Does anyone know the brand of drip irrigation used by the vintage rosary in his article on the site. They are out of business and cannot contact them. Thanks

Sorry, but who is "his", and which site?

When I search "vintage rosary" I don't get anything related to gardening or plants.

More info, please. Smiling

Are you primarily interested in this type of system due to its use of internal emitters? It's an intriguing but elusive product to research! I'm finding a lot of dead-ends. Not sure if these have been discontinued market-wide in favor of external emitters, but I'm still searching. I haven't yet tried a drip system of any type yet; I'm just that certain that I'd be breaking and replacing external emitters constantly! Hilarious!

I happened to be at Lowe's yesterday buying micro-sprinkler supplies, and they do have a type of tubing with internal emitters like that. The Mister Landscaper brand that Lowe's carry is the home version of Maxi-Jet brand used by professionals. They have great quality stuff. Home Depot is carrying a Rain Bird line now that is absolute junk!

No idea if the emitters are those same awesome style that he describes on the site, though. That sounds like a truly excellent system!

Chelle, the vintage rosary guy is right, most of the drip irrigation stuff out there that I have tried won't last past 2 years. I found on one of the internet searches something real close, but it was out of New Zealand.

dyzzpypyxxy, thanks for the lowes idea, I looked on home depot but didn't think about lowes. I really liked the self healing part. Vintage rosary guy said it was professional quality, I think I will give it a try. Here in our part of the state, we have been having snow and all the nurseries are slow getting the spring plants. Think I'll wait a week and make the trip worth while.
Thanks again for the direction.

Another plus for the Lowe's product - Mister Landscaper and Maxi-Jet are Made in the USA!

I like also that it says "made with durable UV resins that will withstand extreme climate conditions".
