At one of my high end accounts I noticed a drip system needing repair... There were several holes throughout the line and the drip line actually was removed from the fitting. I cut the drip and tried to put it back on the fitting with a clamp but it was so brittle it was breaking.... So, okay fine, I need a new drip line.... However I just wanted to know if there is anything I can do to prevent this deterioration from happening again, and if there is anything special I need to know when installing a drip line. Thanks guys, as I have said before, this is my first year into irrigation, Ive done about 3 installs and all have been great and I'm excited to learn much more about irrigation. This is my first drip line and any tips are greatly appreciated.
