Hi All,

Some pics of my rooftop garden in Chennai.

https://picasaweb.google.com/114032265054421428063/MyPlantsMarch032014#5986573654653147074

Since I have at least 100 pots I'm planning to switch over to a drip irrigation system due to water shortage in summer. Was wondering if anyone has any ideas/tips on using a system like the one below. Thanks in advance.

Nice garden you have there.

Regarding the drip kit, It looks ok. bit pricey for the components given. More than that, you need to note onthing here. Most of your pots are rectangular(no?) and might need more than 1 emitter per pot. So you might want to take that into consideration. Also, how are you going to connect it. Via a tap from water tank? .
