Another EPIC find for our Gardens and Orchards! Thanks to our friend Scott we add this watering solution to our store. This is a favorite watering system for professional farmers. A flat tube with laser cut holes every 8 inches delivers water consistently across the whole length of tubing. Primarily for use in garden areas, excellent solution for orchards needing slow, application over larger areas. Supply List and Video Link below.
