Anybody had experience of water drippers for hanging baskets?

The thing not to forget and what is also important to consider in all irrigation is the water flow. As the pressure reducer keeps it down to 1 bar then pressure is regulated. What you need is at least 8 litres a minute flow rate. And as mentioned if you’re going to push the distance above 20 meters then using 1/2" main pipe would help in some cases and sparing off. As you’re only using 3 drippers the exit points shouldn’t make that much of a difference. Adjustable drippers are a very good choice. It’s important to make sure that you deliver enough water to the plants without wasting any.
