Will the above work with a connection to a rain barrel? (no pressure just gravity)

I don't think the drip system will work because it needs pressure to push the water through the holes in the emmiters but a soaker hose might work. Gravity should make the water run down through the soaker hose, depending upon how much water is in the rain barrel. The weight of the water will provide some pressure to push it out through the hose. I think you'll need to experiment to see how it works with your particular rain barrel and soaker hose. Good luck with your project!
