My neighbor is helping me install a drip irrigation system. He uses drip for his market garden. Do any of you use this system?

I use drip irrigation all over the place, but especially in my row vegetable gardens.

I use T-Tape from dripworks:

That looks like what I'm getting. So far we have a few rows done, and I've used it once, with more to be added as the planting progresses. I'm learning about it by helping with the installation. It's much simpler than I thought it would be. I think I'll put some straw mulch over the lines to protect them from UV rays and prolong their life.

I've been using drip irrigation for over 25 years. Currently I use the 1/4" Soaker Dripline for the row crops:
