Looking for a place that carries drip irrigation system supplies. Home Depot has some sprinkler system stuff, but nothing for the slow drip systems. Looking for tubing, emitters, and hose fittings , and a timer. Must be a place somewhere ?

The HD in HMO has a way better selection than this one in Guaymas. I am very disappointed with the stock in most all departments at the Guaymas HD.

But I havent seen 1/4" tubing with the embedded emitters at any of these places; only the laser-punched drip lines. Are those the emitters you are talking about?

There were timers at HD in HMO, the last time I looked. They are much more expensive than in the States.

When I moved here, I purchase a lot of the disc type emitters (that emit a single stream from the center of the disc) in the 1, 2 and 4gph flows. I wont buy them again. They clog fast and really cant be fixed with vinegar. I have gone to the adjustable flow, 180 degree emitters on the ends of tubing.

I do like the embedded emitter drip lines for their more even flow, but even those require soaking in vinegar each season and regular "flexing" of the emitter to keep them flowing correctly. They just get alkaline buildup.

MM, Maybe this will help you with specificity. Perhaps someone can bring the items needed down.

I looked in the spanish yellow pages for you, and found nothing but listings in Hmo and Obregon.

Thanks Bullshipper, I would think that with all of these nice homes here in San Carlos that some of them would have drip irrigation, and there would be a supply for such, I guess their answer is a Jardinero !

Guzzi, what I really need right now is a timer and a hose fitting for the 1/2" tubing, and some way to convert that to 1/4" tubing just to get what I need watered when we leave for four months. The rest, I can bring down from the States next season.

How far is your 1/2 inch run to the point where you want to start running the 1/4 inch drip lines? How long will your drip lines have to be?

I have a lot of the 90 degree, angled, 1/4 inch fitting that you punch a hole and insert them into the 1/2 inch tubing. I can afford to give you 10, at least. I dont need them returned or replaced.

I also have 100 feet of 1/4 inch emitter line with the emitters at 9 inches apart. I can give you that, but it will have to be replaced by next fall.

I really thought that HD in GYM has the black 1/2" or 5/8" tubing. Check it out for that. If not, I can lend you (for fall replacement) about 20 feet of that stuff. It has no hose fitting ending.

PM me, if interested.

Thanks Hook for your very generous offer. I need to find a timer first before I worry about any of the rest of it. I have all of the 1/4" tubing that I need , and the emmiters are in place. I need whatever it takes to attach a gerden hose to drip system tube to the timer,and then reduce that to the 1/4".

The way it typically goes is this.

-Attach the timer to a standard hose faucet.
-Run the black vinyl 1/2"-5/8" tubing (or simply garden hose) along the areas you want to water with the 1/4 inch tubing
-punch holes into the black vinyl/garden hose and insert the 1/4", 90 degree, angled fittings.
-attach 1/4" tubing to the 90 degree fittings.
-terminate `1/4 inch tubing with a plug or an emitter.

Sounds like maybe all you need is the hose bib timer. I am partial to the ones made by DIG as opposed to the ones I have seen from Orbit. The DIGs give you a bit more flexibility in your programming, if that is important. But if all you do is want to water every 6/12/18/14/48 hours, then the less expensive Orbits are fine. I water my vege garden twice a day and I want it at specific times to reduce the chances of powdery mildew and other nasty things.

Guzzi, I can try again, but they did not have any back in November. I had to have my Landlady bring one from Tucson.

I recently installed a drip and tree watering system at my place and I bought all supplies at Home Depot, Guaymas. The timers are in the garden department, the rest in the plumbing department. They are often out of one thing or another so you may need to make more than one trip.
