    Two things I was hoping to avoid before I retire is netafim in the lawn and two wire. Well lost on the lawn netafim. I'll post pics for commentary. The repair was for the broken connections at the driveway. It runs 5.5gpm and does an area about 40' by 30'.

    Last of the pics and Henry's homemade poker for netafim. Works great.

    seems like 2 different color drip tubes. Is one netafim and 1 RB?

    Yes. The original is RB. Had a hard time pushing my barbs in. Thank goodness it was 95 degrees.

    RB tells ya its the same size but its like 1/100 of an inch different , just enough to be a pita.

    Digging the poker, I never though to twist a staple into a more ergonomic shape.

    I've found that the hunter adjustment tool works great for emitter punching too.
