I have boxes that I've watered by hand using a sprinkling can. The boxes themselves are small at, 8 feet long by 6 inches deep and 6 inches wide. I have them situated in such a manner that the box at the top is about 5 feet from ground level. To look at the six rows of boxes, they look like bleachers. It's very hard to water that top box.
I would like to use something that will water the long boxes and thought of using a soaker line. I'm not sure what I need and where to find what I need. I live in Canada and would like to buy what I need from Canada. I would buy from the States, but when things are sent using UPS, who always go thru Customs, I end up paying more for Shipping and Customs, than whatever it was that I purchased. For Example: I bought a digital scale to weigh vegetables at my market for $9.95 on ebay. By the time I paid the person for shipping, and then UPS and Customs charges, the total amount I paid for the scales was $78.37 US Dollars. I vowed, "Never again." I just can't afford it.
I also have Tomatoes I grow in containers. I have the containers all in a row and need something that will water them. I think these need, "Drip" irrigation. Soaker Hose for the boxes and Drip for the containers. Right?
I read something someplace, where I need a "Preasure" regulator?
I'm probably making this sound more complicated than it is, but I'm sort of lost in it all.
