This tubing is MUCH TOO POROUS for its narrow inside-diameter. 90% of the water dribbles out in the first two feet of tubing even with it direct-connect to a 1/4" garden hose adapter at 40 psi. I've used granulated rubber porous drip tubing before, and it was able to supply drip lengths of 30 feet, and maybe longer.
This tubing might be useful in 1 or 2 foot lengths, but it has a high flow rate, so take that into consideration for both the plant's watering requirements as well as the supply tubing size if you plan to put in a large number of branches.
I bought this to make irrigation rings (with some plastic T's) for my potted plants last spring. These work great they are very porous almost like a sponge. I tested these at different flow rates and the rings worked much better at lower pressure. At high pressure the drops come out at higher volume closer to the pump. At lower pressure the hose seems to fill up evacuating the air then evenly distribute the drops. If you run nutrients then they will clog pretty quick. Mine started to clog in about 2 weeks and I had to take them all off and soak them in hot water. This is running at interval waterings. I'm not sure of the performance when being used as a continuous drip setup.
bought and returned, totally unusable. Hooked up to drip line, all the water pours out in the first five feet. Some drip for the next ten feet. Then dry the rest of the way. Tried using it as two short pieces, still useless.
