Sprinkler tubing required - Knowledgebase Question

Parker, Co
Question by jackleatherm

I will design & install a sprinkler near Tampa and need to know the type of pipe I should use? Will I use Poly tubing, like here in Colorado, or should I use rigid PVC pipe? The poly with barbed fittings would be easier than the PVC with glued fittings. We will buy material in your Mulberry, FL store.

You can use either. The ground doesn't freeze in Florida (although plants can be nipped by a cold snap) so you can use PVC or flexible funny pipe for your sprinkler system. I'd go with the material you find easiest to use - either will work in Florida. Best wishes with your project!
