    i need to expand one brown underground hose. when installing how do you get the hose over the fitting on the HPC pipe coupling....do you have to heat it up? also what is good watering time for plants such as exora, junipers, and perennial flowers? 10 minutes? over watering can ruin plants as well true?

    I think what Kiril is trying to say is their is a science to all this that can involve years of in depth college studies. We can't give a sweet general answer.

    Their are links that can help answer these questions for you. Check the first thread on this forum.

    Not if it is netafim. Should be able to push onto a netafim barb.
