Over the last weekend, I installed the irrigation system for our vegetable garden which is square-shaped. I used 1/2" poly tubing for the main water supply line and then used 1/4" drip line with built-in 1 GPH emitter (12" spacing) for each row. For the connectors between 1/2" and 1/4", I used 2 GPH emitters.
Two problems however:
a) Very little water comes out of the emitters. The size of the spots watered by the emitters are so small.
b) Many vegetables still do not receive the water because no hole exists on the 1/4" tubing around those vegetables.
I am wondering what would be the easiest solution to fix this. Would just punching more holes on the 1/4" drip lines solve the problem? Or, should I use a larger drip line than 1/4" to deliver more water?
Also, I ran the irrigation system for 10 minutes. Should I run more?
