emitter lines.

We could water 24/7 on drip...Law says "underground drip"...needs to be changed to include micro sprays etc....like a fool, when I was at the meeting two years ago, I didn't think to suggest mico also.

The intent was to push folks toward drip/conservation by allowing no restrictions on it...overhead sprays typically get only 55 to 65 percent of water on ground..drip is 90 percent efficient..hence saves water...

If the law specifically applies to SDI, then micro sprays don't fit that category as they are just as vulnerable (if not considerably more) to wind drift and evaporation as a conventional spray. SDI at the proper depth essentially eliminates these two losses.

If the law were modified so that "underground drip" became "drip" then it would allow for various emitter arrangements that are physically stronger than punched-in emitters, like multiple-outlet emitter housings and the like.

True...mostly the intent was to elimate the large volume loss from popups..micro may have same loss percentage, but volume is reduced..i dont like microsrpays for many reasons...not all micros are same..multistream micro have much larger water droplets and streams..not sure those have high losses

Since our beds have roses and now some other perennials we aren't working stuff like compost into it and now that is another problem.

I think I am just going to take your idea and stick those watering devices
into the drip tubing. I am now afraid that I might get run0ff. If I take the device back out do they make a plug for the hole?
