Watering made simple

Make it easier to keep hanging baskets well-watered and looking their best.

Watering made simple

Keep hanging baskets looking good! It’s easy with drip irrigation.

Simply run the tubing along the porch ceiling and down into the basket, like at left, and make sure the emitter is positioned over the basket, as you see in the smaller inset photo. Hook the whole thing up to a timer and you won’t ever worry about high-visibility combos wilting again.

The tubing can stay in place year-round but where winters get below freezing, take the head assembly off and store it inside. Then uncap the tubing and let it drain. If you’re using the same length of tubing for several baskets you may need to blow it out using an air compressor that has a low pressure nozzle.
