Need slower irrigation drip

Post by RPD » Mon Sep 10, 2018 10:47 am

I have a couple of pots on the front porch connected to my irrigation drip system. However, as you see, I haven't been able to find a slow enough drip; it always overflows. I've tried the kind that adjusts down and now have a 1/2-gal/hour drip tip on it (see photo), but these are still too much. Any suggestions?

Your pressure is probably too high on the line, install a pressure regulator to throttle the line pressure down to 30 or 40 psi. ... regulators
